I enjoyed this entry in the Frank Clevenger series immensely! I especially appreciated the quick pacing and smart plot. Dr. Ablow does a fine job of keeping you guessing, creating compelling characters, examining their motives without dragging it out, He throws in some really interesting and ingenious diagnostic scenerios. It is the proverbial page-turner, and I did indeed stay up late into the night to finish it. Highly recommended.
This book is time well spent, and like myself, you'll likely learn a few things along the way. What could be better?
"Keith Ablow's setting is the darkest of all-the twists and turns of the human mind. COMPULSION is-pardon the obvious pun-compulsive reading. Great psychological suspense."--Harlan Coben, author of GONE FOR GOOD
"Frank Clevenger is a real original: a jeans-clad, black-turtleneck-wearing, head-shaven loner whose compassion for victims of violent crimes-and the perpetrators of those crimes-threatens to destroy him. Whether Clevenger is entirely fictional, or a reflection of his creator's dark side (Ablow is a practicing forensic psychiatrist) the upshot is the same: He's a brillant creation and this is a brillant nove."--Booklist (starred)
Burdened by his own psychological scars, brillant forensic psychiatrist Dr. Frank Clevenger has endured the most extreme twists of the human mind.
