**THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER** "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....

Very interesting read and a great psychological thriller. I didn't expect the ending at all although I should've suspected so when the psychoanalyst never doubted her guilt, almost everyone who knew seemed convinced she didn't do it, but he despite the fact that he was so keen on helping her, never mentioned his doubt of her guilt. When all was revealed, I was actually on the verge of forgiving him up until he tried to kill her and then framed his colleague. It's definitely worth reading.

Great psychological thriller - squarely in the camp of Gone Girl, or Woman in The Window, or Girl on the Train. Totally page turner- read it in 2 sittings. Great holiday beach read, with a twisty ending, but not a ton of substance.
