Award-winner William Deverell proves that when you mess with a psychiatrist ' s mind, anything can happen
Psychiatrist Dr. Tim Dare's life is falling apart: his wife has just left him, he's being hauled before a disciplinary committee, and now someone's threatening to kill him
In his gripping new novel, Mind Games , William Deverell returns to the intriguing territory of the law and lawyers and of human psychology and motivation, and he does so in familiar Deverell surroundings: the streets, courtrooms, and waters of Vancouver.
Dr. Tim Dare is a forensic psychiatrist whose life is in a mess: his wife has just left him to find herself; his mother is being sued for libel by a small-town mayor over a mystery novel; he's been made the monitor of a man just out of psychiatric hospital, a man he considers a psychopathic murderer; he's being hauled before a disciplinary committee for "misplacing" a file; one of his patients is "transferring" feelings to him rather too romantically; and now someone's threatening to kill him. He can't even get into an elevator without falling apart. No wonder he thinks he needs to see a shrink himself. Under the guidance of fellow psychiatrist Dr. Allison Epstein, Dare gradually learns how to face the demons within - and those in the real world that are really out to get him.
