The Silent Patient

Cure forensic unit in North LondonTheo 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 hi The beginning hooked me in because I was intrigued to learn about Alicia s story how her husband was murdered and why she chose to remain silent However the book ended up bordering as a cheesy murder mystery with the main character acting like a white knight detective who would uestion a bunch of cartoonish side characters that just outright admit their motivations or feelings about Alicia The twist was interesting but a bit shaky I think it could have been built up in a believable way
