Publisher's Summary

As a forensic psychiatrist at New York's leading institution of its kind, Dr. Lily Dominick has evaluated the mental states of some of the country's most dangerous psychotics. But the strangely compelling client she interviewed today - a man with no name, accused of the most twisted crime - struck her as somehow different from the others, despite the two impossible claims he made. First, that he is more than 200 years old and personally inspired Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Bram Stoker in creating the three novels of the 19th century that define the monstrous in the modern imagination. Second, that he's Lily's father. To discover the truth - behind her client, her mother's death, herself - Dr. Dominick must embark on a journey that will threaten her career, her sanity, and ultimately her life.

Fusing the tension of a first-rate thriller with a provocative take on where thrillers come from, The Only Child will keep you up until its last unforgettable revelation.

    "Chilling"

    Could not put this down. This particular genre is fascinating to me and always has been. There were times in the telling by Christina where I felt like I was standing next to the demonic presence of Michael as he spoke to his daughter. The part where Lilly reads the letter from Michael on the airplane is especially creepy and well done. Nice big twist at the end. Very entertaining.

    "Interesting Concept; Poorly Executed"
    Any additional comments?

    Going into it, I didn't see the actual story until it was too late. I was somewhat disappointed and thought about turning it off. But as it went on, I became more emotionally invested. You could see the plot and ending from a mile away. It was still entertaining. Overall, MEH
