Summary, etc.: Alicia Berenson's life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London's most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Alicia's refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety.

    Psychotherapist Theo Faber is fascinated by the case of Alicia Berenson, a noted artist who shot and killed her photographer husband six years ago, but who hasn't spoken since then. Convinced he can help her, Theo applies for a position at The Grove, the mental health facility where she is a patient. Hawkins voices Theo's endless internalizing about his childhood, personal life, and obsession with Alicia, alternating between hesitant and forthright speech. Alicia's actions at The Grove are an early clue to her personality, but the real Alicia becomes evident in diary entries that reveal her pre-murder activities and feelings, read in Brealey's quiet, wistful, young girl's voice. Throughout, Hawkins' speech ranges from forceful to sympathetic, angry to solicitous, while Brealey speaks more evenly. The engrossing narration by two Brits enhances a weaving, twisted psychological debut. An end-of-audio interview with the author offers insight into the writing of the novel.
