What if you had to relive your most terrifying memory...over and over? A detective and a psychiatrist investigate in Thriller Award-winning author Brian Freeman's gripping psychological novel.

Homicide detective Frost Easton doesn't like coincidences. When a series of bizarre deaths rock San Francisco--as seemingly random women suffer violent psychotic breaks--Frost looks for a connection that leads him to psychiatrist Francesca Stein. Frankie's controversial therapy helps people erase their most terrifying memories...and all the victims were her patients.

As Frost and Frankie carry out their own investigations, the case becomes increasingly personal--and dangerous. Long-submerged secrets surface as someone called the Night Bird taunts the pair with cryptic messages pertaining to the deaths. Soon Frankie is forced to confront strange gaps in her own memory, and Frost faces a killer who knows the detective's worst fears.

As the body count rises and the Night Bird circles ever closer, a dedicated cop and a brilliant doctor race to solve the puzzle before a cunning killer claims another victim.

The author posses a good knowledge of San Francisco.
In the book there are some flaws, it seems to me from the inattention of the author or the editor. For example, you read an episode where there is a dialogue, and then through some pages, again there is a dialogue about the same topic, serving as something new.
But in general it was interesting read. Although there are sugary moments, for example, how it ends - everything is good, everyone calmed down and began to drink beer and look at the sky...

Story about a detective and psychiatrist - who uses controversial methods on her patients - who work together to try to solve a case of unexplained "madness" and resulting death of two men with another gone missing. Good book but thought the psychiatrist's methods were odd and implausible. Not enough of psychological thriller for me but passable.
