Following her success with The Cheater, Nancy Taylor Rosenberg returns to her most memorable character, Lily Forrester. Lily is a tough judge in Ventura County, California, who has overcome adversity and heartache to achieve a position of power to help those who can't help themselves. Like the current case before her: the sensational murder trial of a woman who tortured and killed her beautiful two-year-old son. Lily is determined to see justice done, but she's thrown for a loop when she receives word that her own daughter, Shana, months away from graduating from Stanford Law School, is on the verge of dropping out. Lily rushes north and what she discovers causes her to fear for her daughter's mental state. She must get back to the trial and decides that she will take Shana to a facility where they can evaluate her and, if needed, give her some counseling or medication. Which is when things go horribly awry. For the institution that Lily has chosen is far less interested in treating patients than it is in bilking the insurance companies out of extravagant fees...and they are less than scrupulous about patient's rights. Discovering the awful truth, Lily will have to summon all her intelligence and street smarts to find a way to free Shana. She will have to work fast, however, for there is someone at the facility who seems to have his own agenda separate from the institution. And Lily's daughter may be in danger of losing not only her sanity but her life. Download and start listening now!

    " The premise was good; however, the characters (Lily and her daughter Shanna) are over the top...prone to outlandish behavior, histeronics and very little self-worth (extremely codependent on men, any man for that matter). The FBI segment didn't even mesh with the storyline, just plopped in there to be able to incorporate the characters from her previous book. Very contrived. I also felt that the "suicide club" didn't relate at all to Alex's issues and found it difficult to believe he was the murderer in this seemingly unrelated storyline. Nancy Taylor Rosenberg has always been a favorite author of mine but she needs to retire these characters with this book and move on. "

    " Lily is a tough, and a bit abrupt when it comes to dealing with her daughter Shana. She does love her and is hard pressed to know how to help her when she beomes concerned enough to fly out to see her after hearing how distressed she is on the phone. Her concerns become magnified after seeing her daughter in person, and she makes a bad mistake in stopping in at a mental health hospital for what she hopes will be some medication to calm her daughter down. Her daughter was undeniably stressed and sleep deprived but did not deserve to be placed in a mental hospital and a very shady hospital at that. Lily thinks her daughter checked herself in, her daughter is told her mother committed her and the story takes off from there. Suspense, but not much of a mystery. "

    " The book gave me a whole new insight about mental hospitals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 8/29/2013

    " This is slow-moving at times, but it seems more realistic than other crime fiction/suspense type novels, so it held me. The story is a good one, and made better by the sense of reality. The characters are interesting and identifiable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally | 7/25/2013

    " Interesting premise, but shallow characters and contrived plot. "

    " Sometimes I wonder why I persist and finish books that I don't love. Hmmm. I had a great deal of trouble with the writing in this one - much of the dialogue seemed forced and unnatural. I think this is the last book by this author that I will try. Too bad. "
