"Police, what is your emergency?"
"They're in the house and they're going to kill me..."
My name is Marco and I am flawed. I know that. And I was fine with it until it cost me my family. Now, I'll do anything to get them back - even see a therapist. Which is a joke, because I am a therapist. At least I was before I was fired.
Now, with nowhere else to go, I've had to move out of the city and into the house I inherited here, in the idyllic fishing village of Porthcove, but only for as long as it takes to sell it.
Because something isn't right about this place.
You see, I need the money, so I've started seeing some of the locals, you know, as patients, but I tell you, there's something really disturbing about charming neighbors sharing chilling secrets. And it isn't just that. It's the other things. Strange, inexplicable things. It started with odd smells, creepy sounds, and then the intruders...oh God, the intruders.
Now, a child has gone missing, the police are asking questions, and I'm starting to wonder if they're right. Maybe I can't be trusted, but you should come and see for yourself; there's something seriously wrong with this place. It is something hideous, terrifying, and it's been here the whole time, just waiting to devour my hope, my sanity and maybe even my life.
Psychosis contains strong language throughout.

It's certainly right up there with the most engaging of them all. The narrator is full of personality that twists and molds to fit each character.
It certainly did, the story throws you into a messed up situation with a messed up person, Marco, watching him fight his way back to some sense of clarity was at times heart wrenching, infuriating and downright scary!
Rosko brings Marco, the main character, to life in the most spectacular way, he gives him the depth and nuance that makes you simultaneously want to help and want to hate Marco. He embodies the flawed nature of Marco, and human life, perfectly.
It certainly gave me a chuckle or two, there are plenty of witticisms throughout the book to enjoy. And it did, rather unexpectedly, make me cry when there are revelations further into the book!
As with many of Mr Marturano's works, I only wish this could be brought to life on screen, it was something unique and intriguing to listen to, and I very much enjoyed it!
