Review: The Halo Effect by MJ Rose

  • Publisher: Mira (July 1, 2005)
  • ISBN-10: 0778321975

  • Morgan Snow is a professional therapist specializing in sexual issues. When her client (an expensive call girl who is writing a book about her lifestyle) disappears, it seems possible that one of her clients is involved. Also, that it may be connected to a series of ritualistic murders of prostitutes. Morgan feels her only way to help Cleo is to investigate herself because she can't legally or ethically violate her patient's confidences.

    This book is interesting in many ways. The first is how it switches from Morgan's first person point-of-view to third person POV when focusing on the police investigation to actual book excerpts from the expose' in question.

    Additionally, I liked both the pacing of the story and the level of insight Morgan's character showed.

    I am not sure whether or not the story actually needed the romantic element in it, but that might just be because it seems an overdone theme to me.

    Overall though, I really enjoyed the book.

    The funny this is that I loved her book Lip Service when I read it several years ago, and can't imagine why it has taken me so long to read another. LOL
