Where to start with HELLO AGAIN? I can only say you will be
on on the edge of your seat from beginning to end!
For those new to Dr. Evelyn Talbot and Hanover House: Evelyn
has dedicated her life to studying the worst serial killers,
but the one she wants most is the one that attacked her.
Hanover House is a high-security prison in Alaska that
houses these psychos and she is the resident psychiatrist.
Her newest resident has been dubbed the Zombie Maker for his
penchant for performing lobotomies on his victims via an
ice-pick. Dr. Lyman Bishop was a brilliant cancer researcher
and is either more cunning than any she has dealt with or
... he is really innocent?
HELLO AGAIN is an amazing read. You will delve into the
psychological world as you follow Evelyn through her days.
Her past haunts her, but she perseveres in her study. I
think she is trying to figure out why Jasper, her boyfriend
at the time, killed three of her friends and tortured and
left her for dead when she was just 16.
There is a very sweet romance going on between her and
Amarok Murphy, a local cop, who isn't thrilled with her
study but has come to believe in her. I completely enjoyed
the touches of normal including the moments of "fear" that
Evelyn felt when Amarok's old girlfriend comes back to town.
There is a lot of tension that readers will feel, in her
work dealing with her "patients", other doctors, her lover,
who she is really learning to believe in and the townsfolk.
The good doctor is being accepted more into the lives of
those of the town, but one problem could set them against
her and the dangers of the House.
Although this is a standalone book, I might suggest, just
for ease, that readers might want to read this series in
order. If this is the first of the series fear not for
author Brenda Novak knows how to spin into her story enough
facts to help you keep your balance and keep you following
If you want to study crazy people, get involved in
investigative procedures, get the experience of a small town
in Alaska, enjoy touches of sweet and steamy romance, and
feel the fear that only a book about serial killers can give
you then HELLO AGAIN will do all that and more.
From NYT bestseller Brenda Novak comes the next installment
of Dr. Evelyn Talbot and her murderous home for psychopaths
in Hello Again.
SHE CAN MAKE SENSE OF A COMPLEX CRIMINAL MIND.
Evelyn Talbot, a psychiatrist at a maximum-security prison
in Alaska, studies some of the world's worst serial killers.
But she’s about to meet her most elusive patient at Hanover
House yet: Dr. Lyman Bishop, AKA the Zombie Maker given his
fondness for performing ice-pick lobotomies on his victims.
A brilliant cancer researcher, Bishop is either the most
cunning psychopath Evelyn has ever encountered—or he is
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CRIMINAL CAN SEE INTO HER OWN?
When a new ice-pick fatality occurs, it seems Bishop really
was wrongly convicted. Except...Evelyn has a personal
connection to the victim and that suggests the killer
may be someone from her own past: Jasper Moore, her high
school boyfriend who tortured her and left her for dead when
she was only sixteen. Jasper also murdered three of her
friends—and was never caught. Is he trying to send a message
with this copycat crime? The only thing Evelyn knows for
sure is that if Jasper is on her trail, she might not
be able to escape again . . .
