Dante's Wood

A troubled psychiatrist turns investigator when a young patient confesses to murder. Psychiatrist Mark Angelotti knows that genes don't lie. Or do they? Back at work after a devastating illness, Mark believes he has put his past behind him when he is asked to examine Charlie Dickerson, a mentally handicapped teenager whose wealthy mother insists he is a victim of sexual abuse. Mark diagnoses a different reason for Charlie's ills, but his prescription turns deadly when a teacher is murdered and Charlie confesses to the police. Volunteering to testify on Charlie's behalf, Mark's worst fears are realized when paternity tests show the victim was pregnant with Charlie's child. Now it's up to Mark to prove Charlie's innocence in a case where nothing is as first meets the eye. Not even genes--Mark's or Charlie's--can be trusted to shine a light on the truth.

"Stunning. . . . One of the best mystery debuts since V.I. Warshawski solved her first case." Mystery Scene A real keeper. Library JournalSTARRED REVIEW and Mystery Debut of the Month Looking for the next great mystery series? I've found it.... Instantly engaging.... It was nearly impossible to tear myself away, and the sleuth inside my head was kept busy guessing whodunit until the very end...[P]erfect. Get in on the ground floor with this series, you won't be sorry. Chicago Now The trial scenes and dialogue with lawyers bristle with realism, and the book climaxes with a surprising twist. Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine "A taut, compelling, very moving debut novel that invites us into a murder, and into the life of a wonderful main character. This is an astonishingly accomplished and assured novel; the fact it's a first novel is wonderful news for those of us who love crime fiction." LOUISE PENNY, author of How the Light Gets In: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel "Angelotti's smart-aleck tendencies and unswerving dedication to his vulnerable client as well as an exciting climax keep the reader turning the pages." Publishers Weekly If you cross Christie s And Then There Were None, Grisham s The Firm and Harris The Silence of the Lambs, you might get something like [this.] RT Book Reviews Raimondo's wonderful writing brings the heart-stopping action to life, and she is just as accomplished at pulling the readers' heartstrings. The book ends with the mystery of the killer wrapped up, but it leaves the mystery of the ensuing trajectory of Mark's life wide open. I'm looking forward to finding out about the latter in future installments of the series. Reviewing the Evidence [A] terrific mystery starring a wise-cracking protagonist who uses self-deprecating humor as a defense mechanism . The storyline grips the reader from the moment Mark and Charlie meet . Mystery Gazette"
