This novella held my attention from the first page until the last. Dr. Audrey Gilbert is a Paranormal Psychiatrist working at the Corvey Institute in Chicago and has the ability to see into her patients’ souls allowing her to mend the damage in their minds. Her record has been perfect, but one misdiagnosis will cost her everything. Her job allows her to pay for her mother’s care and her sister’s schooling but now her one mistake has gotten her fired.

Audrey is offered a chance to redeem herself by accepting an assignment in Marblehead, Ohio, a remote town on Lake Erie. She is required to help Kevin Jorgensen, a class 10 psychic with power to cause her brain damage or death but since Paranormal Psychiatrist are not in much demand getting her job back is imperative.

Kevin is known to be a recluse and an accident a few years ago left him near death and with his brain wiped. according to Audrey’s boss CMU, Cognitive Mind Unit, an elite group of psychics wants him back and it is up to her to help him with his PTSD and the other mental issues he is suffering from. Audrey is surprised by his reaction to her and as they work together, they discover systematic betrayal, lies and uncover secrets from their past.

A short story that is complex and surprising. I didn’t want it to be over but like they say, “all good things must come to an end.”
