This was a very intense thriller which kept my interest throughout. I liked how Peter knew something was wrong and that Ed was somehow involved even if he didn't know exactly what was going on. I also liked the way the point of view switched from third person (Ed) to first person (Peter).

This was a great book! I read it in one evening, just couldn't go to bed. Definitely freaky. It helps if the reader has a basic understanding of mental health disorders, notably Borderline Personality DO, PTSD and co-morbid alcohol/drug dependance, and sociopathy. AS a mental health provider, it was an entertaining read for me; a look into the mind of a sociopath who has also started his descent into psychosis. This is a chiller to be sure. If you are in the profession, go ahead and read. You know we are already paranoid. Loved it!

This was my first by the author but WOW I'll be looking for more.

This was truly a good chiller thriller into the mind of a psychiatrist using drugs and really just losing it for love of a woman he didn't get and couldn't forget.

Psychiatrist Peter Grainger is struggling to get his life back on track. Traumatized by the accident that killed his wife, Beth, and unborn child, he returns to his work. Pulling the strings is Peters old friend from medical school, Dr. Ed Tyson. What Peter doesnt know is that Ed never got over Beth choosing Peter over him, and hes willing to go to any lengths to have his revenge. In this riveting psychological thriller, Atkins demonstrates his rare skill for creating passionate characters with deep set and fascinating motivations.
