About the book
I love him so totally, completely, sometimes it threatens to overwhelm me. Sometimes I think . . . No. I won't write about that. ALICIA 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. THEO 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? The Silent Patient is a heart-stopping debut thriller about a woman's brutal and random act of violence against her husband - and the man obsessed with discovering why.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
One of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read . . . with an ending that is destined to go down as one of the most shocking, mind-blowing twists in recent memory
One of the most hotly anticipated novels of this year
Impossible to put down, with a twist that will blow your mind
An excellent, slow-burning psychological thriller; sharp, clever and with a whammy that genuinely took me by surprise
An unforgettable - and Hollywood-bound - new thriller
Comes with a killer twist
A hugely impressive debut
Genuinely chilling and with a real sucker punch of a twist
The definition of a page turner. The twist comes as hard and fast as a slap across the face.
A neatly woven, intelligently written story that lifts the curtain on the complexities of trauma and the human psyche
I was kicking myself black and blue that I did not see *that* moment coming. I have never been so happily wrong-footed. A very clever book - highly recommended.
A superior psycho-thriller
One of the best thrillers I've read this year. Masterfully plotted and brilliantly paced by a writer at the top of his game
The Silent Patient may be a first novel, but it has the pace and finesse of a master
A taut, meticulously plotted and compelling novel
The perfect thriller. I quite literally couldn't put it down
Smart, sophisticated suspense - a very fine novel by any standard
I read it in two nights and savoured every luscious word, every grim encounter, every startling twist
Intelligent, imaginative and a terrific read
Masterly plotting, Hitchcockian suspense and an absolute jaw-dropper of an ending. Read this book!
Absolutely brilliant . . . I read it in a state of intense, breathless excitement
