Publisher Description

It has been nearly a year since psychologist Daniel Rinaldi, a trauma expert who consults with the Pittsburgh Police, helped unravel a baffling murder, and now he finds himself drawn into another case. In the midst of a blistering summer heat wave, a daring bank robbery has gone horribly wrong, resulting in the deaths of all the hostages except one, Treva Williams, and Rinaldi is called in to treat the young woman.

However, what seemed a simple, straightforward robbery soon explodes into a series of events that plunge Rinaldi and the investigating officers, Sergeant Harry Polk and Detective Eleanor Lowrey, into a vortex of mistaken identity and kidnapping.

Meanwhile, thrown together by the demands of the case, Rinaldi and Eleanor deal with the growing attraction between them, even as Sergeant Polk, recently divorced, spirals into an alcohol-driven, self-destructive free fall.

All of this is played out against the gubernatorial campaign of Rinaldi’s former romantic rival, District Attorney Leland Sinclair. Suddenly, as death threats against Sinclair fuel a mounting frenzy of accusations and political maneuvering, Rinaldi finds himself facing the reality that the two cases might somehow be connected and, therefore, what he knows—or thinks he knows—makes him a target as well.

Fever Dream is the second book in the Daniel Rinaldi series, following Mirror Image.
