This week's neglected book

Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline

Publication Date: April 2015
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
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?

Why did I add Every Fifteen Minutes to my bookshelf?

I have a beautiful signed hardcover copy of this one sitting on my bookshelf.  I remember buying this book for a local author event.  I had a great time and enjoyed hearing Lisa Scottoline's talk.  I usually like her books so I really should have read this one by now.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?

  2. Scottoline is a great story teller. I haven't been disappointed by any of her books I've read. I haven't read Every Fifteen Minutes, but I'm sure it's as good as her others.

  5. I think she writes a series about a female lawyer I read the first one or two many years ago and got too busy to continue at that time. I don't know this one but it's a genre I enjoy. Anne - Books of My Heart

  11. I've enjoyed a lot of her books but haven't read any recently. As soon as I posted my Backlog book last week my internet went down so I missed this week. Good to be back and will join again next week.
