"Compelling, graceful, and nearly impossible to put down."-Robert Parker, author of Widow's Walk
"No one burrows into the darkest recesses of the human mind as deeply as Keith Ablow."
-Tess Gerritsen, author of The Surgeon
"Keith Ablow is a master of psychological suspense. This is a dark, taut, terrifying novel, driven by a talented psychiatrist's insights into the human condition. Stoke up the fire, curl up with Compulsion, and be prepared for a sleepless night."-Michael Palmer, author of Fatal
"Frank Clevenger is a wonderfully flawed hero, as haunted by his own demons as the sociopaths he faces, and Ablow writes like a man possessed-with a pace so blistering the pages will all but singe your hands."-Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River
"Fast-paced and frightening, Compulsion is a novel that explores the very nature of evil itself. Psychiatrist Frank Clevenger is a hero with heart, soul-and brains."-Janet Evanovich, author of Hard Eight
"From the first sentence to the last, Compulsion is mesmerizing. A tense and sexy thriller stocked to the brim with juicy characters...featuring an utterly shocking, yet thoroughly convincing family of fiends...with deft intelligence, Ablow maps the torturous terrain of the darkest regions of the human heart."-James W. Hall, bestselling author of Blackwater Sound
"This series just keeps getting better. Frank Clevenger is a real original: a jeans-clad, black-turtleneck-wearing head shaven loner whose compassion for victims of violent crimes-and the perpetrators of those crimes-threatens to destroy him. Whether Clevenger is entirely fictional, or a reflection of his creator's dark side (Ablow is a practicing forensic psychiatrist), the upshot is the same: He's a brilliant creation and this is a brilliant novel."--Booklist (starred reviews)
"The present is wounded by the past in an expertly judged psychological thriller...a solid, satisfying case."--Kirkus Reviews
"The author, a practicing forensic psychiatrist, uses his extensive knowledge of mental illness and violence to lend authenticity to Compulsion, weaving a suspenseful mystery around riveting insights into the criminal mind. An engrossing thriller that belongs on your summer reading list"-Bookpage
"Action nimbly shifts from gritty urban Boston to window-dressed Nantucket, and the people and politics are realistically portrayed, including the ballsy but deeply flawed protagonist...this one scores as a great psychological mind-bender."--Publishers Weekly
