Publisher's Summary

A heartpounding glimpse into the world of forensic psychiatry, Kill Switch marks the powerful fiction debut of Neal Baer and Jonathan Greene - former executive producers of television’s acclaimed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Filled with breakneck suspense, vivid characters, and riveting detail, it is a mindbending thriller you’ll never forget.

Meet Claire Waters, a young, dedicated forensic psychiatrist with unnervingly personal insights into the criminal mind. Haunted by a disturbing childhood incident - and driven by her demons - Claire has always been drawn to those rare “untreatable” patients who seem to have no conscience or fear. She has a natural ability to put people at ease, to help them face their darkest secrets. But one shocking case could make or break her career - and it’s waiting for her in the psychiatric wing of New York City’s Rikers Island.

His name is Quimby. A deranged inmate whose boyish good looks hide a sordid history of dysfunction and abuse, Quimby triggers something in Claire she’d rather not face. As she tries to unlock Quimby’s past, she unwittingly reveals her own painful secrets - leaving herself dangerously vulnerable. For Claire, the patient’s obsessions are just the beginning. When the case propels her into the mind of another killer - a homicidal maniac who’s watching her every move - it could only end in madness, or murder, or both.

Brilliantly constructed and breathtakingly suspenseful, Kill Switch is a masterful combination of murder, mystery, and modern forensics that will keep you turning the pages to the final shocking conclusion.

Just TOO easy for Claire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book kept my attention and had so much potential. But, come on!!! Claire found a needle in a hay stack at least 3 times. No joke. She could of been a psychic. The middle was good, but the end just dragged. Just an ok kind of book.

ROMANCE JUNK AS THRILLER

CLUE #1 Baldacci raved about it, wouldn't know a decent book if it hit him in the face.
CLUE #2 Gratuitous blindness shtick the capzper.

his is a thinly-veiled romance novel they snuck into the thriller section. This can be found in the grocery store book dept.(sic).

Amazon (Audible) is doing this more and more frequently. They pump up this awful junk and sell it where it has no business being.

This book is embarrassingly bad!
