A Familiar Sight
This is a great psychological thriller that engrosses you from the very start. The book opens with Dr. Gretchen White, a consultant with Boston PD who finds her friend Lena, dead from an overdose. What is interesting about Dr. White is that she herself was suspected of killing her aunt when she was younger and is a self-admitted sociopath. She has little tolerance for empathy and has a love-hate relationship with the detective she has to work with who accused and believes her to have actually killed her aunt. The words that fly between these two makes it an interesting read alone.
Lena’s death just happens to be significant in that she was an attorney for the mob and she is involved in a high profile case of young Viola Kent, a 13-year old accused of murdering her wealthy, well-known mother, Claire. Before she dies, Lena leaves Dr. White with a message and file that leads her to believe that Viola is innocent and someone else has framed her. Thus begins the investigation and cat-mouse chase in this detective story.
This is a great page turner!
