Review: The Silent Patient

Alicia is the silent patient, a successful painter who seemingly killed her loving husband of a happy marriage and tried to commit suicide, and who has been unable or unwilling to speak ever since. Theo Fabre is a psychotherapist who wants to help and understand his patient. To do this, he seeks to understand what happened on the day of the murder-attempted-suicide, what is going on in Alicia’s mind, and how the lies of the people he speaks with can fit together into a truth.

As a bonus, the main narrator for the audiobook sounds like Alexander Siddig, so I imagined Doctor Bashir trying to solve a murder.

5/5 👍
