A very suspenseful story

The Silent Patient

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A chilling mystery with lots of twists and turns.

Alicia was charged with murdering her husband and hasn’t spoken a word since that day. An accomplished artist, their marriage was thought to be perfect. Why would she kill him? Unless maybe she didn’t?

As her psychotherapist digs deeper to understand her silence he uncovers others who could very likely have done the deed. The more we learn about Alicia, the more we learn about her doctor, who is human and flawed as well.

This was intriguing and I didn’t see the ending until it hit me. Good stuff, Alex!!
