Cuddy attempts to exonerate a boy who confessed to murder under hypnosis

William Daniels nearly didn’t make it to college. A black student raised in one of Boston’s roughest suburbs, he once barely skirted time in juvenile hall for gang activities. Pressure from his mother convinced William to straighten out, and he went on to study at a prestigious university. Years after his first brush with the law, William is in trouble again, and it will take more than a mother’s love to keep him free.


While hypnotized by his psychiatrist, William admits to shooting his girlfriend, producing the murder weapon and telling the doctor where to find the body. When he comes out of his state, William is in handcuffs and thinks he killed the girl. But private eye John Francis Cuddy doesn’t trust the psychiatrist, and risks everything to save this bright young man whose mind has been turned against him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You'll stay up late if you start reading this! PLOT OR PREMISE: John Cuddy gets asked by a friend to look into what appears to be an open-and-shut case -- a young impoverished black man tries to get ahead at university, dates a white co-ed, and then after she turns up dead, he confesses to the crime while holding the murder weapon. Everyone thinks he's guilty, including him. But Cuddy finds a strange group of people involved -- a whacked psychiatrist with strange ideas, an elderly fitness nut, a sports fan, seductive patients, and asundry lovers. . WHAT I LIKED: The main people were all well-characterized, although a few of them were a bit one-dimensional. Cuddy does a good job of detecting, pulling at a variety of strings until they unravel. Good back-stories for some of the other series characters. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Some old characters show up, kind of predictable. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I was not personal friends with the author, but I did follow him on social media.
