Frank Clevenger is a forensic psychiatrist who hates authority, fears intimacy, uses sex as an aesthetic, is tortured by his professional mistakes, and can't free himself from the shadows of a brutal, alcoholic father and an absent, unfeeling mother. But it is precisely this injured psyche that allows him to understand the deranged behavior of the mental and emotional outcasts who cross his professional path.
As Denial opens, all of Clevenger's understanding and expertise are put to the test: He has been asked to rubber-stamp the mental competence of a homeless schizophrenic who has confessed to a particularly grisly murder. As evidence of a shocking series of murders begins to mount, Clevenger will be forced to confront his own most terrifying and powerful demons.

On his way to jail to certify the sanity of a homeless man accused of murder, Dr. Frank Klevenger listens to a B-52's CD and snorts cocaine as he drives from the handsome seaside town of Marblehead to the urban decay of Lynn, Massachusetts. So much for mental health. But Keith R. Ablow, a practicing psychiatrist himself, quickly shows us why Dr. Klevenger is so good at his job: his own personal demons give him an unusual understanding of troubled minds, which lifts this debut thriller to an insightful and exciting level.From the Publisher:
"This is a deliciously creepy psychological thriller that could only have been written by a psychiatrist or a psychiatric patient. Keith Ablow is a very fine writer. Denial is a stark and terrifying journey into the mind of the criminally insane, an absolutely spellbinding and shocking tale."
-- Nelson DeMille, author of By The Rivers of Babylon
"Deftly, with driving prose, Ablow portrays the horror and bleakness of damaged lives. A dark and compelling debut."
-- Jonathan Kellerman, author of The Clinic
