A #1 New York Times Bestseller

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect: she’s a famous painter married to a fashion photographer and they live in a grand house in London. One evening, Alicia shoots and kills her husband then never speaks another word. The mystery captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. She, the silent patient, is held at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London. Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist determined to get Alicia to talk and explain her crime. But this takes Theo down a twisting path into his own motivations — a search for the truth that threatens to consume him.
