The author totally surprised me this time. I never saw it coming, when trying to detect for myself who the culprit was. This time, a young woman who had been sexually abused as a child, seeking help in counseling, accuses her therapist of stepping over the line, and then suddenly she is found dead. Supposedly a self-induced death. Of course that is not the case, but the path to finding why and who did cause her death was really interesting, and definitely told from a different point of view.
