Publisher's Summary

After the brutal murder of an art gallery owner, the beautiful and mysterious artist Holly Troy seems to be the key to finding out what really happened on the night of the homicide. Unfortunately, Holly also suffers from dissociative identity disorder, and many of her personalities come straight from classical mythology, from the powerful Cronos and Pandora to the fickle Fates. Holly has no idea who she was the night of the crime - whether she witnessed anything, or even if she was the killer herself. Homicide detective Orson Cheever must unravel the complex labyrinth of Holly’s mind before he can find the truth, but he soon finds himself drawn into his own past when Holly begins exhibiting the personality of a five-year-old girl. Desperate to solve the crime and escape his own long-buried grief, Cheever plunges ahead, treading the line between investigator and protector in this suspenseful psychological thriller.

Great Characters, Good Mystery

Okay, I admit to not fully believing in multiple personalities as described in this book. So right away it loses 2 stars for me. However, the characters are so well written and developed I had no problem finishing the book.

Sometimes when I am frustrated with a book it is because I really liked a lot of it. This has a fascinating premise and a great conclusion, but I felt cheated getting there.

I loved the reader heis one talented guy.

- Charles Atkinson "Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?"

The human mind is the biggest world of all.

Multiple Wounds is another novel about multiple personality disorders, but this one is different. Most of the many personalities of the young woman are Greek gods. The young woman's father was a professor who read and acted out books on mythology when she was young. He was also a pedophile. Multiple Woulds is a profoundly troubling look into a human mind that has been altered by childhood memories that no one should have. Helen's mind is merely trying to cope with the sick actions of her parents when she was young.

I give Multiple Wounds 4 stars, but be aware that it is a profoundly troubling psychological thriller that should be approached with caution. To say the book is dark is an understatement. I wish I had not listened to it.

McLeod Andrews' narration is simply perfect!
