Publisher's Summary

I'm a therapist, and I work with the most dangerous patients.

I've seen it all.... A boy who planned to be the next school shooter. A patient with OCD whose loved ones really did suffer every time he missed a ritual. A choir boy who claimed he was being molested - not by a priest - but by God Himself. A patient with PTSD who gave me nightmares. A husband and wife who accused each other of abuse, and only one of them was telling the truth. 

And how could I ever forget Patient #220. 

The problem is, my patients have a habit of dying. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the common denominator. Or maybe that's just the cost of taking on exceptionally broken clients. 

Either way, I'll never stop trying to help.

Remember — it’s fiction

At first I thought that this book was a real account of a therapists wildest patients and I wondered how many ethical violations that was... upon further investigation I realized that this was originally a reddit thread. It’s clear that even if the original author was using characters based off of real patients that the book highly dramatizes and fictionalizes these characters and events. I found some of the stories very suspenseful and thrilling and others to be a little cheesy but overall I liked it and I found myself wanting to listen to it while I drove, worked out, or even before bed. I recommend!

Fiction? Nonfiction? Real Doc? WHO KNOWS?!

Excellent foray into my first audio book--COULD NOT stop listening (finished it in one shot, with one short bathroom break)!

Hell of a title, but painfully dumb story.

Wow. It's hard to listen to a story with a protagonist who believes he's smarter than everyone else but is completely incompetent. The whole thing plays like one of those Valedictorian speeches about the meaning of life during a High School Graduation ceremony.

Not based on reality

As long as you don’t mind outlandish stories that are not based in reality it is enjoyable but not for me. Good narration though.

My New Favorite

My friend suggested this book to me a while ago and I kept getting ads for it. I had a 7 hour drive ahead of me and music and podcasts just weren’t doing it for me anymore. I downloaded Audible and this was the one I chose as my free book. I’m so glad I did. The narrator has a voice to match Dr.Harper perfectly. The twists are so well written. The character developments are amazing. I finished the book during the trip and listened to it again on my trip back home. I can’t wait until the second book is on here!

Wow!!!

Had to take a long ride with my daughter after not much sleep. Got this book. My daughter and I were mesmerized. We didn’t want to get out of the car because the story wasn’t over.
My daughter downloaded the audible app just to finish the story. Can’t wait til the next group of stories comes out.
Unpredictable, fresh.

Dreadful, cliche and childish

I really should have done more research, this audiobook is up there with some of the worst I have ever come across. The stories themselves are terribly cliche and more akin to a 10 year old writing. The book is disjointed and tenuous at the best of times. I was truly expecting the ending to be a long the lines of ‘I woke up and it was all a dream’

Sadly this is a book with adult content levelled at children and I cannot recommend it whatsoever.

Fun! But a bit silly at times

I was hoping for a psychological thriller from the title. The story is more of a detective mystery. Still fun! But a bit more silly than I thought it would be. Don't go in expecting a realistic story.

The narrative does not make sense

The timeline does not make any sense. Characters change wildly as well as their motivations.

Read it at reddit, bought it at audible

I bought this just for the note but I am pleasantly surprised at the audio book since the expressions seems more brighter than when you just read it. Overall, I enjoyed the special end note and will support more of Dr Harper's patient file!

Couldn’t turn it off!

Was gripping and I think the short stories are perfect, they make it a lot easier to follow the story. Especially for someone like myself who doesn’t read or listen to books often! Some of the twists are just genius!

Loved it!!!

reads like fantasy

was interested to hear about real troubles a professional would find treating people struggling wit real mental illness rather than sensationalised stereotypes
