Traveling Book Group – Every Fifteen Minutes

The Traveling Book Group is meeting Thursday, September 6 at 7:00. The group is discussing Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline. All are welcome to join the discussion. Copies of the book are available at the library.

From Library Journal: /* Starred Review */ “When Dr. Eric Parrish, longstanding chief of a successful psychiatric unit at a hospital outside of Philadelphia, responds to a routine emergency room consult and agrees to add a troubled teen to his private practice, he unwittingly makes a life-altering decision that could unravel everything that he values.

As Eric struggles to balance his workload with his recent separation and custody issues regarding his small daughter, he becomes the target of a ruthless sociopath hell-bent on destroying his reputation and his life. When a murder is committed and Eric’s troubled patient disappears, Eric takes matters into his own hands to protect a vulnerable client and himself. Soon he is hopelessly ensnared in a sociopath’s cat-and-mouse game and may not escape unscathed.

VERDICT In a nail-biting stand-alone with two heart-pounding climaxes and several pulse-racing twists, Scottoline (Keep Quiet; Betrayed) grabs her readers by the jugular and won’t let go. Readers who crave an action-packed psychological thriller should add it to their wish lists. [See Prepub Alert, 10/14/14.]— Mary Todd Chesnut, Northern Kentuckevery 15 minutesy Univ.
