Comments for Private Eyes

Private EyesPrivate Eyes: 06/02/07

Private Eyes is the sixth in a series of thrillers staring Dr. Alex Delaware. This book is the first in the lot that I've attempted to read and will be the last. I don't normally stop reading a book since I read so quickly but this book didn't hold my attention enough to even both speed reading it.

The premise for this book is that Dr. Delaware is visited by a patient he hasn't seen in 10 years and now he has to help her again face her fears. Her mother had been brutally attacked which caused her to have a whole bunch of phobias. These phobias she then passed on to her daughter. Now that the man who attacked is out of prison and on the move, the patient is once again afraid.

If this were any normal thriller, the weird stuff would have started by page twenty or so. Not here. No, we have to suffer through endless medical reports instead of getting either plot or characterization. By page 100 or so where nothing had yet happened, I gave up.
