Editorial Reviews

Review

The Patient pulls you in by the heartstrings, plays them like a symphony, then careens toward the surprise finale like a skydiver without a chute.” —August Norman, author of Come and Get Me

“Steena Holmes has returned with another compelling page-turner. [A]n all-encompassing journey through the dark side of the human psyche, The Patient is a mind-bending psychological thriller that will leave readers on edge and gasping for breath right up to the final shocking twist. Brilliant!” —Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Not a Sound

“A therapist with a serial-killer patient is at the heart of Steena Holmes’ latest, The Patient. Holmes starts with a bang, then builds the action steadily, a gradual unfolding of secrets and truths that will have you constantly rethinking who is the killer. A brilliant psychological thriller that will mess with your mind.” —Kimberly Belle, USA Today bestselling author of Dear Wife

“Gorgeously disturbing and endlessly surprising—an intense, thought-provoking, and riveting psychological puzzle of mind games. The Patient proves Steena Holmes’s infinite ability to create a taut, smart, and darkly captivating story. A psychiatrist with a serial killer as a patient—but which one? Terrific—and irresistible.” —Hank Phillippi Ryan, nationally bestselling author of The Murder List

“Steena Holmes has created something eerily new and tantalizing using her characteristically captivating style and sharply honed craft. The Patient is a macabre fairy tale where fantasy is distorted by the unforgiving looking glass of reality. This thriller invites readers into a world of mystery, murder and love that will hook them until the very last page.” —Amber Cowie, bestselling author of Rapid Falls

“Steena Holmes dazzles in The Patient, an emotional thriller that takes readers on one hell of a roller coaster ride as a therapist desperately searches for a serial killer among her patients. An exhilarating read, with an ending that will leave you gasping for breath.” —Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, bestselling authors of The Two Lila Bennetts
