WHAT PSYCHOLOGIST LAURA COVINGTON LEARNS IS UNIMAGINABLE ...
WHAT SHE DOES IS UNPRECEDENTED.
Oregon, 1989. DR. LAURA COVINGTON makes the life changing decision to give up her cushy corporate job and devote herself to community mental health. She wants a needier, grittier case load, and does she ever get it.
Laura's private life changes as radically as her professional life. She has envisioned herself free. But when she moves, it is not alone. She must take along her barracuda of a mother, and she inherits a troubled child from a former client. Becoming a mother at forty was the last thing on her mind. Well maybe it wasn't as big a surprise as the romance that walks smack into her heart.
One of her new clients is so traumatized he has more than one personality with which he faces the world. Through him, Laura discovers a psychopath using mental and physical torture to "create" an army of troubled souls that responds to his every wish. Laura fights back, as ethically as she knows how. But the tension and terror escalate when those she loves are threatened, tortured or murdered. Laura comes face to face with how far she is willing to go to protect her own.
5-Star Reviews call Lessons of Evil "chilling" as it "ropes you in from the beginning, throws a few curve balls and keeps you thinking throughout."
