Description

People connected to the most prestigious psychiatric center in New York are dying - and killing - for love, and the caring profession is in serious trouble. If former patient Raymond Cowles's death on Halloween is ruled a suicide, Dr. Clara Treadwell, Cowles's analyst of long ago and now the head of the psychiatric center, may well be liable for a whopping malpractice suit that would mark the end of her career. For Dr. Treadwell to be found innocent of contributing to Raymond's death, the Quality Assurance Committee she's carefully organized in the person of Jason Frank must find a way to clear her name. But if Raymond Cowles's death is ruled a homicide, April Woo has to find out who killed Dr. Treadwell's former patient...and why.As the cops and the analyst struggle to uncover the truth, ghosts emerge from the tortured pasts of the victim and his doctors - all still tormented years later by various kinds of illicit love. April Woo and her partner Detective-Sergeant Mike Sanchez are forced to face their own conflicts about loving mothers, clashing cultures, their futures in the department, and their deepening attraction to each other. As Jason searches through the old file on the victim for a clue to his death after a seemingly successful treatment, Jason too must confront the cost of loving, and of his hard-won integrity. Then Dr. Treadwell is injured in her office and a second unnatural death occurs in the very heart of the center. The murder brings Jason and April up against one of the most dangerous killers they've ever encountered, a man tired of waiting for justice to prevail.show more
