A True Story of Professional Privilege and Serial Murder
by Dr. Martin Obler and Thomas Clavin
When psychologist Martin Obler accepts as a patient a disturbed young man who is having violent dreams, he grows more and more uneasy when he learns about a recent series of murders, the grizzly details of which sound horrifyingly familiar. As Obler enters the mind of this madman, he finds himself caught in a terrifying web of manipulation, deceit and increasing certainty that his patient is a serial killer. Soon, Obler's own fiancée is being stalked.
As doctor and patient clash in a battle between good and evil, Obler must decide between his legal and ethical obligations and his responsibility to the woman he loves and society. So spine tingling it seems like fiction, but is in fact true.
