Hot-shot police consultant and renowned psychologist Dr. Daniel Rinaldi is in the spotlight once again, this time the good doctor is a the center of a murder investigation involving his patient --- the mysterious Kevin Merrick.

Minutes following their last session, Rinaldi enters the office garage and finds an assaulted and dying Kevin lying beside his car. Rinaldi’s initial assumption is that Kevin was a random victim, until he realizes that Kevin has switched the doctor’s jacket for his own. Lately, Kevin had began to mirror Dr. Rinaldi’s mannerisms; he adopted glasses similar to Rinaldi’s, when his vision was normal, he grew a beard shaped like the doctor’s and he began to wear the same styles and brands that Rinaldi wore. It must have been a case of mistaken identity, with the doctor as the intended victim.

When the police discover that Kevin Merrick is really Kevin Wingfield, the son of a billionaire, the ensuing confusion and continuing threats directed at the doctor, force Rinaldi to conduct his own investigation. Can Rinaldi identify the killer in time to save his own life?

In Dr. Daniel Rinaldi, Palumbo has created a humble, unconventional, wise-cracking, bad-ass psychologist who readers won’t mind hanging out with. A crime victim who specializes in treating traumatized crime victims, Rinaldi is a poster-boy for the boy from the hood who makes good. Readers will look forward to future stories starring the notorious psychologist, police consultant, and former pugilist. Rinaldi promises to have as much excitement and adventure in his private life-- his best friend and potential sidekick is schizophrenic. Readers will enjoy going along for the ride as Rinaldi uses both his wits and his fists to solve crimes.
