THE SILENT PATIENT by Alex Michaelides


This is a brilliantly told story by a terrific new writer who has had the courage and skill to dump the more conventional tropes of thrillers and write from the heart… a complex and compelling examination of how damaged people are so uniquely equipped to do damage to others. The writer wears his learning lightly but to great effect right down to the final sentence, which is quite brilliant.’ – The Daily Mail
