Summary

Summary

Dr. Eric Parrish is the Chief of the Psychiatric Unit at Havemeyer General Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Recently separated from his wife Alice, he is doing his best as a single Dad to his seven-year-old daughter Hannah. His work seems to be going better than his home life, however. His unit at the hospital has just been named number two in the country and Eric has a devoted staff of doctors and nurses who are as caring as Eric is. But when he takes on a new patient, Eric's entire world begins to crumble. Seventeen-year-old Max has a terminally ill grandmother and is having trouble handling it. That, plus his OCD and violent thoughts about a girl he likes makes Max a high risk patient. Max can't turn off the mental rituals he needs to perform every fifteen minutes that keep him calm. With the pressure mounting, Max just might reach the breaking point. When the girl is found murdered, Max is nowhere to be found. Worried about Max, Eric goes looking for him and puts himself in danger of being seen as a "person of interest" himself. Next, one of his own staff turns on him in a trumped up charge of sexual harassment. Is this chaos all random? Or is someone systematically trying to destroy Eric's life? New York Times best selling author Lisa Scottoline's visceral thriller, Every Fifteen Minutes, brings you into the grip of a true sociopath and shows you how, in the quest to survive such ruthlessness, every minute counts.

Booklist Review

*Starred Review* Dr. Eric Parrish's wife has filed for divorce, and he is trying to remain a caring and involved dad to his seven-year-old daughter. Then Parish, chief of the psychiatric unit at a leading hospital outside Philadelphia. is called to consult on an elderly woman dying of cancer, but he quickly realizes it's her 17-year-old grandson, Max, who needs the help. Max is suffering from a severe case of OCD repeating rituals every 15 minutes plus depression issues exacerbated by his alcoholic mother and terminally ill grandmother. Max agrees to treatment, but a few sessions in, his grandmother dies, and he admits to having fantasies of killing a particular young woman, who shortly ends up dead. Max promptly disappears. The extremely empathetic Eric becomes way too involved in searching for his missing patient and putting himself in harm's way. By invoking doctor-patient privilege, he incurs the wrath of the police department and becomes a person of interest himself, getting suspended from his job and giving his wife ammunition in the child-custody battle. Occasional chapters from the killer's viewpoint seem to lead the reader toward an obvious conclusion, but Scottoline has plenty of tricks up her sleeve. Every Fifteen Minutes is a stand-alone, but it won't disappoint fans of her popular Rosato & Associates series and may well attract new readers. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A 250,000-copy market distribution will get Scottoline's latest off to a fast start.--Alesi, Stacy Copyright 2015 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Bestseller Scottoline (Keep Quiet) casts an unflinching eye on the damaged world of sociopaths in this exciting page-turner. The personal life of Dr. Eric Parrish, chief of the psychiatric unit at Havemeyer General Hospital in Philadelphia's suburbs, is even more of a challenge than his job. His wife, Caitlin, has filed for divorce, and, as a result, he rarely gets to spend time with his seven-year-old daughter, Hannah. Distraction arrives in the forms of Kristine Malin, an attractive medical student, and a friendly, flirtatious friendship with emergency doctor Laurie Fortunato. Things start to unravel for Eric when he has to field a sexual harassment claim and is implicated in the murder of a young woman. The misfortunes pile up, and both his career and his custody battle for Hannah are placed in jeopardy. Many characters who seem to be gunning for Eric are likely candidates for a sociopathic diagnosis. Once the red herrings are dispatched, the identity of the culprit who plots his downfall is a genuine surprise. Agent: Molly Friedrich, Friedrich Literary Agency.

Eric has a new patient, 17-year-old Max, afflicted with OCD and decidedly high risk. When Max disappears after a murder occurs, Eric goes looking for him--and gets called out by the police as a person of interest. Then an accusation of sexual harassment surfaces, and it starts to look as if someone has Eric in his sights. With a national one-day laydown on April 14. (c) Copyright 2014.
