The Red Room by Nicci French

At the request of London police, psychologist Kit Quinn agrees to evaluate Michael Doll, a sexual predator who slashes her face. As she recovers, Kit has horrible dreams of a red room. Months later, Doll is arrested for murder. As Doll's obsession with Kit escalates, Kit is gripped with a paralyzing fear that the killer isn't Doll--but someone close to her heart.

I have read most of Nicci French's books and loved them, however this one was not quite as interesting to me as the others. I found it quite slow and boring and it didn't have much of an ending.

The Red Room was full of suspense, unending twists and turns, and a great surprise ending. The reader and the main character are one and the same. I highly recommend this book and everything else this author has written. She get's better with each new book.

The Red Room is very good. In her characters, French taps into the human essence with skill and creativity. French is a new author for me and I'm glad I found her. I'm going to buy her other books as well.

I must admit that I am a big fan of Nicci French so I am sure it wouldn't matter what book she wrote I would read it and love it anyway. The Red Room is a great book and keeps you awake until the end.

The Stretton Green Police ask Market Hill Hospital for the Criminally Insane and Welborn Clinic Dr. Katherine ¿Kit¿ Quinn to evaluate Michael Doll. Parents have complained about the seemingly disturbed young male hanging around elementary schools and since he has a bit of a record for exposure, the police want a professional psychiatric opinion. However, in front of DI Furth, Michael smashes a mug and uses a sharp piece of glass to carve up Kit¿s face.

A few months later, Kit is out of the hospital having physically recovered except for a scar, but suffers nightmares from the assault. When DI Furth asks for her help with the murder investigation of a female teenager in which Michael is the prime suspect, a reluctant Kit agrees because she knows she must ¿humanize¿ her demon. Perhaps if Kit knew what is in store for her with this case, she would have said no and preferred to lived with her demonizing Doll.

THE RED ROOM is an exciting psychological thriller starring a great lead character psychologically suffering from the aftermath of the brutal attack by Michael. Kit knows she must confront the evil she has painted on the face of her attacker. Once she succeeds in de-demonizing her assailant, Kit still cannot let go of the case as her need to do the right thing propels her to continue to work on the investigation. It is her character that turns Nicci French¿s tale into an absorbing chiller that never allows the audience to catch their breath.
