Book 46
Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death, by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art...

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”

Michael J. Scott
The most useful therapy is one that can be applied to a wide range of client problems, is easy to learn, and produces lasting results following a brief intervention. The cognitive-behavioural approaches described in this volume probably come nearest to this ideal.

Originally published in 1989, this book begins with a description of the cognitive-behavioural revolution that had taken place in the decade prior to publication and provides therapists with the specifics of helping in four major areas: child behaviour problems, emotional disorders (depression and anxiety), interpersonal problems and addictive disorders.

Coverage of the major areas of concern begins in each case with an overview of theory and research in the specific domain, followed by detailed guidance for practice. The volume represents a synthesis of the author’s research and practice with patients in inner city Liverpool and with employees referred by major employers. The strategies described have been devised to take account of a wide variety of client social contexts and service delivery settings, and the strengths, pitfalls and practicalities of group cognitive-behavioural approaches are also discussed.

The reader is finally led into largely uncharted waters, the application of cognitive-behavioural approaches to schizophrenia, people with learning difficulties and the elderly.

Back in print, this title will still be of interest to students and practitioners in social work, clinical psychology, and community psychiatry.
