Blog Tour: Review & Audio Excerpt of The Ninth Session by Deborah Serani


Author: Deborah Serani
Narrator: Deborah Serani
Length: 6 hours 62 minutes
Publisher: TouchPoint Press2021
Genre: Suspense
Release date: Apr. 16, 2021

An edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller that brings a unique mix of psychotherapy and sign language and Coda culture. Just when you think you have it figured out, think again!

Dr. Alicia Reese takes on a new patient. Lucas Ferro suffers with crippling anxiety, and as sessions progress, he begins to share the reasons why he's struggling. As Ferro's narrative becomes more menacing, Reese finds herself wedged between the cold hard frame of professional ethics and the integrity of personal truth. And, finally, when Ferro reveals his secrets, Reese learns how far she's willing to go, willing to risk and willing to lose to do the right thing.

The Ninth Session is a psychological thriller that follows psychologist Alicia as she digs into the psyche of new patient Lucas.  He is struggling with crippling anxiety.  As the sessions progress, Alicia begins to sense that she may be in danger.  I thought this was an enjoyable thriller.  While it was a bit predictable, I still had fun being in Alicia's head as she pieced things together.  I also liked the exploration of ethics within the world of therapy. I'm not sure how I would handle the situation that Alicia found herself in, but it's something to ponder.  I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the experience.
