The killer's modus operandi is the same in each instance—strangulation, always with a guitar string, pulled tight from behind until life is taken. And though the murders are taking place up and down country, there is one other similarity that Inspector Wilkins can't help noticing. Each and every victim is a psychotherapist.

From the Publisher:

The killer’s modus operandi is always the same: strangulation. And there’s another similarity that Inspector Wilkins can’t help noticing. Each and every victim is a psychotherapist. Donald Dorricks is on a mission. Nine shrinks to go and his mission is complete. Yet, even after giving himself up and confessing to the killings, he still protests his innocence. And just as Inspector Wilkins struggles to catch the killer, Dorricks’ wife Verine attempts to understand the reasoning behind the murders. As her husband’s tale emerges, it reveals a past peppered with secrets from which Donald has never been able to escape. Until now... Bernice Rubens’ many novels include the 1970 Booker Prize winner, The Elected Member, and A Five Year Sentence, which was shortlisted for the same award. Among her other books are two that were made into films: I Sent a Letter to My Love and Madame Souzatska.

About the Author:

Bernice Rubens was born in Wales. Her novels include the Booker-Prize winning THE ELECTED MEMBER and A FIVE YEAR SENTENCE, which was shortlisted for the same award.
