    Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver.

    Overall

    Don't get me wrong, the audible representation of the book is all first class. Excellent reading and quality (if anything I'd like a higher bitrate but thats a general issue).
    I had high expectations here as I liked the historian, it was a very nice story with a nice flow to it that I like. This one started out fine, nice scenery and interesting events at the start. From there nothing happened for about 26 chapters. I haven't even gotten to the end yet, its all repetition and plain booring. So, be prepared for 26 chapters describing a painter trying too hard to depict the same lady over and over. I'm sorry but too me this was a complete disaster.
