Naiche Decker, a woman with deep roots in the "old world" (aka around our century) workings such as 21st century medicine, technology, etc., is on a mission to kill as many Eternals as possible, and hopefully put an end to this war. She's already lost her mother and almost her entire military team on the frontlines--now she's given a chance to work with her best friend to go straight to the source and see if they can't discover the beginnings of the Eternal species. The only glitch is that not only is it a highly dangerous mission, but she also has to share the ship with Ricci, a man she's had some sort of tense relationship with since she was a rookie. Will their mission be successful? Or will the web of relationships get in the way?
The novel is divided into 3 parts, each following Tag as he goes on an adventure. The first part is dedicated to his life in the prison where he was born, the second to a kind of virtual family he finds after leaving the prison, and the third is when he ends up going back to the prison for something. Through it all, he is finding out who he is as a person, and what he wants in life.
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.
