Product description


"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

"Smart, sophisticated storytelling freighted with real suspense--a very fine novel by any standard."
--Lee Child

"One of the most spellbinding psychological thrillers we've read in years. Beautifully written, exquisitely plotted, the story relentlessly pulls you in and doesn't let you go until the last shocking (and yet brutally logical) twist. This is an absolutely fantastic and extraordinary read."
--Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, #1 New York Times bestselling authors of the Pendergast series

"Alex Michaelides has written one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read. The Silent Patient is a swarming, paranoid nightmare of a novel with an ending that is destined to go down as one of the most shocking, mind-blowing twists in recent memory."
--Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter

"This is a wonderful new voice. Listen to it. It's about to tell you a thrilling and scary story. The Silent Patient paints a picture, crawling into your soul in the very best way. Take a chance."
--Brad Meltzer, author of The Escape Artist

"Absolutely brilliant... I read it in a state of intense, breathless excitement."
--Stephen Fry

"The definition of a page turner. The twist comes as hard and fast as a slap across the fact."
--John Mars, bestselling author of The Good Samaritan

"An excellent, slow-burning psychological thriller; sharp, clever and with a whammy that genuinely took me by surprise (it takes a lot to do this). Kudos to the author. More, please."
--Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat

"One of the best thrillers I've read this year. Masterfully plotted and brilliantly paced by a writer at the top of his game."
--Cara Hunter
