Publisher Description

Mark Schorr's critically acclaimed 10th novel, a thriller about a Portland, Oregon crisis counselor who battles to uncover a murderous conspiracy after the suspicious death of one of his clients. The title comes from the borderline personality disorder diagnosis, people who are subject to strong impulsivity, emotions, and self destructive behaviors.
Hanson is a Vietnam veteran with his own issues, PTSD and recovery from drug addiction. They're what motivated him to work as a therapist with some of his city's most downtrodden residents. His symptoms flare up as he begins to investigate and finds his livelihood, his marriage and ultimately his life threatened.
Giving an insider's view of psychotherapy, as well as the gritty side of the Rose City, the book plunges readers into the world of Northwesterners struggling to stay alive.
Hanson's wife, Jeanie, is as ambitious as the counselor is caring. A rising bank executive, she is on the front line of the city's accelerating real estate development.
Is her in with the ruthless deputy mayor becoming more important than her marriage?
As he investigates, Hanson forms an alliance with Louise Parker, a tough FBI agent who struggles with her own concerns--an uncle who is a notorious convicted criminal, and a client of Hanson's--and determination to advance in the Bureau.
Underneath it all is the rising disappearance of some of the city's most violent criminals. Is it Portland's good fortune or something more sinister?
Borderline was described by bestselling author and Edgar nominee Steve Hodel as "a fast paced thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat." Booklist called it "Impressive." Goodreads called it a "thrilling read." The Oregonian called it "lucid and eminently readable." Library Journal said, "Schorr's new series launch is a winner." Kirkus Reviews said, "Schorr crafts an ingenious plot, full of clever twists and surprises."
