good read, ending was certainly different not what I had expected.
This was a fast read, given the length of the book.

If you're looking for intellectual stimulation, this is not the book for you. It offers a quick, breezy mystery to distract you from life for a few hours.
Another good fast read from this mystery series, interesting characters, with Dr. Zak, a forensic psychologist as the leading character. Start the series with "Amnesia" to know the story line.
A nice, engrossing page turner - bummer someone had do die. But that's most of mystery, right?

Hallie Ephron and forensic neuropsychologist Donald Davidof are co-authors of the Dr. Peter Zak medical/psychological mysteries. They write under the shared pseudonum G.H. Ephron. The character of Dr. Zak is based loosely on Don, who runs a unit at the McLean, Harvard's psychiatric hospital, and often consults as an expert witness for the defense in criminal cases.
