From the acclaimed author of The Evening Spider and The Broken Teaglass comes this psychological thriller about the murder of a psychologist in a quiet New England town and his former patient whose unreliable thread will keep readers guessing until the shocking end.
I hear myself whispering. Not again. Not again.
Why did I ever come back here? Surely because of you. Because I thought of something IA??d always meant to tell you. Because you were the only one I ever really wanted to tell it toA?¦
Therapist Dr. Mark Fabian is deadA??bludgeoned in his office.
But that doesnA??t stop former patient Nadine Raines from talking to himA??in her head. Why did she come back to her hometown after so many years away? Everyone here thinks sheA??s crazy. And she has to admitA??they might have good reason to think so. She committed a shockingly violent act when she was sixteen, and has never really been able to explain that dark impulseA??even to Fabian. Now that FabianA??s dead, why is she still trying?
Meanwhile, as Detective Henry Peacher investigates FabianA??s death, he discovers that shortly before he died, Fabian pulled the files of two former patients. One was of Nadine Raines, one of HenryA??s former high school classmates. Henry still remembers the disturbing attack on a teacher that marked Nadine as a deeply troubled teen.
More shockingly, the other file was of Johnny Streeter, who is now serving a life sentence for a mass shooting five years ago. The shooting devastated the town and everyoneA??including Henry, who is uncomfortable with the A??heroA? status the tragedy afforded himA??is ready to move on. But the appearance of his file brings up new questions. Maybe there is a decades-old connection between Nadine and Streeter. And maybe that somehow explains what Nadine is doing in FabianA??s office nearly twenty years after being his patient. Or how Fabian ended up dead two days after her return. Or why Nadine has fled town once again.
But as Nadine and Henry head toward a confrontation, both will discover that the secrets of peopleA??s hearts are rarely simple, andA??even in the hidden depths of a psychologistA??s filesA??rarely as they appear.
