Self-Defenseby Jonathan Kellerman
Synopses & Reviews
Dr. Alex Delaware doesnt see many private patients anymore, but the young woman called Lucy is an exception. So is her dream. Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex by Los Angeles police detective Milo Sturgis. A juror at the agonizing trial of a serial killer, Lucy survived the trauma only to be tormented by a recurring nightmare: a young child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act.
Now Lucys dream is starting to disrupt her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The power of the dream, its grip on Lucys emotions, suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It may be the repressed childhood memory of something very real. Something like murder.
A woman suffering from recurring nightmares sees a psychiatrist. He traces them back to a crime committed 20 years earlier and goes to the scene to obtain confirmation. A tale of psychological suspense by the author of When the Bough Breaks.
