• Alicia, jeune peintre britannique en vogue, vit dans une superbe maison près de Londres avec Gabriel, photographe de mode. Quand elle est retrouvée chez elle, hagarde et recouverte de sang devant le cadavre de son mari défiguré, la presse s'enflamme. Aussitôt arrêtée, Alicia ne prononce plus le moindre mot, même au tribunal. Elle est jugée mentalement irresponsable et envoyée dans une clinique psychiatrique.
    Six ans plus tard, le docteur Theo Faber, ambitieux psychiatre, n'a qu'une obsession : faire reparler Alicia. Quand un poste se libère dans la clinique où elle est internée, il réussit à s'y faire embaucher, et entame avec elle une série de face-à-face glaçants dans l'espoir de lui extirper une parole. Et alors qu'il commence à perdre espoir, Alicia s'anime soudain. Mais sa réaction est tout sauf ce à quoi il s'attendait...
    Dans la veine de Mensonges sur le divan d'Irvin Yalom, un redoutable mélange de suspense et de psychanalyse qui ravira tous les lecteurs avides d'histoires prenantes.

  • I love him so totally, completely, sometimes it threatens to overwhelm me. Sometimes I think . . . No. I won't write about that. ALICIA Alicia Berenson writes a diary as a release, an outlet - and to prove to her beloved husband that everything is fine. She can't bear the thought of worrying Gabriel, or causing him pain. Until, late one evening, Alicia shoots Gabriel five times and then never speaks another word. THEO Forensic psychotherapist Theo Faber is convinced he can successfully treat Alicia, where all others have failed. Obsessed with investigating her crime, his discoveries suggest Alicia's silence goes far deeper than he first thought. And if she speaks, would he want to hear the truth? The Silent Patient is a heart-stopping debut thriller about a woman's brutal and random act of violence against her husband - and the man obsessed with discovering why.
