Impulse to Murder
A mystery novel. Washington DC. On a winter evening, Sophie Myerson's tranquil life as a staff psychologist at a mental health clinic is thrust into turmoil. Without any obvious reason, her fiance breaks off their engagement. Stunned and distraught, Sophie runs out of the clinic and literally stumbles over a corpse. The victim is a young woman Sophie's met before. Soon another young woman is murdered, a patient at her clinic. Sophie doesn't know who to trust. The murder suspects are all men she works with and socializes with, none of whom she thought violent. She desperately wants to believe the two murders are unrelated events and the tall, willowy victims were killed by their romantic partners. Otherwise, a serial killer is hunting down young women within Sophie's world. She doesn't fit the profile of the victims--stress eating ice cream and muffins has made her anything but willowy, she's always been short, and now she's single--but is that enough to keep her safe?
