Max Parkman - autistic and whip-smart, emotionally fragile and aggressive - is perfect in his mother's eyes. Until he's accused of murder. Attorney Danielle Parkman knows her teenage son Max's behavior has been getting worse - using drugs and lashing out. But she can't accept the diagnosis she receives at a top-notch adolescent psychiatric facility that her son is deeply disturbed. Dangerous.

Until, that is, she finds Max, unconscious and bloodied, beside a patient who has been brutally stabbed to death. Trapped in a world of doubt and fear, barred from contacting Max, Danielle clings to the belief that her son is innocent. But has she, too, lost touch with reality? Is her son really a killer? With the justice system bearing down on them, Danielle steels herself to discover the truth, no matter what it is. She'll do whatever it takes to find the killer and to save her son from being destroyed by a system that's all too eager to convict him.

    " The very last little tid-bit of this book pushed it from two to two and and a half stars. Everything was wrapping up nicely, then the author throws in one last little jab that made it so much better! It would have been just kind of cheesy otherwise. It was like an episode of Law & Order in book form. Great way to end a suspense type story. I enjoyed the book for the most part. I did not like the character Danielle. I get that she was doing everything she could for her kid, and in the end, it of course paid off, but she was so annoying! I wanted to slap her for being so stupid and careless. Her character was totally unbelievable. The other small thing that bothered me was the "romance." *eye roll* They hook-up one time and are now soul-mates? Dumb. I understand that it was just a way to make the situation even more complicated, but it seemed unnecessary most of the time. I also thought that it was weird how they kept referring to "using the computer" like it's some sort of foreign object they were all unfamiliar with. Maybe if the book had been written 15 years earlier...that part seemed very unbelievable to me as well. "She was good with computers?" oohh....how vary rare...or not at all. "

    " This book was fantastic. Page turner not at all as you expect. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 2/14/2014

    " Ridiculous. And holy inconsistent verb tenses. Who edited this thing? There's a misplaced modifier within the first few pages. Obviously these are the things I focus on, but come on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rusty530 | 2/13/2014

    " I heart-wrenching book, and the mother's determination to do whatever is necessary to save her son. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie Nickel | 2/9/2014

    " While not entirely plausible, I enjoyed this book as the plot kept thickening and I needed to find out what would happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Pulley | 1/31/2014

    " Oh my goodness. This book.... What a rollercoaster. It started off as something out of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and then turned into this mystery that unravelled in ways I would never have imagined. It invoked real emotions in me - frustration, incredulity, and finally disgust and amazement at the scope of mental illnesses out there. It was horrifying, but I couldn't stop reading it. I had to force myself to read the last few pages, which were upsetting in the extreme. Incredibly well-written, incredibly disturbing...this book will stay with me for a long time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristie | 1/25/2014

    " Thought I knew where this book was going until it took a complete 180! Thank you Stephanie!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/13/2014

    " This book was a very good suspense thriller I'm so glad I read! I was honestly shocked by the whodunit and that's rare for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra Greenwood | 1/4/2014

    " This book kept me going- it was gripping. I did find it disturbing towards the end though - didn't leave me with a good feeling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/22/2013

    " Another book that did not go where I thought it would - that's all I am saying "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Hupp | 11/28/2013

    " Disturbing! I will be questioning possible child abuse in my head for a long time! "

    " What a great book, brought it into work so others could read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Athens | 11/13/2013

    " Wow. As a mom, this book rattled me. Made me think of all the vulnerabilities of our children. Great read. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sylvia McLaughlin | 11/6/2013

    " Wow! Totally not what I was expecting. Lots of twists and heart wrenching turns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daphne | 11/2/2013

    " Simply walking through Target and this jumped out at me. So glad I bought it! A page turner for sure!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 10/30/2013

    " While the book was engaging, there were certain things in it that were just too far fetched and disturbing. There were certain plot lines that didn't seem to be addressed at the end. I would recommend Defending Jacob rather than this. Similar story but much better novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela Alvey | 8/5/2013

    " This was a good quick read. It was somewhat unrealistic but still held my attention until the very end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 6/25/2013

    " This book was just ok. It seemed kind of far fetched to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 5/29/2013

    " This is not my kind of genre. As a mother, I just can't imagine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 3/2/2013

    " I would have given this four stars, but I thought it was unessasarily gruesome and it was a little hard to stomach the child cruelty the author goes into vivid detail about. Otherwise, it was a well written and interesting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justina Mott | 2/6/2013

    " i could definatley realte to this book. it was about teenage pregnancy and i am a preganent teen. i got ideas and tips of what to and what not to do from this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/15/2013

    " I didn't love her writing style, but the story was good, especially the last 100 pages. I do have to say though that I didn't like the lead character very much, and would have liked to have gotten to know Max better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mario | 10/29/2012

    " This book was interesting as readed on the back of it, at times the story becomes to fantastic. Good for a light read or for fanatics of police/law or investigation books. Somehow you'll keep reading as they are chapters that leave you waiting for the next part. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 7/2/2012

    " I loved this bok. Truly shows what a mother will do to protect her child.I read this book in 3 sittings. I could not put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 5/23/2012

    " This was a really good book that had me sucked in from the start. However, many of Danielle's actions left me SO angry. She broke the law so many times and it didn't bother her at all. I just wanted to slap her and I often found myself so mad I wasn't enjoying the book!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 4/19/2012

    " Very thrilling, intense, and emotional story. Will make you run and hug your kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lacey | 8/25/2011

    " This book hooked me and I had to finish to find out what happened. But overall pretty violent and horrible language. Not an uplifting read by any means. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Conover | 7/21/2011

    " The storyline was great, but imo the author is quite wordy and overly descriptive in many parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/29/2011

    " I loved it but I wouldn't recommend it for the faint at heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NNMarie | 6/17/2011

    " I actually give it a 4 1/2, but that's just me. I finished this book in a few hours, and I loved it. And also was appalled. But I loved it nonetheless. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mandy | 6/15/2011

    " Seriously disturbing. Hard to finish. Wish I hadn't read it. "

    " Slow start, but ended up being a good thriller! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bec | 6/8/2011

    " I started it thinking it may be a good read. Very hard plot to follow and not interesting. I gave up after 6 chapters "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bschulman87 | 6/5/2011

    " Very disturbing, but I couldn't put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolina | 6/5/2011

    " So, the mystery was good, but the mother was extremely irrational, overly-emotional and not a sympathetic character at all. The author tried to make the reader feel the frustration a mother of an autistic son may feel, however I ended up just feeling annoyed with the mom. Ugh! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 6/4/2011

    " PAGE TURNER--- read in 2 days at beach- my friends were giving me a hard time, because the book was with me the whole trip-- I didn't put it down. Not the best writing, but still interesting story.
    "

    " This book was very good. I liked it a lot, was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 5/31/2011

    " A mix of a muder mystery and a reflection of one woman's struggle with her son's various pysch disorders, this novel is fast paced and a good beach read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 5/29/2011

    " Really good book! Disturbing but good, unexpected ending. "
