Trance Alex Madison #1

Covers a frightening reality of secret research and cruel experimentation and the perpetrators are closer to home than he could ever have imaginedToo late Alex learns the true extent of what Victor is capable of and who he’s after With everything he holds dear at risk can Alex take control of a dangerous mind before it takes control of h Despite a promising start this novel slowly devolves into a bad episode of the X files A celebrated clinical psychologist Alex takes on the rare forensic case He is to examine a strange Romanian prisoner who was found at the scene of a brutal murder suicide Seems like a lot of people kill themselves when this prisoner is around But Alex has all the usual baggage a divorced wife he still loves a precocious brat plenty of angst and guilt which he assuages with an addiction to Xanax The case unfolds predictably with this supposedly brilliant man doing incredibly stupid things I was disappointed with this book the prose is flat and Alex is a bore The confinement of the prisoner is definitely not believable at most he was a witness and the immigration hold was just a sham and a weak one at that The plot was one I ve seen and enjoyed on the X Files among others There was potential but it was uickly lost A slog to read through pass
