Dr. Eric Parrish is the Chief of the Psychiatric Unit at Havemeyer General Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Recently separated from his wife Alice, he is doing his best as a single Dad to his seven-year-old daughter Hannah. His work seems to be going better than his home life, however. His unit at the hospital has just been named number two in the country and Eric has a devoted staff of doctors and nurses who are as caring as Eric is. But when he takes on a new patient, Eric's entire world begins to crumble. Seventeen-year-old Max has a terminally ill grandmother and is having trouble handling it.

With the pressure mounting, Max just might reach the breaking point. When the girl is found murdered, Max is nowhere to be found. Worried about Max, Eric goes looking for him and puts himself in danger of being seen as a "person of interest" himself. Next, one of his own staff turns on him in a trumped up charge of sexual harassment. Is this chaos all random? Or is someone systematically trying to destroy Eric's life?New York Times best selling author Lisa Scottoline's visceral thriller, Every Fifteen Minutes,brings you into the grip of a true sociopath and shows you how, in the quest to survive such ruthlessness, every minute counts.

Tom Fortez is a psychiatrist with a succesful private practice and a loving wife and daughter. He's held in high esteem at the prestigious psychiatric hospital and on the national book-and-lecture circuit. One of his most complex patients is Mike Browning, a brilliant but disturbed young man who has begun to exhibit violent delusions directed at the employees of the insurance company from which he was recently fired. He's particularly focused on a young woman who spurned his advances, and he's made statements about her in his therapy sessions that make Tom concerned for her safety. Tom is struggling to decide whether to breach the confidentiality of his patient (thus thwarting his efforts at treatment) by going to the police when Browning goes missing. And then the woman in question is found raped and murdered in her apartment complex. Tom immediately goes to the police to report what he knows, and suddenly finds himself in the headlines, the target of scorn and anger throughout the community. The nightmare only gets worse when Browning takes hostages at the insurance company. As Tom investigates on his own he finds clues that Browning may not have committed the rape and murder, and he must hurry to solve the murder and stop Browning from killing any hostages before time runs out.

Opinion

From Library Staff

This is my top pick for 2015 because it was an intense, suspenseful weaving of several characters and their relationship to a psychologist who is being framed. Cheryl

A who-done-it that kept me guessing until the end.
