In a small town, people don't expect a lot of excitement or anything beyond normal troubles.
Jared, a 17-year-old is found hoarding rifles and threatening to shoot his senior high school class. He rants about the government who want to kill him, he's paranoid in thinking that he's being invaded by a demon, and he waffles between murder and suicide to protect everyone from himself.

The only problem with that scenario is that Jared is a really good kid... has loving parents, goes to church regularly

I have to say 'This book took me by suprise'.  The title gave little away about the book, in accordance to what the book was actually about.  This was a novel about minds.  Far from what I expected.  I think this book even played mind games with me, as I tried to figure out where each character was going.

It starts with a teen (Jared) and a container load of guns, a fear of the government out to kill him, and an idea to mass shoot the kids at school.  The problem comes when they try to find him g

A Psychologically Rich and Exciting Novel from a Great Writer
Psychologist Ed Northrup has a tremendous amount on his plate: a formerly model student who has a shed with nine rifles and bomb-making materials, an old friend whose been a pillar of the Montana community but has now come to a very dark place, and a heap of sticky situations with law enforcement, including one with his girlfriend, officer Andi Pelton. Simply put, Nobody’s Safe Here (Monastery Valley Book 2) by Bill Percy is a terrific

Not bad for a psychologist

Being in the trade, the mysterious elements mostly were right at the top of my list-- red herrings for most readers, diagnostic hypotheses for the forensic psychologist. Percy knows his stuff well enough so his psychologist is good, but not too good. And Percy surrounds him with a pleasing cast of friends, sidekicks, advisors, enemy, family, lover. Some are a tad too cheesy to be true, but for the most part, the people and plot piece together well. And the two tragic fi

A new author to follow

I really enjoyed this book. Liked the characters, various plots and the eventual outcome. Also, that since I had never read this author before, gave some background info. on the characters. Dr. helps kid who is sick, finds out what is wrong. Had a relationship w/a cop, has a teenage adopted daughter. Looking forward to reading this authors series, from the beginning.

Nobody’s Safe Here

Fantastic read. Seems to be the psychologist’s work is never done. Working on helping three patients (which are also friends) after his normal patients, raising a teenage daughter and having a girlfriend who is a cop, makes for long days and nights. Definitely a must read

A good read

This book and the previous one, Monastery Valley, are well written psychological legal stories. The details feel right and the story draws you in. The psychologist, his deputy girlfriend and his daughter are compelling characters. Well done, sir.
