The Silent Patient
by Alex Michaelides
Praise For This Book:
"Impressive first novel... with an ending worthy of a classic Agatha Christie mystery." —The Wall Street Journal

"Superb... This edgy, intricately plotted psychological thriller establishes Michaelides as a major player in the field." —Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"Pulling off a novel where the protagonist stays mum isn't easy, but this impressive, immersive debut—Brad Pitt's company has snapped up film rights—establishes Michaelides as a writer to watch." —People, Book of the Week

"Impressive debut...The Silent Patient is intelligent, imaginative and a terrific read." —The Times (London), Book of the Month

"The Silent Patient may be a first novel, but it has the pace and finesse of a master." —BBC

"That rarest of beasts: the perfect thriller. This extraordinary novel set my blood fizzing—I quite literally couldn't put it down. I told myself I'd just dip in; eleven hours later—it's now 5:47 a.m.—I've finished it, absolutely dazzled." —A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

“The Silent Patient sneaks up on you like a slash of intimidating shadow on a badly lit street. Alex Michaelides has crafted a totally original, spellbinding psychological mystery so quirky, so unique that it should have its own genre. I read it in two nights and savored every luscious word, every grim encounter, every startling twist. The pages will burn with the friction from your hands turning them.” —David Baldacci
