The Silent Patient Alex Michaelides


41ifIjpRtGL._AC_US218_Pub:  Orion

Alicia Berenson writes a diary as a release, an outlet – and to prove to her beloved husband that everything is fine. She can’t bear the thought of worrying Gabriel, or causing him pain.

Until, late one evening, Alicia shoots Gabriel five times and then never speaks another word.

Forensic psychotherapist Theo Faber is convinced he can successfully treat Alicia, where all others have failed. Obsessed with investigating her crime, his discoveries suggest Alicia’s silence goes far deeper than he first thought.

And if she speaks, would he want to hear the truth?


My review

Obviously an ‘OMFG you must read’ review  is not appropriate!!!


OMFG you must read this.

It is a terrifically suspense filled and emotionally charged read that will be THE book of 2019

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy and I honestly do not know how DEBUT author Alex Michaelides will follow this book. IT IS JUST NOT POSSIBLE!!!

Alicia is in The Grove being institutionalised for the murder of her husband, she has not spoken a word since his death and Theo believes he is the one to make her speak of what happened on that fateful night.

This is novel unlike any other novel you have read before, the twist when it comes is like nothing you have read is the most genius and original of plots I have ever come across.

Superbly written, it is just explosive. It is going to make a brilliant film
