My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Dr. David Edminson is a psychologist that instead of working in a cushy office for rich clients he has chosen to work on skid row out of the back of his van. His office hours are at night so as to be able to treat the people of the streets that have no other way to seek mental help.

When a body turns up David gets involved in the investigation of a serial killer who seems to be targeting prostitutes and strippers. Along with his friends an LAPD detective and an ER physician David helps with the case but also discovers some facts about his own family sending him in search for the truth.

The Midnight Shrink wasn’t a bad read overall but it’s one that I have to rate with how I felt throughout the read. I just never really could get into the story at all although I’m sure others may very well really enjoy it.

One of the things about this that bothered me was the excessive language often used. I’m not one to complain too much about cussing in books but I’m not also a fan of characters that f this or f that every other word and there was a few involved in here.

I think I just found myself disconnected overall with the story from the beginning when things like the language of some of David’s patients became involved. I was quite often bored and just waiting for the tell me what happened so I can finish instead of invested in the story all the way through.

Overall, not my cup of tea unfortunately but I’m sure others may enjoy.

I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
