Synopsis: IN SESSION from international bestseller M.J. Rose, features the return of Dr. Morgan Snow, in a brand-new story collection!
As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds.
In these stories the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.
Those characters are, of course, familiar to readers as the creations, respectively, of NYT bestselling authors Lee Child, Barry Eisler, and Steve Berry. All three swore that their characters would never agree to therapy - unless Rose found a way to get then there. And she did.
In EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, a woman seeks help for her lover, and sends Dr. Snow overseas on a most unusual house call....
DECISIONS, DECISIONS where Barry Eisler's John Rain forces Dr. Snow out of her own comfort zone, and into the world of a former patient's worst nightmare...
And KNOWING YOU'RE ALIVE with Lee Child's Jack Reacher results in revelations for both the injured Dr. Snow, and her unexpected savior/patient...
Review: As a fan of Ms. Rose's and Dr. Morgan Snow, I was excited to read In Session where Dr. Snow was able to get some of the most interesting characters in fiction "on the couch", so to speak. I was definitely not disappointed!! Three short vignettes show a new side to Cotton Malone, John Rain, Jack Reacher, and even Dr. Morgan Snow. I'm a big fan of Steve Berry's Cotton Malone books, but I was definitely intrigued enough by the other two characters that I'll end up picking up their books too! This pinnacle achievement for Ms. Rose (and one other fan-fic authors aspire to reach) was well-written and fulfilling, even as short stories.
