The Forgetting Place

The Forgetting Place: A Novel - John Burley

3.5 There have been so many good psychological thrillers published lately, and this one can certainly join those aptly. Lise a psychiatrist has worked at Mennecker Institution for five years when a patient with no medical history is presented to her. When the FBI gets involved things start moving quickly.

The first part of this book was rather slowly paced as we become familiar with the institution, Lise and this new case. The second part was non stop action as things start happening quickly and secrets are revealed. Things are not as they appear, there is much more than meets the eye.

Good twisty novel with some heartbreaking looks at entail illness and the havoc it can wreak in a family. I applaud the author from his effort to separate the illness from the person.
