    bluepiano: Books with different plots, but the protagonist of each is a psychiatrist who becomes entangled in the life of one of her patients. Both books are great fun.

A psycho thriller, a gothic update, a marriage dissection, a sociological look at glue-sniffing gang life, a path to madness. Alternating chapters that converge in a lulu of a trainride. ( )

I'd started this a while back then put it away, and when I went back to it, I didn't know why I didn't read it through the first time. I found the book a quick-paced, suspenseful read that I didn't want to put down until the end. ( )

Every crime has something of the dream about it. Crimes determined to take place engender all they need: victims, circumstances, pretexts, opportunities.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375700102, Paperback)

“One of my patients thinks somebody’s trying to kill him,” Aileen Macklin says to her husband over breakfast. A psychiatrist with a fading marriage, Aileen is haunted by the glue-sniffing lad who comes to her in a panic, begging to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital for protection. Gary Dunn clearly needs help: ravaged by his squalid existence, he is paralyzed with fear about a murder he has witnessed and convinced he may be next. Unfortunately for Gary, he may just be right. And unfortunately for Aileen, she becomes far more involved in his case than professional ethics would recommend.
