Average Goodreads Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4.13)

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

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. She's a world famous painter married to another famous fashion photographer. They live in a grand house in London's most desirable neighborhoods.

One night, her husband Gabriel returns home late from a shoot, and Alicia shoots him. Five times. In the face. Then she never speaks another word. 

Her refusal to speak turns this domestic tragedy into something bigger. A mystery that captures the attention of the public imagination and gives her an air of notoriety. Forced into hiding (and having to pay for her crimes), Alicia is hidden away from the tabloids at the Grove, a secure forensic unit.

It's at the Grove Alicia meets Theo Faber, a criminal psychotherapist who begins to treat Alicia. Theo has waited for this opportunity, and his determination to get her to open up and speak again becomes his obsession. Will he learn Alicia's true motive? Or will his search for the truth threaten to consume him entirely?
