Episode 72 - The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

107 minutes

This psychological thriller didn't so much thrill us as annoy and infuriate us. Diary entries read like screenplays, the writing is bland overall, and ultimately the framing and plot have major issues. How does this book have such good ratings and reviews? Thanks to Chris's partner Rebecca for recommending this and donating her copy to the show.

Content warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, we've got descriptions of abuse, assaults, break-ins, drug use, murder, and flagrant ethical violations in professional/client interaction.

Audio quality warning: A bad XLR cable caused some crackling/static on Paris's track towards the end of the episode. We did as much as we could to mitigate this, but it is still audible. Apologies!
