RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy psychological thrillers.
This complex, erotic novel of suspense introduces psychologist Dr. Daniel Rinaldi, a consultant for the Pittsburgh Police who specializes in treating traumatized victims of violent crime. Kevin Merrick is one of these patients, a fragile college student so desperate for a sense of identity that he has recently begun dressing and acting like Rinaldi. Before Daniel has a chance to work this through with his patient, he is stunned to find Kevin brutally murdered. Suspecting that he, not Kevin, had been the intended target, Rinaldi is determined to help find the killer. His journey takes him through a labyrinth of friends, colleagues, and lovers, any of whom may be the killer. And when Kevin’s identity as the estranged son of a biotech giant is revealed, the murder investigation turns into a national story—even as another person turns up dead.
