She tied her husband to a chair.
She shot him multiple times.
She slit her own wrists.
She waited for the police to arrive.
At least, that's what THEY say she did. Alicia Berenson isn't SAYING anything.
When Theo Faber, criminal psychotherapist, takes a new job at The Grove, he is well aware of their most famous patient, Alicia Berenson. The woman caught red-handed after killing her husband and who has remained silent since.
In fact, Theo's goal is to work with her, to see if he can get her to reveal what really happened on the night her husband was killed. He's not sure he believes the official story.
Through Theo's perspective, his investigation, and Alicia's own diary entries, the reader is brought along on a hair-raising mystery that is not for the faint of heart.
Guys, I absolutely loved this book.
This is the type of thriller that I really enjoy sinking my teeth into.
The use of the diary entries, paired with Theo's investigations, made for a perfectly paced reveal!
Michaelides is definitely an author to watch. I, for one, cannot wait to see what he comes up with next.
