A compulsive, page-turning psychological thriller, the New York Times bestselling book The Silent Patient (Orion Hachette 2019) by Alex Michaelides has sold over a million copies.

This is an engrossing and immersive story about a psychotherapist and the patient who has not spoken in the six years since she killed her husband. Of course, nothing is as simple as it at first appears. Part of the story is narrated by Theo, the psychotherapist, and part is in the form of diary entries by the patient, Alicia, a once-prominent artist. This is everything you expect from a high impact crime thriller, with possible unreliable narrators and a killer twist. Perfect holiday reading.
