Overview

Psychologist Dr. Glenn Kahn, a recently-widowed expert in the treatment of split-personality disorder, is drawn into the investigation of the death of an autistic adolescent boy found floating in the swimming pool of a mental hospital. As the police investigation unfolds, it is suspected that a split personality in the institution is involved in the death. Simultaneously, while doing research on the treatment of psycho-emotional symptoms, Dr. Kahn discovers a reference that leads him to the work of a medieval monk who had uncovered the key that could open the lock to free people of such symptoms. This leads to the agonizing self-examination of a widowed shrink who refuses to accept what the fates have mercilessly delivered to him. Interweaving threads of fact and fiction, The Making of Ghosts is at once a murder mystery, a recipe book on decoding psychological symptoms and an historic treatise dating back to the Spanish Inquisition. Author Henry Kellerman is a 21st century cubist raconteur, a master of the psyche's prism distilling what one should do when life doesn't cooperate; he challenges fate and wages a fight against the unjust. Not a murder mystery, not a thriller, but a story filled with mystery and thrills

    Henry Kellerman's first novel, The Making of Ghosts is a taut



    Henry Kellerman's first novel, The Making of Ghosts is a taut psychological thriller that masterfully weaves multiple sub-plots which leaves the reader engaged until the very end.







    A young autistic patient in a psychiatric hospital is found murdered and his body moved. Detectives on the scene are baffled as to motive and suspects.







    With clues drying up, Detectives turn to Psychologist Glenn Kahn to help them solve the case. Dr. Kahn soon discovers that things are not as they seem. With his reputation on the line, Kahn must help solve this case by unlocking the mysteries of the human psyche.
