His attitudes are evolving, though I'm told this is not unusual for a sociopath, out of general population. He is however responding to inquires re: other previously unclaimed victims. Nothing definitive yet. His memories are shaped by his perception of himself, and he's had plenty of time to think.
Many updates in the lives of the characters, some very serious and deeply personal. I'll see to what extent I can share these moments. As for the hospitals, same old thing- everyone involved got raises and promotions. But a grand jury is still possible! Spread the word on the book and maybe we can finally get one. And finally of course there is the film scheduled for 2020, optioned by Darren Aronofsky, of whom I'm a huge fan, with Eddie Redmayne and Jessica Chastain currently attached, which should be excellent! Thanks for the great question Carolyn! (less)

Goodreads and Amazon reviews

I was asked recently about what the folks who have enjoyed my books might do to spread the word about them and share with others. One thing you can do is take 2 minutes to post a review on Amazon- even just a star rating and an emoji does the trick. Turns out, that matters- and it also turns out there are people who trash books with 1 star, but haven't even read the book (they're just looking to b Read more of this blog post »

"Wonderfully written book, from which I’ve leaned a lot about a topic I’ve heard quite a bit about from the pharma perspective but knew little about. In addition to being very informative, the human perspective gives it a very special touch. Thank you" Read more of this review »
