Overview

Pamela Jacoby is a young cop desperately trying to overcome years of sexual abuse. Her new therapist believes he can help her through "complementary neuroses therapy" in which a patient is paired with another suffering from opposite neuroses. When Jacoby is paired with Mac Graham, the therapy works better than expected, and the two fall in love.

When they attempt to consummate their relationship, Jacoby has a major psychotic breakdown, and runs from Mac in terror. The next day, Mac is found viciously slaughtered in his bed. Jacoby is the prime suspect . . .and only one person believes her innocence.

Her boss, Police Captain Amanda Grant, is unable to believe that her brightest rookie is capable of cold-blooded murder. Jacoby and Grant enter a desperate race to clear Jacoby's name and capture a psychopathic killer before Jacoby is locked up for life.

With gripping suspense, extraordinary plot twists and riveting terror, this novel matches the hear-pounding tradition of Dorothy Uhnak and the intrigue of Scott Turow. A psychological police thriller guaranteed to keep listeners guessing and guessing again!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Rookie police officer Pamela Jacoby has been in therapy since her father, also a cop, was killed in the line of duty. Her obsessive feelings about him and his death are overwhelming, and she suffers paralyzing anxiety attacks whenever she attempts intimacy with anyone. Her therapist suggests a new drug regimen just as she has begun a tentative but promising relationship with Graham MacKenzie. After their first attempt at sex, MacKenzie is found bizarrely murdered and Pamela snaps. The ensuing investigation weaves through an intricate maze of law and psychotherapy with steadily mounting tension to a cleverly crafted conclusion. Though not for the squeamish, this compelling first novel is a worthy addition to the current spate of legal/psychological thrillers. Recommended for most collections.
