Product Description

Product Description

Bound By Suggestion was inspired by the short story ... COLD CASE, also by L.L. Bartlett.

In exchange for helping her unlock the emotions of a disturbed young woman, psychiatrist Dr. Krista Marsh promises to cure Jeff Resnick's recurring headaches via hypnotism. Things start out rocky and quickly get worse when both the young girl and the doctor begin to manipulate Jeff. Soon he's experiencing the young woman's emotions and can't tell where hers leave off and his begin, and Krista has other reasons for ingratiating herself into Jeff's life. Meanwhile, Jeff’s brother Richard is vying for a chairman seat on the hospital’s fundraising board. When these seemingly unrelated events suddenly converge, the results are deadly.

"This fast paced paranormal thriller will keep everyone wanting to see a LOT more of Jeff Resnick!"
-- The Feathered Quill Reviews

Eight months ago Jeff Resnick was an unemployed insurance investigator who had spent a night out with his friends when he was bushwhacked by a couple of muggers who broke his head, his arm, concussed him, and stole what few things of value that had after ransacking his apartment. Waking up in the hospital, his estranged, and rich physician half-brother Richard Alpert has appeared, and takes him back to the old family home in Buffalo where Richard was living in a strained relationship with his lover Brenda.

Brenda won't marry Richard because her relatives won't approve of a mixed marriage, but taking care of Jeff and getting involved with his problems has caused the two to heal their problems and they finally marry. Now in this fourth novel, Jeff and Richard have come to an understanding about Jeff unpredictable psychic powers, and Richard asks Jeff to look into the disappearance of four-year-old Eric Devlin because Eric's mother is Richard's patient.

It's on this case that Jeff meets the self-serving, ambitious, and amoral psychiatrist Krista Marsh. Marsh is fascinated by Jeff's abilities and offers to help him with his continuing problems with migraines if he helps her with a particular problem patient.

It seems that the broken Grace Vanderstein has been molested and raped throughout her lifetime, and she is also now permanently wheelchair bound after a drunk has caused a car accident which has also killed her rich and influential father. Grace is suffering from depression, self-loathing, and a vitriolic hatred for everything so palpable that it hits Jeff like a hammer blow when he first meets her.

Unfortunately, Marsh is not trustworthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars again another good read 11 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I cannot praise these books enough, read them slightly out of order, but that meant I could go back and read them again in order, not too much repetition about how the state of play is, and the plots are very good
