Dante's PoisonBook - 2014
Mark Angelotti, a psychologically troubled and newly blinded Chicago psychiatrist, is hired to help with the defense of legal eagle Jane Barrett for the murder of journalist Rory Gallagher. It looks like Jane is being framed; Mark's friend Hallie is Jane's mentee, and she begs Mark to provide expert testimony. Unfortunately, a vicious attack on Mark and Hallie leaves her in a coma. Mark knows Hallie recognized the attacker, but he, of course, can't. Concurrently, two troubling suicides by teen patients of one of Mark's professional colleagues builds a strong secondary plot that might connect with the journalist's murder.
