The Last Thing I Told You

I hear myself whispering. Not again. Not again. Why did I ever come back here? Surely because of you. Because I thought of something I'd always meant to tell you. Because you were the only one I ever really wanted to tell it to.Therapist Dr. Mark Fabian is dead, bludgeoned in his office. But that doesn't stop former patient Nadine Raines from talking to him -- in her head. Why did she come back to her hometown after so many years away? Everyone here thinks she's crazy. And she has to admit, they might have good reason to think so. She committed a shockingly violent act when she was sixteen and has never really been able to explain that dark impulse, even to Fabian. Now that Fabian's dead, why is she still trying? Meanwhile, as Detective Henry Peacher investigates Fabian's death, he discovers that shortly before he died, Fabian pulled the files of two former patients. One was of Nadine Raines, one of Henry's former high school classmates. Henry still remembers the disturbing attack on a...

    4/5 stars. I received a copy of this from my local bookstore.

    This was actually a pretty good thriller. I haven't read one quite like this in a while. It takes a bit to get used to the changing POV's and the constant switching between the past and present. You really dont know what your going to get once the POV's changed which was unique in its own way. The good thing about this was that it kept me guessing until the end. This book did a great job of giving you such small bits of information at

    Thank you goodreads, this was a giveaway win!

    Honestly, this one was a little boring. It was a little slow, and alot of stiff I felt that was just filler, it didn't really have anything to do with what was going on....

    The story takes place in Campion, Connecticut. It goes back and forth between Detective Henry Preacher, who is investigating the death of therapist Mark Fabian and Nadine Raines, a former patient of Fabian's. Nadine is not a very likeable character, she was kinda boring, neurotic an

    This book had an intriguing premise. Psychotherapist Dr. Mark Fabian is found murdered in his office. Detective Henry Peacher, who is investigating the case, finds himself delving deep into the past, into the lives of Fabian's former patients, the history of the local senior home, and his own personal connections to the small town of Campion, where the murder took place and where Detective Peacher is based. Who wanted Fabian dead, or -- more accurately -- who didn't want him dead?

    Unfortunately,

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. What I wish I'd also received was a better pay-off for a story with a lot of promise. Generally, I like novels about therapists and psychologists. The variety of patient stories, the struggle for their own stability, and the chance of great surprise when it turns out they are much scarier than anything you’d hear in their sessions. Not everybody can be Hannibal, but there’s always that chance that the plaid suit and the kitchen utensi ...more
