Publisher's Summary

Jack Caleb is a Gold Coast psychiatrist, wealthy, cultured - and gay. John Thinnes is a burned out Chicago detective. When one of Caleb's clients is found dead in his locked apartment - apparently of a self-inflicted head wound, Thinnes doesn't believe it was suicide. And Caleb is inclined to agree. But Thinnes regards a shrink who makes house calls suspicious and starts his investigation of the murder with the doctor himself. An attack on Dr. Caleb, made to look like an accidental drug overdose, starts to change the detective's mind.

Twisting plot

This is an interesting story. It does not progress as the synopsis indicates. For Jack Caleb, the psychiatrist, being gay is a factor but not a major one in this book. Detective John Thinnes has problems he is working through. Those problems do not interfere with the story as he works through them. It is a mystery with plots and sub plots all progressing towards proving an apparent suicide is murder and solving it. The characters are good. The reading by Stephen Hoye is excellent. It was fun discovering who the actual murderer was. This is a very enjoyable audiobook.
