Anmerkung des Herausgebers

Resounding silence…

The latest craze in psychological thrillers is right here. In Alex Michaelides’ debut, a painter is convicted of murdering her husband, and refuses to talk after his death. One psychotherapist is particularly determined to hear her side of the story.

Beschreibung

This program includes a bonus interview with the author.

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

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening, her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations — a search for the truth that threatens to consume him....

    I very much enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the writing style and most of the characters. Absolutely didnt see where the ending was taking me until 9ish chapters to the end.

    I rate this 4.5 stars.

    I love how he made this a lose retelling of an obscure Greek tragedy. I had never heard of that Greek story before reading this book.


    My full review is on goodreads.

    Great premise and I really wanted to like it but fell flat for me. Found it boring, a bit predictable and the narrator, along with the main characters, were a bit one dimensional.

    This book had so many twists and turns and kept you guessing who the murderer was!!! During the book I was convinced it was 3 or 4 people and then there was a HUGE twist at the end and I was in complete shock!! AMAZING!!!!!! I may need to re-read just to see if I can find any hints along the way!!

    This is my favorite kind of whodunnit! I thought all of the characters were very compelling and well-developed. The story caught me up from the first page and I didn’t want to put it down. I loved the ending - it made me want to start over and read the whole thing again.
