Clinical psychologist Dr Emma-Jane Glass falls for her captor when the roles of client and therapist are reversed in a psychologically layered story of revenge and grief. Is it a case of Stockholm Syndrome, or something else?
When Dr Emma-Jane Glass’ interview on local radio is deemed to be sympathetic towards a mother’s actions to kill herself and young child, Drew Rogers hatches a plan to teach the psychologist a thing or two about being left behind as a spouse. Abducted and held captive in an empty property, Dr Glass swaps places in the psychologist’s chair.
Drew puts the motivation of his wife’s actions down to his extra-marital affairs, but then the sordid truth behind his family’s disappearance is revealed.
Hard-hitting and emotional, Dr Glass is the first novel in the Glass Minds Series from the author of Rachel’s Garden, The Entrepreneur, Willow Weeps and Rosie Shadow.
Dr. Glass by Louise Worthington is a disturbing, psychological thriller that kept me up pretty late. I did have to take breaks because this is a very psychological thriller. This author knows how to get inside a reader’s mind. It could be pretty intense for some people, so if you are easily triggered, I would tread a little lightly.
The characters were intriguing. So many were so morally off, that it was hard to love any of them. But, each one was so richly developed and that is all that matters.
This is not a super happy book. This is a deep and twisted thriller that will make you think. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to fans of this genre.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Louise is the author of the psychological thrillers Rachel’s Garden, Willow Weeps, the Entrepreneur, and the horror novel, Rosie Shadow, book one in the Black Tongue Series.
Born in Cheshire, England, Louise studied literature at the University of Essex. As a teenager she read until the small hours, enjoying the darker worlds conjured by Stephen King and Daphne du Maurier.
When Louise isn’t reading or writing, you’ll most likely find her outside enjoying the Shropshire countryside with her husband or messing about with her daughter, and furry and feathered friends.
