Goodreads:  Meet Bryce Davison, a gifted psychologist who can heal any troubled mind—except his own. 

You see, Bryce’s life is falling apart. His marriage is crumbling. His insomnia brings only half-sleep and troubled dreams—visions of dark and buried memories he’d rather forget or ignore completely. And the new female patient in his psych ward just might be more trouble than he’s able to cope with. 

…and now he has a stalker. 

Somebody’s been watching Bryce for a long time. Somebody who knows his life inside and out—his fears, his regrets, his greatest longings and deepest despairs. Somebody with access to his most private places—his workplace, his home, his family…anywhere Bryce might have felt safe. 

They do their dirty work in the shadows… and they want Bryce Davison dead. 

So Bryce has got to get his life together. To save his patients. To save his family. To save his marriage…and his life. 

Because no matter how close Bryce gets to the deadly truth, the enigmatic stalker is always closer than he thinks. 

Kritters Thoughts:  Bryce Davison is a psychologist who specialities lie in those who are really battling mental illness, but he is usually one step removed from the patient instead coaching the therapist who work straight with the patient.  When strange occurrences start happening in his own life he starts to question everything.

This book was interesting because it was almost an insider look into a mental hospital but through the lenses of the therapists and doctors and not the patients.  The action is happening to the therapists and doctors which made this so different than books I have previously read that take place in this sort of setting.

The ending was completely foreshadowed, but I read right by the clues.  This is one of those books that you almost want to read again, just to see the clues that you missed and if you could have come to the conclusion faster.  I love these books that make me shake my head at myself!

This is the first in a series and I just might to keep my eyes peeled for book two to see where this will go.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
