Tom Fortez is a psychiatrist with a succesful private practice and a loving wife and daughter. He’s held in high esteem at the prestigious psychiatric hospital and on the national book-and-lecture circuit. One of his most complex patients is Mike Browning, a brilliant but disturbed young man who has begun to exhibit violent delusions directed at the employees of the insurance company from which he was recently fired. He’s particularly focused on a young woman who spurned his advances, and he’s made statements about her in his therapy sessions that make Tom concerned for her safety.
Tom is struggling to decide whether to breach the confidentiality of his patient (thus thwarting his efforts at treatment) by going to the police when Browning goes missing. And then the woman in question is found raped and murdered in her apartment complex.
Tom immediately goes to the police to report what he knows, and suddenly finds himself in the headlines, the target of scorn and anger throughout the community. The nightmare only gets worse when Browning takes hostages at the insurance company. As Tom investigates on his own he finds clues that Browning may not have committed the rape and murder, and he must hurry to solve the murder and stop Browning from killing any hostages before time runs out.
