Lying on the Couch by Irvin D. Yalom

Who better to write a psychological thriller than a real life mental health professional? Yalom effortlessly utilizes his knowledge of psychoanalytic techniques and APA ethical considerations to grant the reader a view from the "other side of the couch." I found myself riveted by this voyeuristic look at psychoanalysis, watching helplessly as the webs of client deceit become increasingly entangled.
