Publisher's Summary

Zack Tripler, a psychiatrist, admits to the hospital Youssef al Saud, an agitated young Saudi American, in the midst of what appears to be a psychotic break. Youssef has been hearing voices and was found hiding with his laptop in the woods from unidentified assailants whom he believes are trying to kill him. He’s found coded messages on the laptop that he suspects portend a terrorist plot. 

When Youssef is found dead, either by suicide or murder, Zack develops symptoms similar to Youssef’s, hearing voices and catching glimpses of his dead patient, whom he believes is trying to kill him, then witnesses the murder of another of his patients. He becomes entangled with Youssef’s widow Jamilah in her efforts to solve the mystery of her husband’s death and the coded message on his computer, but nothing in Zack’s world is as it appears as he swings between concern for her safety and suspicion that she is responsible for Youssef’s death and part of the terrorist plot that he suspected. 

Zack narrates his own story, his descent into madness, and the terror he endures as he struggles to hang onto the last remnants of his sanity.

In Treatment, with a Twist

With Shared Madness, Harvard educated psychiatrist turned storyteller Rick Moskovitz draws on his clinical experience of listening to patients for over 40 years and delivers a fast-paced and completely unputdownable psychological thriller filled with twists and turns.
In Shared Madness we follow what seems to be the descent into madness and paranoia of a psychiatrist called Zack Tripler. This is what happens when both the patient and the doctor go absolutely nuts! I won't tell you anything more about the plot, as I don't want to spoil the discovery process for you.
I suggest that you don't read the Publisher's Summary as it also contains lots of spoilers. All you need to know is that Shared Madness is very well written and that by the end of this wild ride you'll have answers for all your questions.
Actor, writer, voice-over artist, musician and narrator Joe Smith brings his considerable talent to the audiobook production of Shared Madness, delivering a superb performance that delights and entertains.
By assigning credible voices for both male and female characters, plus also switching seamlessly between different accents, Mr. Smith creates an immersive narrative experience for the listener. With characters that feel alive, a fast moving plot and a few surprises on the way, Shared Madness is the perfect audiobook to spend your Sunday afternoon with.

Must Read!!

This is a wonderfully written mystery with many twists and turns! Just when I thought I had figured it out a twist proved me wrong. I can’t recommend this book enough!

Very Interesting Story!

After reading the blurb, I was left on the fence about whether or not I'd like this story, if it actually sounded interesting to me. I wanted something different so I asked for a code.

I liked it. I love psychology and anything surrounding that field so this was an interesting listen-to. Hearing how an author comes up with their book idea is a bonus.

The narrator did a great job! I'd listen to him again.

Questions/Comments:

Upon waking up, Zack hears voices and thinks they're coming from his cell phone. So he turns it off. He goes into the kitchen, then back to bed. There was no mention of him turning it back on. Yet his alarm on his phone goes off the next morning.

A while after getting out of the hospital, Zack is thinking back to what took place at the carnival place. He remembers hallucinating in the hospital and the doctor telling him it was probably related to his concussion or other. Yet, I don't remember him ever bringing up the hallucinations while in the hospital.

The whole infatuation Zack had for Joe's wife was questionable, in my opinion. I honestly couldn't figure out why Zack seemed obsessed with her.

I received a free audiobook code in exchange for an honest review.

Fast paced an action packed

I love books by this author. I have read a western and now this book and have loved both of them. First of all you don’t know who to suspect until the very end and when you find out I know for me it blew me away! This book is so good the narrator was so good at doing all the different voices the author had a great plot I am just enamored at the talent I sometimes see in authors and the Raiders especially when they are on the same book. As it is in this case. I also enjoyed the beginning where he describes not only his authority to write about psychiatric issues, but then when he further explains the plot. So enjoyable.
