The bestselling novels of 2019 (so far)

Debut novelists swept fiction sales in the first half of 2019.

4. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

In The Silent Patient, Alicia Berenson shoots her husband five times after he comes home late from a photo shoot – and then goes mute, refusing to say a single word to anyone. A criminal psychotherapist is determined to solve the case – but how can he get her to talk? Alex Michaelides is the fourth debut novelist on our list, but his relative newness didn’t affect his book’s glowing reviews: “The Silent Patient may be a first novel, but it has the pace and finesse of a master,” praises the BBC.
