The Perfect Patient

Luana Lewis

What a read! I was swallowed up from start to the very end and I could not put it down for love nor money… A captivating, spine-tingling, twisty read that is still sat in my brain and still leaving me reeling.’ @bookreviewercakemaker, 5 stars

As I walk into my therapist’s office, I’m finally ready to answer the question on everyone’s lips… Am I a murderer?

It’s been six months since I woke up next to the body of the man I’d chatted to in a bar the night before. I still remember the metallic scent of his blood, the stillness of the room, and the panic that rose in my throat when I realised he was dead.

I remember him buying cocktails. We talked. We went up to my room. And then… nothing. But I know I didn’t kill him.

Now, as my whole world is picked apart by the police, the only hope I have of clearing my name is with my therapist, Dr Tara Black. As soon as we meet, I feel at peace. Her kind, dark eyes make me want to talk for hours, and she tells me she can help me access my memories of that night. But it soon becomes clear there is more to my past than even I remember…

Why does a flicker of recognition cross her face as I talk about the crime scene? And why do my parents look scared when I tell them I discussed my childhood with Dr Black?

Did I put my trust in the wrong person?

And how far will I have to go, to prove I’m innocent?

This absolutely gripping psychological thriller will have you hooked from the very first page to the last jaw-dropping twist. Perfect for fans of The Housemaid, The Girl on the Train and The Perfect Marriage.
