The only Child by Andrew Pyper (33)

I decided in the past few weeks to take out a few books by Andrew Pyper.  So, I will review them here.  This is his newest book.

Andrew Pyper is a master storyteller. His stories are scary and involved. One can even have nightmares about the storylines.

The premise for the story is quite scary: What if your father wasn’t who he said he was?  What if you carried secrets within your blood that you didn’t know about? That would certainly scare anyone right out of their wits.

Dr. Lily Dominick has seen her share of bizarre cases as a forensic psychiatrist working with some of New York’s most dangerous psychotic criminals. But nothing can prepare Lily for her newest patient.

Client 4687-A is nameless. He insists that he is not human and believes that he was not born but created more than two hundred years ago.

As Lily listens to this man describe the twisted crime he’s committed, she can’t shake the feeling that he’s come for her, especially once he reveals something she would have thought impossible: he knew her mother.

Lily was only six years old when her mother was violently killed in what investigators concluded was a bear attack. But even though she was there, even though she saw it, Lily has never been certain of what really happened that night.

Now this man — a man she feels certain is different from all the others — may hold the answers to the questions she’s buried deep within herself all of her life.

This is a suspense type of story that will keep you at the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen until the very end.

Rating: 5 stars
