5 thrillers to read if you you loved ‘The Silent Patient’
If you read and loved The Silent Patient, here are five psychological thrillers we think you’ll enjoy.
The Practice of Deceit
When Eric Lavender gives up his perch as one of Manhattan’s hippest and most eligible psychotherapists, it’s to marry the sexy Colleen O’Brien Golden, and he’s so besotted he considers trading Manhattan for married life in the suburbs a bargain. But heroically helping police during a hostage crisis leads to revelations about secrets in Colleen’s past, and those secrets land Eric in handcuffs — maybe for a long, long time — in this sharp thriller that goes from marital bliss to mayhem in no time flat.
The Practice of Deceit by Elizabeth Benedict
Forensic psychiatrist Emma is tasked with determining if suburban housewife Connie can stand trial for the heinous crime with which she’s been charged. The more time Emma spends with Connie, though, the more Connie feels like a friend, not a patient. Is Connie an innocent woman being railroaded for a crime she didn’t commit, or is she a master manipulator, about to penetrate Emma’s professional distance and pull her into a dangerous game? Two narrators and one cat-and-mouse game drive this powerful thriller.

Sometimes I Lie
When Amber wakes up in a hospital, she is in a coma, unable to move or communicate, or even open her eyes. But she can hear the people around her, including a therapist who advocated shock therapy, and as she tried to piece together what has brought her to this point, she observes three things: she’s in a coma, her husband doesn’t love her anymore, and sometimes she lies. That last may be the only truth this unreliable narrator tells in this claustrophobic and unsettling thriller as it hurtles through a series of twists, pivots, and shocking reveals.

All Is Not Forgotten
The small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, is picture-perfect, until the night local teenager Jenny Kramer is raped at a party. After she is given a controversial drug to medically erase memories of the attack, neither Jenny nor her family are prepared for the effects of her emotional memories of the rape. And when they seek psychiatric help as a family, all it does is widen fissures that already existed in the marriage. Meanwhile, the hunt for the rapist sets everyone on edge and leads to a succession of poor choices that drive this thriller to its stunning conclusion.
All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker
The beautiful, deadly Gretchen Lowell puts the psycho firmly in psychological thriller in Heartsick. Portland detective Archie Sheridan spent a decade chasing a therapist-turned–serial killer, only to be captured and then tortured by her for 10 days. Now, as addicted to her as he is to painkillers, and unable to get either of his addictions off his mind for long, he visits her weekly in prison. Watching a serial killer play on a detective’s neuroses like she was playing a banjo is the key to this whip-smart thriller that has drawn comparisons to The Silence of the Lambs
