Dangerous Minds
by Priscilla Masters

Can a psychiatrist prevent a crime when it exists only in a patient’s mind?

When she receives a wedding invitation from one of her former patients, forensic psychiatrist Dr Claire Roget is more than a little alarmed. Highly intelligent and manipulative, Jerome Barclay suffers from a severe personality disorder. Although she has never been able to prove it, Claire believes him to be highly dangerous, responsible for at least three suspicious deaths – and she fears for the safety of his new bride. What’s more, Jerome seems to know rather too much about Claire’s personal and professional life, including intimate details concerning her other patients. What sinister game is he playing?

With no proof as to Jerome’s possibly murderous intentions, Claire’s hands are tied. Can she prevent a tragedy unfolding? And is Claire herself at risk?


“Reminiscent of Michael Robotham’s Joe O’Loughlin series, this is an outstanding, heart pounding debut.”

R. Smith, Librarian

“With its unresolved personal story and chilling conclusion, the novel suggests that Masters has another successful, character-driven series ahead”


“An interesting cast of damaged characters”

Publishers Weekly

“The sinister Jerome and his intrigues weaves through the story of Claire's professional and private life like a dark thread and his antics keep you on the edge of your seat while you're reading . . . I thought the insight into mental health was intriguing and that alone made the book worthwhile reading for me.”

J Weekes, reviewer
