Publisher's Summary

Despite his brilliance, Paul Skoglund hasn't held a steady job for years, partly because of his Tourette's syndrome, a neurological disorder that forces his body into wild swings and to blurt out words that are hilariously, often tragically, inappropriate. When his eccentric, wealthy aunt asks him to take on the repairs of her magnificent hunting lodge, he is in no position to refuse. But inside the lodge lies a scene of almost superhuman destruction: a violence now mirrored by a series of disappearances and deaths haunting the region. As Paul delves into the wreckage, he can't help but wonder what dark passion, and what strength, could cause such chaos.
Janet, Paul's icy ex-wife, plans to use his condition to wrest away custody of their young son. And in his otherwise uncertain world, Paul is sure of one thing: nothing and no one is going to come between him and Mark. But quickening events lead him deeper into his family's past, and as Paul faces the darker aspects of his own nature, he must brave the possibility that in saving those he loves, he might well destroy himself.

Critic Reviews

"A narrative that's populated by believable characters and infused with healthy doses of medical science and psychology. Skull Session is a story that keeps the reader guessing till the very end." (The New York Times Book Review)

Great enough for ME to review!

Though I don't usually put my opinions up for public, for this book I had to. The story is an incredible mix of intense psychology and suspense. The explicit language and the sexual interludes make this for the mature only--fair warning. Fortunately, this is just the type of book a cartoon-plagued parent needs to get her brain thinking at an adult level again. I was absolutely riveted throughout the book. Literally, I could not put my iPod down. I highly recommend both the story and the author. I'm looking forward to hearing more from Daniel Hecht in the near future.

Another great book by DH

Also read Land of Echoes and City of Masks both are GREAT! They are the only two books (so far) that include the paranormal investigator Cree Black. I suggest these for the paranormal mystery fan!
