One of Us
A famous forensic psychologist returns to his home town, ends up investigating a murder case, and must face his own demons.
We know right away who the murderer is and suspect a good deal more. I'm not sure about Sheridan's qualifications as a psychologist, maybe the old saw, "Physician, heal thyself" applies.
Most reviews of this one have been very positive, and once more, I am not in agreement. It all comes down to the kind of book you enjoy, I guess. I found the characters thin and the plot predictable.
Oh, and the description of characters usually included their expensive name brands. I found that jarring and off-putting.
I'm going to categorize this one as OK. You may love it, but it didn't work for me.
