Bound By Suggestion by L.L. Bartlett is the fourth book in the “Jeff Resnick” mystery series. Publisher: L.L. Bartlett, March 2011
In exchange for helping her unlock the emotions of a disturbed young woman, psychiatrist Dr. Krista Marsh promises to cure Jeff Resnick’s recurring headaches via hypnotism. Things start out rocky and quickly get worse when both the young girl and the doctor begin to manipulate Jeff. Soon he’s experiencing the young woman’s emotions and can’t tell where hers leave off and his begin, and Krista has other reasons for ingratiating herself into Jeff’s life. Meanwhile, Jeff’s brother Richard is vying for a chairman seat on the hospital’s fund raising board. Two seemingly unrelated events that suddenly converge with deadly results.
What a mind-blowing story that started with a simple request but led to a harrowing journey for Jeff. Feeling vulnerable, Jeff agrees to help a doctor with her patient. What happens next had me pulling for Jeff as he struggles to conquer the demons that have been set upon him. Jeff’s world collides when a disturbing situation threatens both brothers. The author has written another suspenseful and gripping chapter in the life of Jeff Resnick that left me mesmerized and had my adrenaline pumping as the story came to its conclusion. This was great read and I can’t wait for the next chapter in this fabulous series.
