The only forensic psychiatrist writing suspense, Keith
Ablow is being hailed as the heir to Thomas Harris.
Keith Ablow's novels delve deep into that dark and deadly
place that Ablow, one of the nation's leading forensic
psychiatrists, knows best: the psyche of a killer. Ablow
has explored the catacombs of the criminal mind to find out
what makes them tick, and he brings that expertise to his
new novel, a chilling and emotionally compelling story of
the lengths to which one man will go to leave his own life
In Murder Suicide, Ablow and his alter-ego, Dr. Frank
Clevenger, return to take on a murder case like no other.
John Snow is a brilliant inventor who has made millions
from his genius in aeronautics. He has everything a man
could desire: wealth, family, even a beautiful mistress.
But he also has a brain disease, a rare form of epilepsy,
that threatens his most valuable possession -- his mind.
Only one doctor may be able to cure it surgically, but at a
terrible cost, one that Snow reveals to no one: Snow will
have no memory whatsoever of his past - of its emotional
entanglements or its secrets. He will be abandoning
everyone he has ever known. But the night before he is
scheduled to undergo the operation, he is found near the
Massachusetts General Hospital, dead of a gunshot wound.
Did he commit suicide, as the police suspect - or was he
Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Frank Clevenger delves into
Snow's complex past and tortured relationships to unlock
the identity of Snow's killer: Was it the wife who can
never forgive what he's done to their child and their
marriage, the son who loathes him, the beautiful mistress
who loves him so deeply but can never have him, or the
business partner intent on taking control of his inventions?
Only Frank Clevenger can unlock the door to Snow's
startling past. And only Keith Ablow can take readers even
further into the mind of a killer.
