Book Review - The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Alicia Berenson's life looks perfect from the outside. She is a famous painter and is married to a famous fashion photographer. Together they live in a beautiful house in a posh area. However, one night Gabriel returns late from work and Alicia shoots him in the face five times. Then, she never speaks another word.

After Alicia refuses to talk, the public imagination runs wild and casts Alicia as a villain. The price for her artwork explodes. She is cast as the silent patient. Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist and is anxious to work with Alicia. He is determined to have her talk and unravel the mystery behind her husband's murder.

I found the novel to be a spellbinding read. At first, I thought the book was going to have the predictable twist that Alicia was set up. However, I was surprised by how many interesting and unpredictable twists the novel had.  I questioned every character and if anything the narrator told us was really true. Overall, one of my favorite books this season and I can't wait to read more books by the author.
