An Underwhelmingly Lackluster Reading Experience

Source: Author Website
Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline (St. Martin’s Press, 2015, 448pp.)

Dr. Eric Parrish has a lot going for him. The psychiatric unit he runs at a Philadelphia hospital has recently been ranked second in the nation, and he is universally adored by his colleagues, patients, and staff. In addition to his work at the hospital, he also sees patients privately. When one of these patients, a troubled teen named Max, begins a downward spiral following the death of his grandmother, Eric develops a fatherly interest in the young man’s welfare. Unfortunately, Max’s problems soon become his own, and before he knows it, Eric finds himself implicated in a shocking crime that could end his professional career. With mediocre writing and cardboard-thin characters, Every Fifteen Minutes makes for an underwhelmingly lackluster reading experience: great for passing the time, but hardly worth mentioning to your friends.
