Books I've read this week - You Can't Hide

You Can’t Hide ©2006 by Karen Rose

From the cover: "YOU DON'T KNOW WHO I AM.

Terror has forever changed the life of psychiatrist Tess Ciccotelli. Someone is tormenting her patients, pushing them to commit suicide, and setting her up to take the blame. But Tess can’t break her oath to protect her patients’ privacy at all costs. Even when detective Aidan Reagan demands a list of everyone she’s treating. Even when the mounting danger threatens Tess herself.


Aidan doesn’t like anyone who stalls his cases. Still, he can’t help but admire Tess’s fierce loyalty to her patients, especially when it becomes clear that a nameless, faceless enemy is set on destroying her career, her family, and finally, Tess herself. As Aidan’s heart softens, the killer’s will hardens, and one thing becomes clear – the noose is tightening around Tess’s neck.


This was a good mystery and just when I thought I’d figured out ‘whodunit’, that person ended up another victim of the killer. Someone is trying to ruin Tess’s life using her patients and friends. Her first thought is someone she helped put in jail is seeking revenge. But as more and more people she’s associated with are killed, she can’t think of anyone who hates her that much. Aidan disliked her because he felt she let one killer escape prison by pleading to insanity. As he gets to know her, he realizes that she always does what she believes in, whether it’s the popular opinion, or not. As expected in most good books, the damsel in distress and the hero end up getting together. For a book that is almost 500 pages, it did a good job of keeping my interest with well-developed characters and storylines.
