The shocking, true story of a successful and savvy young woman who was scammed in an elaborate con by a man she had grown to trust absolutelyher own therapist.
Emmy-noininated writer Miller was betrayed, and bilked by the most insidious character possible: her therapist. She had everything going for her, including money and professional acclaim. But she also had an underlying depression that haunted her daily. Friends suggested therapy, but Jennifer, the daughter of a shrink, was convinced that she was beyond help. Then she met Dr. David Cohen, and discovered something worse than depression. This mesmerizing story resolves itself with Miller in control of her life, but not before she succumbs to despair. The power of this memoir is its novel-like readability and its awful personal revelation of betrayal.

It was around five in the afternoon. I'd been in Beverly Hills meeting with my literary agent and was driving north up Coldwater Canyon toward the valley and home. I called my phone machine to check my messages. There was just one.
It was from the private detective. He wanted me to call him.
I quickly dialed his number. "Mr. Hanks, it's Jennifer Miller."
"I found David," he answered abruptly. "He's dead."
I pulled over to the side of the road. I was numb, shaking, yet it was not totally a shock. After all, wasn't it my fault?
The detective continued, "They're investigating it as a homicide."

Jennifer's story was not only wonderfully written but continued to captivate me from start to finish. It was a sincerely honest account of her unfortunate experience with an unethical and self-centered therapist. Unfortunately people like Jennifer's therapist thrive on the destruction and vulnerability of others. I think that it is heroic of Jennifer to put her experiences in print so that others who have experienced similar situations of 'authority abuse' can stop feeling so alone.
