The Book Guide® Editor
Alicia’s refusal to talk, or provide any kind of explanation, makes her domestic tragedy into something far greater than just a domestic tragedy. It becomes a mystery that captures the attention of the public. She, the silent patient, who was once the subject of tabloid headlines and the spotlight at the Grove, now lives in a secure forensic unit in north London. Theo Faber is an experienced criminal psychologist who has been waiting a long time for the chance to work with Alicia. He is determined to get her to talk, and he will go to any length to do so. But he must be careful not to let his own motivations get in the way of finding out the truth.
