I was hooked by the story The Silent Patient, by Alex Michaelides. It was a brilliant book with great twists. The list of suspects I had was long, and I was completely wrong on what I thought would happen multiple times.

The book is about Theo Faber, a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time to work with Alicia, who shot her husband five times in the face and never spoke again. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path and in search of the truth.

The best part of the book is when Alicia finally decides to talk, and Theo figures out the truth behind the murder of Alicia’s husband—what looked to be a domestic tragedy turned into something far grander.
