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. THEOForensic 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 thriller really well written, I enjoyed reading this as it a quick page turner.

It is based on a murder and the wife is accused of killing her husband.

The forensic psychotherapist makes it his mission to get her to talk and find out who has killed her husband.

A really good read
