The Silent Patient

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Alicia Berenson is a famous painter married to a fashion photographer living in London. It seems like the perfect life – until one night when Alicia shoots and kills her husband. From that day forward, she never speaks another word and becomes “the silent patient” in a criminal unit. A criminal psychotherapist is convinced he can get her to speak and explain her crime. But this isn’t a typical mystery – many storylines are weaved together that tangle psychosis, sanity and the therapist’s ultimate motivation.
