A brilliant psychiatrist is seduced and falls in love with a serial killer, who's also her patient (and an inmate). When it comes to rape victims (especially minors) it's almost impossible to turn them into unsympathetic characters. Somehow that mission is accomplished with the primary character of this story. I feel awful for what she went through as an adolescent, but the decisions she makes as a practicing psychiatrist and alleged professional cause some of the sympathy to evaporate to the point you really don't care about her fate by the end of the book. The loss of sympathy is primarily because she turns her back on the people in her life who genuinely care about her in favor of screwing a murderer just because he's got nice eyes and sweet talks her. I was married to a woman who was the victim of rape as a child and this character does a disservice to victims who actually turn out to not be hell bent on self destruction.
