Dad reviewed Michael's book, Bleed for Me, last week.
This book is the precursor to it! He's hooked on the series now!
Synopsis: Joe O'Loughlin is in familiar territory-standing on a bridge high above a flooded gorge, trying to stop a distraught woman from jumping. "You don't understand," she whispers, and lets go. Joe is haunted by his failure to save the woman, until her teenage daughter finds him and reveals that her mother would never have committed suicide-not like that. She was terrified of heights.
What could have driven her to commit such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil?
Having devoted his career to repairing damaged minds, Joe must now confront an adversary who tears them apart. With pitch-perfect dialogue, believable characters, and astonishingly unpredictable plot twists, Shatteris guaranteed to keep even the most avid thriller readers riveted long into the night.
Review: Clinical Psychologist Joe O’Loughlin is making a switch from clinical work to university professor, and is called upon by the local police after his first day of teaching, to render help to a bridge jumper.

This is just the start of a group of unbelievable incidents that are terrifying a group of four women, who have been friends since high school. Did the first really commit suicide, or was she drawn to do so, from a fiendish element common to all of these women? Join Dr. Joe as he and his allies try to hash out why these things are happening. See how his life is torn apart trying to get answers not only for the victims’ families but also for his own family.
