Alicia Berenson sembra avere una vita perfetta: è un'artista di successo, ha sposato un noto fotografo di moda e abita in uno dei quartieri più esclusivi di Londra. Poi, una sera, quando suo marito Gabriel torna a casa dal lavoro, Alicia gli spara cinque volte in faccia freddandolo. Da quel momento, detenuta in un ospedale psichiatrico, Alicia si chiude in un mutismo impenetrabile, rifiutandosi di fornire qualsiasi spiegazione. Oltre ai tabloid e ai telegiornali, a interessarsi alla «paziente silenziosa» è anche Theo Faber, psicologo criminale sicuro di poterla aiutare a svelare il mistero di quella notte. E mentre a poco a poco la donna ricomincia a parlare, il disegno che affiora trascina il medico in un gioco subdolo e manipolatorio.

(2.5) This was a solid.... meh for me. I was excited to pick up this psychological thriller because it has been getting some hype but it was a disappointment.

The beginning hooked me in because I was intrigued to learn more about Alicia's story, how her husband was murdered, and why she chose to remain silent. However, the book ended up bordering as a cheesy murder mystery, with the main character acting like a white-knight detective who would question a
5 shining stars! We finally have a winner. It’s really page-turner, meticulously developed, smartly written book. I liked the final twist and ending of the book. Did my spider sense catch it?
