The Silent Patient

Alicia Berenson has a perfect life. She’s a beautiful artist, married to a fashion photographer, living the life in London. One night she shoots her husband Gabriel, five times in the face, and decides never to speak again. She is institutionalized. Both her + her deceased husband’s artwork sky-rockets in value. Years later though, she still refuses to speak. The book is told from the perspective of criminal psychotherapist Theo Faber, who is fascinated (maybe to a fault) by Alicia. He becomes obsessed with treating her, and is led down a very dark path as he discovers the truth. There’s a HUGE twist and I guessed it literally one page before the big reveal which is the most satisfying!
