Originally admitted to the hospital as a child, the man has no known diagnosis. Every person who has attempted to treat him has been driven to madness or suicide. Parker, brilliant and overconfident, takes it upon himself to discover what ails this mystery patient and finally cure him. But things quickly spiral out of control ... Fans of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes and Paul Tremblay's The Cabin at the End of the World will be riveted by Jasper DeWitt's astonishing debut. PRAISE FOR THE PATIENT: "A stunning debut! DeWitt's The Patient is a thrilling, compulsive page-turner that will appeal to fans of F. Paul Wilson, Sarah Pinborough, and Alex Michaelides." Brian Keene, bestselling author and World Horror Grandmaster Award winner "'Insidious evil' is such an overused term, but there is no other way to describe what prowls the hallways of this riveting novella. A compulsive read I devoured in one day. And the ending ... it still haunts me." F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling creator of the Repairman Jack series "The Patient is a fascinating and frightening read that comes at you like the monster under your bed." Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A bone chiller.” Library Journal
“A narrative of slowly building horror that will grip the reader with a continuous set of shivers.” New York Journal of Books
“Edoardo Ballerini gives this horror novella a clear, smooth narration…[and] combination of eerie tone and perfect timing, which bring this novella to life. The horror blends well with Ballerini’s vocal choices for the main character, Dr. Parker. Ballerini’s cool, calm delivery contrasts well with the chilling elements of the story.” AudioFile
