How far would you go to protect your reputation?
An ex-football player is savagely murdered. A National Ballet dancer inexplicably commits suicide. The only link between the two deaths is Dr. Roger Peterson, a famous psychiatrist and bestselling author.
Toronto PI Samantha McNamara can't accept that her childhood friend manipulated the emotionally fragile dancer into committing suicide or that he's capable of murder. But the victim's schizophrenic wife is Roger's lover and patient. And her husband intended to go public with a complaint that would destroy the doctor's life.
When Sam's fiancé, former police inspector Reece Hash, receives a troubling suicide letter from the ballerina, they realize that Roger's unethical conduct could be the symptom of a deeply disturbed mind. Or the doctor has unwittingly become a pawn in a killer's deadly game. As the pieces slowly fall into place, Sam and Reece are plunged into a terrifying nightmare. Their only chance of survival is to outwit a psychopath whose greatest pleasure is the game.
The rules are simple: trust no one, believe nothing, and stay alive.

A real page turner!
I really enjoyed this book! It was one that had me
guessing till the very end. Of course, there was a character I wanted to be guilty, but I didn't get my wish & was totally surprised at the end.
One of the best I've read in a long time & all without smarmy sex to fill the pages...I so despise all that graphic sex so many novels seem to include these days. I don't remember any dirty language either, which just shows you, if you write a good story, you don't need all that crap! Great author that I'll be watching for further books from!
