A slow-boil, modern noir, Of Sound Mind finds audiometry technician Richard Keene settling into his new, center-city apartment just as he reaches his thirtieth birthday. Formerly confined to a mental institution, Richard struggles to adapt to a world of adult freedom. He possesses abnormally acute powers of hearing and suffers from claustrophobia, yet he feels unleashed to dare fate in high places in short, he is a bundle of neuroses.

When he believes he hears a strangulation murder committed behind the closed door of a neighboring apartment in his high-rise, Richard confronts a chance for redemption that he knew would come someday. For the incident eerily parallels the defining experience of his childhood, the night he heard through the walls of his row house the death struggle of the little girl next door.

But just how reliable are Richard’s perceptions?

About the Author:

A former teacher and corporate personnel director, James Waltzer turned to writing in 1988 and has since written more than 700 features for regional magazines in the Northeast. In addition to his award-winning feature writing, he has authored six books, including novels and nonfiction titles. He lives in Pennsylvania.

From Booklist:

Richard Keene, a former mental patient who now works as a hearing-test technician, is convinced that he heard a murder being committed in his apartment building. But who is going to believe a man with a history of psychological problems? To make matters worse, there is no body, and the supposed murderer is a well-known, respected physician. But Richard has never been one to let a few obstacles get in the way, and he's determined to show everyone he's not just hearing things. This debut novel is sharply plotted and engagingly written. Fans of Francis Ford Coppola's film The Conversation--in which a private detective believes he's captured a murder plot on audiotape--will notice some similarities, such as the general air of claustrophobia and paranoia, but not enough to make the novel feel uncomfortably derivative. There are plenty of variations to work on this theme, and Waltzer works enough of them to keep the story fresh. A worthy first effort. David Pitt
