    One thought on “The Prodigy: A Novel of Suspense”

    1. This sort of modern fiction is not usually the type of book I read (alright I read plenty of it so maybe I should clarify that it's not the type of book I love) so I'm not sure what possessed me to pull this off the new material table at the library. It was probably the allure of music combined with a psychopath and at least in the psychology department, the author delivered. As a expert in psychology, his expertise and insights bled into the story so I enjoyed the profiling and analysis.But the [...]

    2. James Martin IV was a former child prodigy and talented cellist. He is a resident of an institution for the criminally insane. James was convicted of stalking a female musician and murdering her. Now from the power of money he is released. James is requesting that Dr. Barrett Conyers treat him as her patient. James is not the typical patient Dr. Conyers would take on but there is just something about James that draws her to him. James may be considered a sociopath but there is more than meets th [...]

    3. Pas parfait et par moment une intrigue peu originale, mais ce livre demeure tout demême un premier roman assez réussi. La fin est une réussite complète, puisqu'elle nous tient en haleine et nous donne le goût de sauter à pieds joints dans la suite des aventures du personnages principales. Pour le reste, intrigue, personnage, rythme, tout est bien, sans erreur majeure, mais on sent parfois des glissements vers des paterns et des schémas classiques et un peu faciles, des détials ici et là [...]

    4. This is a book filled with many surprises. The reader follows a complex story of a determined forensic psychiatrist and a mentally ill psychopath. There is a story within a story as the reader turns each page.The novel takes the reader into the mind of both the psychiatirst and the "patient" and is rich with dialogue and intigue. Chilling.

    5. I met this author because my boyfriend worked with him, so that's the only reason I even knew it existed. But I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to read and how quickly it grabbed my attention. I truly enjoyed this book, so much that halfway through I was already searching for the second one in the series.

    6. Well, It was a book who brought me to another world. I was afraid, but I got in the story very fast. I ate that book. This book is a real Novel of Suspense, without any doubt.I love it, so I gave it a four.

    7. While it was a little bit predictable, this book was very well written. It was suspenseful, exciting, and I couldn't put it down, even though I had already worked out what was happening. Highly recommended =)

    8. This book left me with a total cliffhanger.was so mad at the authorbut then I found the next installment at the library. So he is forgiven as long as the cliffhanger item is revealed.

    9. Titillated the psych major in me. Suspenseful, although a bit predictable and the end. Good page-turner nonetheless.
