Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159692196X, Paperback)A psychological mystery from the author of The God File and The Point of Fracture.
Joel Stabler kills his beloved brother Danny in what appears to be murder in the name of mercy. When Joel’s lawyers assign a psychologist to determine his sanity at the time of the shooting, the full story of the brothers’ past and long family history of mental illness begin to unfold.
Told entirely through Joel’s pre-trial interview sessions with Dr. Andrews, Blood and Circumstance takes on the argument of nature versus nurture. And as Joel responds to the doctor’s probing questions, he, in turn, begins to evaluate the doctor, stealing glimpses of his notes and speculating about his personal life. As the reader listens in on their conversations, it becomes less and less clear whom to trust, what is certain, or where truth and fact actually live.
With his signature prose and unwavering, close-up lens, Frank Turner Hollon’s latest achievement examines the uncertain search for identity through the criss-crossing paths of blood and circumstance.
