Staff Reviews


Alicia is a painter who seems to have it all - fame, talent, and a loving husband who was a successful photographer. Until one night she shoots him five times in the face and never speaks again. Enter Theo into the psych ward, a criminal psychotherapist who thinks he can figure her out. I could not put this down. I kept guessing and was wrong every time. A thriller that really messes with your mind. Can you guess what happens before the end?

The Silent Patient is an outstanding thriller centered on a spellbinding mystery with a shocking twist; in other words, you are going to love this book. Alicia was a talented painter and devoted wife until the night she was discovered still as a statue and covered in blood, having apparently killed her husband. The answer as to why has remained locked inside of Alicia, who stops speaking following the murder. Six years later, Theo, a young psychologist, is determined to get the mysterious Alicia to spill all of her secrets. The final surprise will have you rethinking every riveting scene in this brilliant debut.”
