A stunning psychological thriller that announces the arrival of an electrifying new writer.
Frank Clevenger is a forensic psychologist who hates authority, fears intimacy, uses sex as an anesthetic, 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 empathize to the extent that he does with 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 competence of a homeless schizophrenic who has confessed to a particularly grisly murder. As evidence of a shocking series of murders begins to mount over the next seventy-two hours, Clevenger, plumbing the depths of the deranged behavior of others, will be forced to confront his own most terrifying and powerful demons.
Gripping, relentlessly paced, informed with a ferocious intelligence, Denial is an astonishing debut.
