Virtual Book Club: The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Monday, January 4, 2021 20 Tevet 5781

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

On Monday, December 7, the Book Club met via Zoom for a dynamic presentation of The Third Daughter  by author Talia Carner. Explaining how she researches and creates her books, there was also an opportunity for participants to ask questions and offer comments. Thanks to Toby Morganstein and Marcy Brody for setting this up.

Our next meeting will be via Zoom at 10:30am on Monday, January 4 when we we will discuss THE SILENT PATIENT by Alex Michaelides:

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations­­—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him.

I will send out the Zoom link a week prior to the meeting. Please RSVP to me at or 443.223.9729.
