As a psychiatrist in a remote Maine town, Gus Young learns a lot of secrets. Some of them are deadly...
"...a masterpiece of psychological suspense." —Brian Shea, author of the Boston Crime Thriller series
Psychiatrist Gus Young didn’t always see patients in the back of a hardware store. Before he came to rural Maine, he was a man with a past—past successes, past scandals... and past enemies.
Now he lives in the woods, struggling with his memory, trying to reconcile with what little family he has left, and learning the secrets of his neighbors.
One of those secrets is getting people killed.
When Wanda Flynn turns up dead, the police are interested in a number of Gus’s patients. Gus has his own suspicions.
But when the evidence starts pointing in Gus’s direction, he must uncover who killed the troubled young woman or face the consequences. His investigation soon takes him into the dark underbelly of the otherwise sleepy town, into his own past failings, and into the brutal path of revenge.
Tom Saric, author of Indicted and Compromised, pens a twisting novel of psychological suspense, introducing a psychiatrist trying to save lives while battling his own demons. With sharp turns, Saric opens Gus’s case files, letting loose a bevy of reasons to kill, and to kill again.
