Description

Arthur Ellis award-winning William Deverell's 2003 bestseller

In Mind Games, William Deverell returns to the intriguing territory of the law and lawyers and of human psychology and motivation, and he does so in familiar Deverell sur­roundings: the streets, courtrooms, and waters of Vancouver.

Dr. Tim Dare is a forensic psychiatrist whose life is in a mess: his wife has just left him to find herself; his mother is being sued for libel by a small-town mayor over a mystery novel; he's been made the monitor of a man just out of psychiatric hospital, a man he considers a psychopathic murderer; he's being hauled before a disciplinary committee for "misplacing" a file; one of his patients is "transferring" feelings to him rather too romantically; and now someone's threatening to kill him. He can't even get into an elevator without falling apart. No wonder he thinks he needs to see a shrink himself. Under the guidance of fellow psychiatrist Dr. Allison Epstein, Dare gradually learns how to face the demons within -- and those in the real world that are really out to get him.
