BJ’s Standout Reads February 2020
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides I did not see the ending coming on this one. Theo is a psychotherapist who starts work at a new hospital drawn to working with a famous patient, Alicia. Alicia was an artist who shot her husband and has since stopped talking—she did not participate in her own defense and hasn’t spoken for years. It’s Theo’s mission to get her to talk again. But when she does talk will she tell the truth about what happened the night her husband was killed.
Fate is a Hunter by Susan Wuthrich Lydia comes home one day to find her husband and her children were gone-closets cleaned out, like gone gone. She embarks on a trip to South Africa, where her husband is from to try to track them down. While on the hunt she realizes that her husband isn’t at all who he said he is, and that complicates the search for her missing children.
