The Analyst

A friend of mine who is a writer told me about this book and I am very happy she did because this is simply one of the best thrillers I’ve read. This book is presented in a fascinating way and totally captured my imagination. I was captivated from the beginning to the end!

Here is the summary ;

‘Happy fifty-third birthday, Doctor. Welcome to the first day of your death. You ruined my life. And now I fully intend to ruin yours.

‘You have exactly one fortnight, starting tomorrow morning at 6 a.m., to discover who I am. When you succeed you must purchase one of those tiny ads at the bottom of the New York Times front page, and print my name there.

‘If you do not succeed, then . . . you will take note that the second sheet of this letter contains the names of fifty-two of your relatives. If you are unable to purchase the ad as described, then you will have this choice: kill yourself immediately or I will destroy one of these innocent people.’

Until the moment he opens the letter, New York psychologist Dr. Frederick Starks has led a quiet and, so he believes, blameless life. He has no idea why he’s being judged by this unknown tormentor a former patient – who then lethally begins to demonstrate the potential of his, or her, threats. As the layers of Starks’s carefully constructed life are stripped from him, he quickly finds himself a powerless pawn in a psychopath’s devious game of vengeance.

This book is fantastic and very well written, a must read !!

C’est une amie écrivaine qui m’a conseillé ce livre et j’en suis très heureuse, car c’est tout simplement un des meilleurs polar que j’ai lus. Ce livre est présenté de manière fascinante et a totalement capturé mon imagination. Je l’ai dévoré du début à la fin !

Voici le résumé ;

Heureux 53e anniversaire, docteur. Bienvenue au premier jour de votre mort. » Lorsque lui parvient cette mystérieuse lettre de menace, l’existence jusqu’alors prévisible du docteur Starks bascule dans le chaos. Ce psychanalyste à succès se trouve subitement entraîné dans un jeu morbide conçu par l’homme qui se fait appeler Rumpelstiltskin, comme le mauvais génie du conte des frères Grimm. Starks dispose de deux semaines pour identifier Rumpelstiltskin et les raisons de sa colère. S’il y parvient, aucun mal ne lui sera fait. Mais en cas d’échec, l’inconnu tuera l’un après l’autre les proches du docteur, jusqu’à ce qu’il accepte de se donner la mort…

C’est un livre fantastique qu’on arrive à peine a déposer, je le conseille fortement pour ceux et celles qui aiment les polars.
