Every Fifteen Minutes (Mass Market)
May 2015 Indie Next List
“Have you ever read a book that stayed with you during the day while you were working, going
about your daily routine? A book that made you want to turn on the news to see what was happening in the characters' lives - even though you knew that you were just reading a novel? Scottoline's latest, Every Fifteen Minutes, made me do just that! The story of Chief of Psychiatry Eric Parish, his troubled patient, Max, and a murder for which Dr. Parish is suddenly seen as a 'person of interest,' along with other trumped-up charges against him, will not let readers put this book down until the stunning conclusion.”

“A sock-’em stand-alone…The red herrings come fast and furious.”—People (Pick of the Week)
They never see me coming. . .because I’m already there.
Dr. Eric Parrish, a brilliant and caring psychiatrist, has been unknowingly targeted by a sociopath. His hands are already full, having recently separated from his wife and trying his best to be a single dad to his seven-year-old daughter. And now Eric faces a new challenge in the form of a troubled teenaged boy who harbors an obsessive crush on a girl. Because of secrets that this boy divulges in therapy, Eric grows concerned for the girl’s safety and becomes embroiled in a dangerous dilemma: Should he report his potentially dangerous patient to the authorities?
Just as Eric reaches his decision, the unimaginable happens. . .and the game is on. The clock begins ticking, and Eric finds himself plunged into a living nightmare—and at the hands of a sociopath bent on destroying his practice, his family, and his life.
