KILL SWITCH--available 12/13/11!
A heart-pounding glimpse into the world of forensic psychiatry, Kill Switch marks the powerful fiction debut of Neal Baer and Jonathan Greene—former executive producers of television's acclaimed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Filled with breakneck suspense, vivid characters, and riveting detail, it is a mindbending thriller you'll never forget...
Meet Claire Waters, a young, dedicated forensic psychiatrist with unnervingly personal insights into the criminal mind. Haunted by a disturbing childhood incident—and driven by her demons—Claire has always been drawn to those rare "untreatable" patients who seem to have no conscience or fear. She has a natural ability to put people at ease, to help them face their darkest secrets. But one shocking case could make or break her career—and it's waiting for her in the psychiatric wing of New York City's Rikers Island.
His name is Quimby. A deranged inmate whose boyish good looks hide a sordid history of dysfunction and abuse, Quimby triggers something in Claire she'd rather not face. As she tries to unlock Quimby's past, she unwittingly reveals her own painful secrets—leaving herself dangerously vulnerable. For Claire, the patient's obsessions are just the beginning. When the case propels her into the mind of another killer—a homicidal maniac who's watching her every move—it could only end in madness, or murder, or both...
Brilliantly constructed and breathtakingly suspenseful, Kill Switch is a masterful combination of murder, mystery, and modern forensics that will keep you turning the pages to the final shocking conclusion.
The Fear Inside
Rikers Island's ten separate jails held between fifteen and eighteen thousand inmates. Three thousand of them were classified as mentally ill. That made Rikers the best place for a budding forensic psychiatrist like Claire Waters to study the criminal mind.
Claire was drawn to the patients most psychiatrists label as untreatable, hopeless cases with seemingly irreparable minds. As she walked past the prison cells, quickly studying each man's face, she thought, They're not hopeless. We're just not asking the right questions.
"Whoo-hoo. Yo, baby." Inmates leered at her from inside their cells. Claire wasn't sure whether to smile nonchalantly or act tough.
Reaching a door marked "Patient Interview," Claire Waters knew this was her chance to prove herself. It was the moment she had dreaded and driven herself to for almost ten years. Both exhilarated and terrified, she clung to the thinnest veneer of calm. But she knew she'd be all right because she had the gift: the natural ability to put people at ease, to draw out their darkest secrets, to connect with the sickest souls.
"What you're about to do is like nothing you've ever done as a psychiatrist before," her supervisor, Dr. Curtin, said. "Are you ready, Doctor?"
"Yes, sir," she replied.
"Go get him."
