Shrink Rapt by Freda Hansburg (Book Review #744)


Shrink Rapt is a dark fiction mystery novel written about the treatments associated with mental disorders.  The story begins with the director of psychiatry, Lowell, being murdered. Since he was very arrogant and didn’t leave much of a fan base, the list of suspects isn’t short. Besides, the patients he was working on before his death also fall ill, and that creates more chaos and havoc.

The thrilling story was sometimes humorous as well as exciting to read. I didn’t want to put the book down. The psychological exploration of the whole cast was a particular aspect of the book that I really enjoyed.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The ending of the book was also a pleasant surprise. The complexity of the thriller with the added romantic notion created an amusing story. The tale’s message is about betrayal, love, trust and the underlying issue of drug testing.

April, the psychologist and Sam, the detective worked well together. Sam seeks her help in solving the mystery. I particularly enjoyed the fact that although she would try to rely on Sam when problems arose, but mostly, she counted on herself and her abilities to conquer the issue.

I would recommend this story to anyone who likes to read murder mysteries and enjoys exciting endings.
