Reviews for The Silent Patient

Impossible to put down, with a twist that will blow your mind * MARK EDWARDS, bestselling author of THE MAGPIES * 'Just one more chapter. Just one more. Then I'll stop.' Once you pick up The Silent Patient, this will be what you'll say to yourself, until you give in and keep reading until the blindsiding and brilliantly clever conclusion - no matter how good a sleuth you are, you aren't going to see it coming * EMILY KOCH, author of IF I DIE BEFORE I WAKE * 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 * 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, author of the New York Times bestseller DARK MATTER * Genuinely chilling and with a real sucker punch of a twist * SHARON BOLTON, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE CRAFTSMAN * The definition of a page turner. The twist comes as hard and fast as a slap across the face. * JOHN MARRS, bestselling author of THE GOOD SAMARITAN * I was kicking myself black and blue that I did not see *that* moment coming. I have never been so happily wrong-footed. A very clever book - highly recommended. * C. J. TUDOR, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE CHALK MAN * 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, Sunday Times bestselling author of CLOSE TO HOME * 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 AM - I've finished it, absolutely dazzled * A. J. Finn, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW * Smart, sophisticated suspense - a very fine novel by any standard * LEE CHILD * The Silent Patient sneaks up on you like a slash of intimidating shadow on a badly lit street. 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 * Absolutely brilliant . . . I read it in a state of intense, breathless excitement and never saw the ending coming. Not for a second! * STEPHEN FRY *
