"An unforgettable—and Hollywood-bound—new thriller... A mix of Hitchcockian suspense, Agatha Christie plotting, and Greek tragedy."
Entertainment Weekly

The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband—and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive.

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him....


  • Thin and trite

    This book has zero character development and is a trite, predictable whodunnit. I’m actually annoyed at the person who recommended it to me. I’m sure it will make a great Lifetime movie. I gave it two stars because I finished it. Never again with this author.

    I’m one of the few who did not enjoy The Silent Patient. The characters and storyline were depressing. The ending was contrived and spotted half way thru the book. I’m not sure why I kept reading.

    Very well written, I found myself not being able to put it down. Every page kept me wanting more. Every page got more and more exciting, even to the very last chapter to the very last sentence I was so interested to see what was about to be said next. Highly recommended, if you haven’t read it, it’s a must read.
