Series: #2 in the Dr. Peter Zak Series
Publication Date: 2001
Challenges: Medical Mystery 2008 Challenge #2
Dr. Peter Zak is a psychologist who works at The Pearce Psychiatric Center. He is the one who discovers the body of one his colleagues and her troubled teenage daughter holding the gun. His efforts to help the daughter and to find the truth about his friend’s death are an interesting and quick read. This second in the series definitely held my attention and kept me turning the pages. A few of my guesses as I was reading turned out to be correct, but a few ended up being red herrings.
I enjoy this psychological thriller type of book. G.H. Ephron is actually the team of Hallie Ephron and Dr. Donald Davidoff. I’ll be continuing with this series. The recurring characters and their struggles with their own issues takes a bit of a back seat to the current mystery in this one, but the continuation of their stories is well done along the way.
