The Silent Patient

By Alex Michaelides

Release Date: February 5, 2019

Ebook Available from WV Reads!

3 Stars - A mystery that's a real page-turner and a quick read. It's like Shutter Island meets domestic thriller and Greek tragedy in complex character study from two interesting narrators. Alicia hasn't spoken a word since her husband was murdered. She was found with his body and everyone is convinced she murdered him. But of course there's more to the story than meets the eye. Enter Theo, a curious psychologist, who is her new therapist more or less. Although his actions are more like those of a detective. Lots of side characters cross their paths and there's no shortage of secrets to reveal. There's a lot of dialouge and popping in and out of scenes, but it makes for a fast, almost frantic read. Will appeal to many modern mystery fans.
