Solving the Puzzles of the Mind: Psychiatrists in Mysteries

Mystery Month 2015In Lisa Scottoline’s new stand-alone thriller, Every Fifteen Minutes, a psychiatrist puts his family and career at risk to save a troubled young man. From good guys like Alex Cross to the unbelievably bad like Hannibal Lecter, psychiatrists offer a uniquely qualified view into the minds of men. (And, lest we forget Chelsea Cain’s deliciously evil Dr. Gretchen Lowell, women.) If your patrons like a little shrinking with their sleuthing, recommend these suspenseful tales of mind-bending mischief.
