Produktbeskrivning

Recension

Impressive first novel... with an ending worthy of a classic Agatha Christie mystery.
--The Wall Street Journal

Superb... This edgy, intricately plotted psychological thriller establishes Michaelides as a major player in the field.
--Publisher's Weekly, starred review

Pulling off a novel where the protagonist stays mum isn't easy, but this impressive, immersive debut--Brad Pitt's company has snapped up film rights--establishes Michaelides as a writer to watch.
--People, Book of the Week

Impressive debut...The Silent Patient is intelligent, imaginative and a terrific read.
--The Times (London), Book of the Month

The Silent Patient may be a first novel, but it has the pace and finesse of a master.
--BBC

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

Dark, edgy, and compulsively readable.
--Library Journal

The Silent Patient isn't quiet at all. It loudly announces that Alex Michaelides is a new talent in the field of psychological thrillers.
--Shelf Awareness

Unputdownable, emotionally chilling, and intense, with a twist that will make even the most seasoned suspense reader break out in a cold sweat.
--Booklist

A taut, meticulously plotted and compelling novel.
--The Observer
