The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
The main character at the heart of The Silent Patient, Alicia, seems to have the perfect life: she lives in a grand home in London, is a successful painter, and is married to an in-demand fashion photographer. But things change when her husband, Gabriel, comes home one night and Alicia shoots him five times in the face. Making matters more interesting? She now refuses to say a single word. With her life now in chaos, criminal psychotherapist Theo Faber is brought on board to coax something, anything, out of her that might explain why she killed her husband.
