Author of Compulsion and Psychopath, and the only forensic psychiatrist writing suspense, Keith Ablow is being hailed as the heir to Thomas Harris

John Snow is a brilliant inventor who has made millions from his genius in aeronautics. He has everything a man could desire: wealth, family, even a beautiful mistress. But he also has a brain disease, a rare form of epilepsy, that threatens his most valuable possession—his mind. Only one doctor may be able to cure it surgically, but at a terrible cost, one that Snow reveals to no one: Snow will have no memory whatsoever of his past—of its emotional entanglements or its secrets. The night before he is to enter the hospital, he is murdered. Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Frank Clevenger delves into Snow's complex past and tortured relationships to unlock the identity of Snow's killer: Was it the wife who can never forgive what he's done to their child, the son who loathes him, the beautiful mistress who takes pleasure in inflicting emotional cruelty, or the business partner who helped him build his fortune?

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 2/6/2014

    " Finally, a mystery with a psychological probe that I wish for but almost never get. Those who will like this book the most are probably people more interested in solving the "why" aspect of a mystery rather than "who" did it. I'm going to check out what else he's written. "

    " I've seen Keith Ablow, M.D. on several TV shows but didn't know he was an author. This one keeps you guessing as to "who did it" and draws in a lot of his forensic psychiatry experience, but it was understandable. A different insight to the character's thinking and actions. "
