I’m a therapist, and I work with the most dangerous patients.
I’ve seen it all… A boy who planned to be the next school shooter. A patient with OCD whose loved ones really did suffer every time he missed a ritual. A choir boy who claimed he was being molested — not by a priest — but by God Himself. A patient with PTSD who gave me nightmares. A husband and wife who accused each other of abuse, and only one of them was telling the truth.
And how could I ever forget, Patient #220.
The problem is, my patients have a habit of dying. Sometimes I wonder if I’m the common denominator. Or maybe that’s just the cost of taking on exceptionally broken clients.
Either way, I’ll never stop trying to help.
In this short story, we follow Dr. Harper’s experiences with six of his most notorious patients. From a student who has all the signs of being the next school shooter to a suspicious family, these ‘patient files’ literally kept me up at night trying to get through a couple of pages despite my busy holidays schedule — this book is definitely unputdownable.
I found out about this book from my book club and I got intrigued because most of my co-members who have read it really said that it was worth the read. So I honestly went into this without knowing anything about it except for what the title says.
Now that I’ve read it, all I can say that it really is worth the read and deserves more hype. It’s confusing how I find it both creepy and funny. The therapist clearly has issues of his own and his patients are honestly top of the line crazy. It’s not something I read about often and I really enjoyed the stories!
I’m so excited to read the next books in this series. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a quick psychological thriller read.
