Book Review
The Silent Patient​ by Alex Michaelides

4.7 stars out of 5 stars

In ​The Silent Patient ​by Alex Michaelides, join criminal psychotherapist Theo Faber as he tries to understand the mind of his silent patient, Alicia. Alicia has been accused of mysteriously murdering her husband and has been cast away to a psychiatric hospital. Will Theo find the truth about Alicia even though she refuses to speak? With points of view from Theo and Alicia’s diary, readers will quickly become engrossed in this New York Times bestseller. A great book for anyone looking for a thriller with an ending that will leave you speechless.
