When a former student bungles a murder investigation, clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin steps in to face a ruthless killer. A mother and her teenage daughter are found murdered in a remote farmhouse, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other posed like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her prince. Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, trading on Joe's reputation by calling himself the "Mindhunter," jeopardizes the police inquiry by leaking details to the media and stirring up public anger. With no shortage of suspects and tempers beginning to fray, Joe discovers a link between these murders and a series of brutal attacks where the men and women are choked unconscious and the letter "A" is carved into their foreheads. As the case becomes ever more complex, nothing is quite what it seems and soon Joe's fate, and that of those closest to him, become intertwined with a merciless, unpredictable killer.

"When a former student mishandles the investigation of a series of brutal murders, Joe O'Loughlin is forced--reluctantly--onto the case. Meanwhile, his estranged wife discovers she has cancer. Sean Barrett again lends his voice to Michael Robotham's series as the renowned psychologist finds himself juggling personal and professional issues with great difficulty. Robotham's plot is intensely cerebral, and Barrett's narration, while at times a bit slow, captures O'Loughlin's mental state. The conflicts and calculations of his mind take shape even when some of the supporting characters fall flat. While the novel can be appreciated on its own, those who have listened to previous series installments will likely reap the most from Book 8. J.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
