The Patient

Teri Terry

‘Absolutely gripping and addictive… The twist!!! Seriously! I froze! I scared my family as I stared straight and gasped out loud – OMG!… Seriously made my jaw drop!… OMG! OMG! OMG!’ Goodreads reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I stole her perfect life. But is it going to cost me mine?

Standing outside Flora’s childhood home, its acres of sprawling gardens behind me, I try to calm my racing heart – my new heart. I’ve pored over every news article, spent hours looking at photos of her sparkling smile. I can’t imagine anyone hurting someone so perfect. But the ache of the scar down my chest reminds me – her murder saved my life.

All I want to do is thank Flora’s family for giving me this small miracle of a chance to live again. I’ll pay my respects and then disappear from their lives forever.

Instead, I’m surprised when they welcome me in warmly, tears shining in their eyes. Soon, her mother is showering me with gifts, and bags of Flora’s beautiful designer clothes. It all feels too much, almost like I’m stealing Flora’s old life too. Then again, after everything I’ve been through, a part of me thinks I deserve this…

But as I get closer to her life, the more questions I have about her death. Then my stomach lurches when I hear that someone else close to her has been attacked. How is that possible, when Flora’s killer is meant to be behind bars?

I owe it to Flora to find out the truth, but can I work it out in time? Has this second chance really saved me – or will it cost me everything?

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night. If you loved The Silent Patient, The Housemaid and The Doctor’s Wife, you won’t want to miss this.
