The Therapist by S.A. Falk

I couldn’t tear my eyes away from this gripping thriller that had me on the edge of my seat. The detailed narrative captured my attention right from the beginning. The main character, a head psychiatrist at a maximum-security mental hospital in Southern California, is plunged into a chilling investigation after a notorious killer arrives at their facility.

The dark and twisted narrative is fueled by the killer’s past as a death metal musician, accused of gruesome crimes, keeping you guessing until the end. Falk’s impressive talent for exploring the minds of the psychiatrist and the serial killer created an enthralling suspense that kept me eagerly flipping through pages.

The story became more realistic thanks to the meticulous attention to detail and the authentic depiction of mental health professionals and their challenges. Readers are captivated by the book’s relentless pacing, which is enhanced by its fast-paced narrative and engaging plot twists. While some may have anticipated the ending, I personally found it to be a surprising and satisfying conclusion that effectively wrapped up the story.

For those who enjoy thrillers and psychological suspense, “The Therapist” is a book you need to read.

S.A. Falk has become a must-buy author for me, no questions asked.

Many thanks to S.A. Falk @Stormbooks_co & @Netgalley for a review copy.


About the Author

S.A. Falk has been captivated by the criminal mind since he was a teenager. After reading The Silence of the Lambs, Two of a Kind: The Hillside Strangler, and The Search for the Green River Killer in high school, Falk decided to pursue a career in correctional psychiatry.

From 2007 to 2012, Falk studied Psychology, Neuroscience, and Criminology. During this time, he not only studied serial killers and their pathologies, but he also studied the anatomy and physiology of mental illness. To further gain experience in the field, Falk worked as a mental health counselor at a residential treatment facility for children who were victims of physical and/or sexual abuse. This experience inspired him to redirect the focus of his career and pursue work with young people.

After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology & Neuroscience, Falk wanted to combine his passion for counseling children with his long-time love of literature by becoming a high school English teacher. He continued his education and received a Master’s degree in Secondary Education in 2015. For the last eight years, he has taught high school English, becoming an expert on American and British literature.
