This is the first book I have read by Ablow but it was good and it kept me on pins and needles. I did not figure it out until he told me the plot. It was complex. For that reason alone I give it a 10 it is hard to fool Mother Sandi LOL. NE way for some reason I pictured Clevenger the main character as Monk. It is well worth your time to read if you like this genre.

Another intriguing mystery/thriller from forensic psychiatrist Ablow. In this one, Frank Clevenger is up against a unique mystery with a bit of a Christie-esque twist thrown in. Enjoyably fast-paced.

Liked this one a lot! It keeps a good pace going on every page and written to keep you interested all the way through without unnecessary descriptions or sex encounters, just a good suspense/thriller

This is a thankfully fast reading but mediocre murder mystery.

Dr. John Snow, a brilliant aerospace engineer and inventor on the verge of undergoing radical neurosurgery to correct debilitating lifelong seizures, is found shot outside the hospital an hour before the procedure. Boston detective Mike Coady calls in Clevenger when it is indeterminate as to whether this was a case of suicide or murder.

Snow was on the verge of a breakthrough in stealth missile technology which would have provided a huge financial windfall for his company. The unhappily married Snow was being inspired in his thought processes by his mistress who is also married, Grace Baxter. Apparently Snow's surgery to be performed by accomplished neurosurgeon Dr. Jet Heller, had the potential to cause selective amnesia as a byproduct. Snow would lose the memories of all those that had a part in his life, family and lover included.

Fantastically Baxter herself was found days after Snow's demise, apparently having taken her own life by slashing her wrists and neck. Questions arose as to whether she also might have been murdered.

Ablow conveniently bestowed upon all the peripheral characters in this book including Snow's wife, son and daughter, business partner, Baxter's husband George Reese and even Dr. Heller enough financial and emotional baggage to make them strong suspects in Snow's murder. Clevenger must wade through all the rhetoric to solve this improbable case. Ablow's conclusion is melodramatic and ridiculously farfetched.

Clevenger novel. Was an inventor murdered or did he commit suicide. Gripping story, as are all of Ablows' books. He is one a few really top-notch authors today.

Medical mysteries are not my favorite genre, but this one was different. Keith Ablow knows how to keep you on the edge of your chair. Forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger ventures into a dead man's dark past to unearth the truth. A mystery of passion and betrayal.

Keith Ablos is a new author for me and although his 1st book in the Frank Cleaver series is very dark and heavy, each book in the series gets better and better. This is the 5th in the series. Book is in very good condition.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a murder mystery about a man who was awaiting exploratory brain surgery and commits suicide outside of the hospital just hours before. Or was he murdered?

An hour before inventor John Snow is to undergo experimental brain surgery, he's discovered outside Massachusetts General Hospital, dead from a single bullet wound. Did he commit suicide as the police suspect---or was he murdered?
Forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger is about to find out. As he digs into Snow's complex past, he discovers a host of tortured relationships: The wife who can never forgive what Snow has done to their child and their marriage . . . The son who loathes him . . .
The beautiful mistress who loves him deeply but can never have him, The business partner intent on taking control of his inventions.
Whatever secret Snow took to his grave, it is casting a shadow of suspicion over the people who said they loved him. Now Clevenger
must venture into a dead man's dark past to unearth the truth---in an explosive mystery of passion and betrayal.
