    Pretty good Of course, when I first started the book I didn t like it, because I used to work in Community Mental Health and thought some facts and perspectives were off As I read on, realizing on a deeper level that this was the 80 s, I let go a little and enjoyed the story Very good plot, excellent twists, and some likeable and chilling characters There was a lot I did not see coming, and other things I did figure out, but the author m

    Write a book description that mentions psychology, cults and suspense and you ll probably have, at the very least, piqued my interest.This book is set in Oregon in 1989 Laura Covington is a psychologist who has given up private practice to join a community mental health unit, moving from a city to a small town with her mother and 5 year old Wade, who she became guardian of when a client died.Her new clients range from the slightly odd to the ser

    The author sent me this book about 18 months ago and I tossed it into the pile as just another thriller with an uninspired cover Okay, that may have been a mistakeThis was an awesome suspense thriller There s some tough topics in here dealing with child abuse, but it s not excessive for the reader There is a lot of information about cults as well as Multiple Personality Disorder and I found that stuff really interesting it really added to my understandi

    A disturbing d but novel by Linda Myers.Based around a cluster of multiple personality patients this story raises interesting and worrying questions about the influence of cults in our society.Tense and surprisingly hard to put down, I was trapped in this book from the start Not to say I read it in one sitting The subject and the writing is intense and I needed some breaks from the emotional stress Now, a week after I finished reading Lessons of Evil , it is st

    This was a fascinating thriller withtwists and turns than a NASCAR race It took me a while to really get into it as the author had to develop a lot of characters and some aspects of psychology that most of us are unfamiliar with.As the story progressed I found myselfandsympathetic with not only the positive but also the negative characters It was easy to identify with not only Dr Covington and her family but the quirkly mental patients took on endearing characteristics

    This chilling novel has an easy to empathize with main character with believable family members and friends and an intriguing description of Multiple Personality Disorder and how a psychologist might work with clients with horrific abuse backgrounds The story darkens as it describes the realities of human evil and the purposeful abuse of innocents The author writes with both humor and warmth about a mental health setting in the 1980 s and with a steady and clear description of

    A great book about situational ethics and the mysteries of human psychology Featuring a number of well developed, strong female characters, this book was a satisfying read.It was so incredibly tense and evocative that I had to stop myself from reading this fascinating novel too close to bedtime if I wanted to get to sleep I don t usually read books like this, but it was so compelling Note that at the end of Lessons of Evil there is a preview of Linda B Myer s newest novel, Fun House C

    This book deals with scary themes the side of good has to fight very hard And does it win Maybe There is humor when you most need it gag me with a spoon but mostly a heart thumping adventure.

    implausible story of a cult leader who intentionally abuses children in order for them to split into multiple personalities and the psychologist who takes on the leader and his victims.
