I enjoyed this murder mystery at a Psych Hospital. I had my suspicions for who was responsible but the story was more complex than initially thought. At the end there is a lot of info and I wasn't too sure if the book was going to be wrapped up nicely, but it was. I have not read any other books by this author and it seems that these characters have met each other in a previous book.
This is the second in a series written by two authors. It is similar to Patricia Cornwall or Kathy Reichs or Jonathan Kellerman. Yet, the plot development is different. Not intending to sound "super" educated, the wording is a bit more sophisticated, yeilding a more interesting read. This book was published on 2001. One of those accidental finds.
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.More about G.H.
