This one caught me with the twists and turns. Prisoner fixates on Dr Sylvia Strange and there are cascade aftermaths to the investigation, particularly when evenryone who gets close to Sylvia dies.

It was good and kept me reading and the multilayered misdirections were well done, nothing had one obvious motive, it was all a mess, rather like real life.

But it just felt a little unfinished, like there was more that could be told, not just as sequel but as part of that story, I didn't really connect with the characters and while I'm curious about reading more in this series I wouldn't be heartbroken to find that I couldn't get them. ( )

Psychologist Sylvia Strange works with Penitentiary of New Mexico inmates. Things start going down hill when she recommends Lucas Watson, a state senator's son convicted of manslaughter, be given a psych transfer instead of released on parole. Then, a man begins stalking Sylvia. Sylvia's friend Warden Rosie Sanchez asks her to help find a possible cannibal preying on the prison population. Next, Lucas escapes. As a prison riot adds to the chaos, it's up to Sylvia to determine where the body parts are going. She also has to determine if Lucas' paranoia is delusional or realistic. Plot twists, interesting characters with entangled backstories, and noir elements all combine to create a suspenseful, engrossing read. Dark Alchemy is the fifth and most recent Slyvia Strange novel.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804112975, Mass Market Paperback)

"[A] SUSPENSE-SOAKED THRILLER . . . A welcome addition to Patricia Cornwell territory, Lovett is a meticulously fine writer who offers both cold, clinical realism and sensitive insight."
--West Coast Review of Books
As a consultant to the New Mexico prison system, forensic psychiatrist
Dr. Sylvia Strange has probed the minds of some of the country's most disturbed and dangerous criminals. But nothing prepares her for the madness of Lucas Watson.
"[A] CHILLING TALE, PEPPERED WITH CONTINUOUS PLOT TURNS.--San Francisco Examiner
When Lucas escapes from the state penitentiary, he cooly and methodically begins to stalk Sylvia. Now, caught in a harrowing cat-and-mouse-game that only one of them can win, Sylvia must use all of her psychological insights and courage to stay one step ahead of a madman.
"DANGEROUS ATTACHMENTS continues to surprise and excite to the very end. An emotional, vivid thriller."
--Vincent Bugliosi
Author of Helter Skelter
"COMPELLING . . . NOT TO BE MISSED."
--Mostly Murder
