The Vanishing Patient
A doctor begins to doubt her own sanity as she investigates a patient’s wild claims in this new mystery from the author of Lethal Resuscitation . . .
Dr. Cathy Moreland is taken aback when an irate patient comes to her practice claiming his ailing wife has been kidnapped by one of her colleagues using a false name. Is someone impersonating a doctor, or is Adam Steer delusional?
After looking into Adam’s claims, she feels reassured that no such thing actually happened—but continues to worry that Steer is mentally unwell. A visit to his home only leads to more alarm. No one answers the door, but Cathy overhears a conversation that convinces her something sinister is going on—and that she herself may be in danger.
Cathy’s own bipolar disorder is well-managed, but she’s beginning to doubt her own sanity—and others are, too. As strange developments unfold, will she be able to make any sense of the events around her before everything spirals out of control?
