The protagonist, Dr. Marc Schlosser, is in trouble. His patient is an actor with an enormous ego and a lovely wife.
There are several elements at play, some vague reference to abuse to Marc’s teenaged daughter while on holiday at the summer house, and the death of the actor. We know from the beginning that Dr. Marc is accused of being involved in the actor’s death. None of this is spoiler.
The overall story was good, but it moved slowly, at a pace all its own-one too slow for me.
If you generally prefer your mysteries less literary and more action packed or at least less obtuse, read something else.
