    The Halo Effect by M. J. Rose Dr. Morgan Snow is a sex therapist

    The Halo Effect by M. J. Rose
    Dr. Morgan Snow is a sex therapist and donates her time once a week to women at the prison. She also sees private patients. one who is writing a sex book and she now has a copy.
    Her boyfriend thinks something bad will happen to her once the book is published and the dr. has watched her leave one day and there is a man that follows her. Because the detective called her she rushed down the morgue to identify the woman who was now dead-one of the women who got out of prison and was to head back home to WV.
    Her divorce came through also after being married 15 years.
    Dr. Nina Butterfield is the owner and friend of hers.
    Her daughter, Dolcie is 12 and studying the summer at drama school.
    Detective Noah Jordain from the special victim unit is on the case of the woman murdered at the hotel.
    They have a serial killer on their hands, same MO.
    Morgan remembers her mother and her lifestyle with pain and anguish.
    From this point Chloe goes missing and more murders are committed.
    Things get a bit too mysterious/thriller/horror for me, this would make a great SUV for TV.

    Dr.Morgan Snow's work was delicate. As a sex therapist she has seen pretty much everything, but one patient stood out from the crowd. Cleo Thane, despite being a prostitute, managed to be as regal as her name, somehow retaining a purity that belied being a high priced call girl. Now, she wants to write a tell all book, but knowing it could prove dangerous; she asks Morgan to read it. Shortly thereafter, Cleo vanishes, and the book is perhaps the best clue Detective Noah Jordan has to find her before she becomes the latest victim of a serial killer with a twisted vision. Yet, turning it over violates certain rules, so Dr. Snow chooses to investigate for herself; but doing so makes her risk sharing her patient's fate. ........................ **** Intensely cold as the doctor's name, this book grips you by the throat. Although necessarily sensual, the writing is not overly lewd, given the subject matter. ****
