The psychologist with a troubled past...
Dr. Christopher Kellan spends his days at Loveland Psychiatric Hospital, overseeing a unit known as Alpha Twelve, home to the most deranged and psychotic killers imaginable. His newest patient, Donny Ray Smith, is accused of murdering ten young girls and making their bodies disappear. But during his first encounter with Donny, Christopher finds something else unsettling: the man looks familiar.
The killer with a secret...
Donny Ray knows things about Christopher - things he couldn't have possibly learned at Loveland. As the psychologist delves deeper into the mysterious patient's case, Christopher's life whirls out of control. The contours of his mind are rapidly losing shape, and his grasp on reality is slipping even faster. Is he going mad, or is that what Donny Ray wants him to think?
The terror that binds them...
In this taut psychological thriller from Andrew E. Kaufman, best-selling author of The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted, a tormented man must face his fear and enter the mind of a killer to find the truth...even if it costs him his sanity.

I love novels that take me on a mind-bending ride. Saying that, it is easy for me to notice the clues left by the author in books like this determine the “reality” the character has fallen into. Sometimes, they become so mundanely predictable, that by reading the last few pages, I know the story.
Twisted is so not one of those.
I wanted to know every single detail of the mind-trip on which Dr. Kellan finds himself. I mean, there’s recognition of a murderer transferred to his psych ward, for crying out loud. What is up with that?
The characters of Chris, his wife and son are so developed as to transport me into the mind of Chris and welcome the wildness. Especially when people start disappearing.
Excellent narration kept me listening all through a day of work and made the drudgery of everyday life simply fall by the wayside as I mulled over where the end would take me.
Twisted is definitely a recommended listen.
The story most definitely has the right title. It kept me guessing through out the entire story. And just when I thought I had figured it out, it took me in a completely different direction. The ending was sad but, different. I enjoyed it immensely.
There was nothing to not love. The entire book was a mind blowing roller coaster ride that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.
A MUST READ!
Tell us about yourself! : I am an author who loves to read, more like loves to listen, since I spend so much time writing.
The narrator did an outstanding job of bringing the reader into the story.
Christophe Kellan. He is so passionate about saving his family and getting to the bottom of the conspiracy.
His voice was captivating and lively. He really drew me into the characters' feelings.
Yes, but I can't say without risking giving away the ending. I can only say it is when Christopher finally realizes what is going on.
This psychological thriller is chilling, interesting, and riveting. Don't hesitate to pick it up.
This was one of the more disturbing books I've read or listened to in a long time. It took me for a ride that I wanted to get off but couldn't stand the thought of not knowing what happened. I would recommend this as a great "listen on the way to/from work" book though be prepared to be late for a meeting because you just have to finish that chapter as you sit in the parking lot.
Not really sure about this one...I liked it but it dragged at times . One thing good it made you think about the book days after you finished it, which is a good thing with a book!
This story is listed as a thriller and it's anything but. I was able to figure out what was going on within 30 minutes of the start. It's a rehash of the same story told by better authors.
Nothing fresh, same ole, same ole.
He was fine.
Resides in Elkton, M.D. (but my heart belongs in Upstate, N.Y.)
What is real?
Can't say, and I hate this ?
The main character of course!
They're Coming to Take Me Away Ha,Ha, Ho,Ho, (Where Life is Beautiful All the Time, and I'll be Happy to See Those Nice Young Men In Their Clean White Coats and they're....)
Excellent book, didn't know if I was coming or going.For those of you who like the psychological thrillers READ THIS!!!!!
"If you're reading this run for the hills!"
A different narrator who did better impersonations and voices such as Kate Mulgrew, Michael Carman or Will Patton. That's as far as the narrator goes anyway.
Not use ridiculous similies "it was like swimming through crocheted sweaters" and that actually isn't the worst of them. This book is only worth listening to if in doing so you teach kids not to write like this.
Monotone deep voice initially, high pitched impersonation of females sounded like a comedian's impression. Very lack lustre and just made an awful book worse!
Scenes when he speaks to his child, we understand he loves him that's apparent first off but the indulgent conversations he has with him later on in the book simply aren't justified. This guy starts off talking to a "six/seven" year old in language you would deem appropriate, by the end the kid is responding like an adult in order to progress the story. It's just ridiculous.
I was so disappointed by this book, I thought it sounded awesome and it had rave reviews on goodreads (which has now gone in the favourites bin!) it's not twisty if you are used to dealing with surprise endings books and films. TBH it's seven hours of "oh i wonder if he is insane" followed by a remainder of "i've lost the will to live, i don't care if i am right or not" I will not put spoilers on here but I am just saying this is a guaranteed returned credit book
