Karl Jommers is a straight-shooting therapist committed to helping blue-collar men overcome their reluctance to seek counseling, a mission instilled in him after the suicide of his steelworker father.
After a cop is set up to be shot, Jommers must evaluate the two police officers involved. They both offer conflicting accounts, but neither is lying. Their divergent perspectives are blurred by their personal anxieties and politics. Where one sees acts of local corruption, the other envisions a government conspiracy that includes covert dispersion of anxiogenic chemicals.
Jommers methodically tries to disentangle the discordance, but is faced with a quandary. He can't square his patients' differing views without first discerning the truth of what happened. But stepping outside his domain to investigate may jeopardize his faltering practice and possibly his life.

As he labors to clear the angst-fogged lenses of others, he is forced to question the clarity of his own perception.


I wasn't sure how this book would go, but something told me it might be interesting, and it was!  part mystery, part thriller, and part take on the human condition, it's fast pace will keep you rapidily turning the pages by chaprter 2! The book tood a solid look at how not only trauma can alter a person's thinking and actions, but how not everyone is suited for the same job. People react differently, an sometimes what you see them doing is not the truth. It's an interesting psychological study of both crime and victims, and if you love mystery and crime fiction, not one to be missed!
