The Murderer’s Daughter by Jonathan Kellerman
Dr. Grace Blades. One of a kind psychologist treating her Haunted ones. Maybe because she was, or is, one of those Haunted ones.
Traumatic experiences starting as far back as she can remember. Unplanned, unwanted, and knowing she’s not like the two people who created her. Grace has learned to stay to herself, make herself unseen, and most importantly, she’s learned to keep her thoughts to herself. Then her mother kills her father before killing herself. In the system Grace bounces. From place to place she’s shuffled, until being adopted. During that time her intellect and knowledge base grows.
A sexual encounter shows up outside her office door using a different name than the one he provided the night before. There’s something going on with this guy. He leaves the appointment early and winds up dead. Now Grace has to decide if she’s going to let the cops handle it or if she’s going to do her own research. Not one to trust someone other than herself, her knowledge, and skill, Grace may have gotten more than she was planning on. But she is well prepared and you’ll see why I say so.
A thriller to say the least. This book opened up a new view for me in many ways. A stand alone book which leads me to a sociopath view of Grace. Not sure if this is a book I love, or wish I hadn’t read. It makes you think, makes you feel, then shuts you down. Sometimes when reading a psychological book you learn things about yourself. I don’t know if I’m comfortable with what I’ve learned about myself with this book. However I do know that it was well worth the effort to read.
