Secrets From The Couch, the second in the Dr. Cory Cohen mystery series, offers an intimate view of a psychologist’s life. Readers are treated to a good dose of intrigue and suspense, and a sprinkle of romance in this fast paced who-dun-it.
Morgan Heller, a strait-laced patient running for District Attorney, is threatened by a midnight phone caller who knows her dirty secret—her fantasy of living as a prostitute—a secret shared only with her therapist. Morgan confronts Cory. Cory tries to dispel her patient’s fears. Right after the emergency session, Morgan vanishes.
As Cory wrestles with her patient’s disappearance, the security breach and the potential harmful effects on other patients, events escalate. A patient is blackmailed. Cory is stalked, and her quarters burgled forcing her to escape an unseen enemy and sending her on a spiraling trail of deceit, betrayal, blackmail and murder.
“A haunting tale of ambition and betrayal…a chilling read.
—Kris Neri, Agatha nominated author.
A terrific whodunit spun around the dynamics of psychotherapy. Secrets From The Couch would make a terrific film. —Maryanne Raphael, Editor, Writers World
Of interest not only to psychologists and patients but to mystery fans, Secrets From The Couch has all the elements of suspense and drama: a clever plot and interesting, well drawn characters.
