Book Review: The Silent Patient

Alicia is the title of this novel, "the silent patient." She murdered her husband and has not spoken since, not even to defend herself in court. As such, she has been ordered into a psych hospital to undergo treatment. Theo, our protagonist in this tale, just so happens to be a psychotherapist--and one that took on the job at the very hospital that Alicia is in, specifically to treat Alicia. So he can help her to see clearly. The rest of the novel follows these two as Theo tries to help Alicia come to terms with her husband's death--and her part in it--and deals with his own marital problems.

Book Review: Pauper King

In this dark murder mystery, Marlowe brings our fairytales into a whole new light. All residing in the same world, the stories we were told as children are not quite what they seem... In this world, Snow White, Goldilocks, Rapunzel, Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, all are recreated into something that the stories hadn't told us. A serial killer has been on a rampage in this world, destroying all that is good. Johannes--the former King--and his friends must find the killer and bring him--or her--to justice before the work is done. Luckily, they have clues to help them along the way. It seems that the killer is counting down from 10, meaning that Johannes and his crew know how many are left to save.

As the past finally catches up to the present, Wynter's life suddenly takes a nosedive as an outbreak of contagious early-onset dementia floods the world. Wynter must battle both the contagion as well as her paranoia--as inside her head, Magnus' voice preaches his Testament and condemns the pleasures of the outside world--if she is to survive and bring an end to the pandemic.
