Summary:

A troubled psychiatrist turns investigator when a young patient confesses to murder.

Psychiatrist Mark Angelotti knows that genes don't lie. Or do they?

Back at work after a devastating illness, Mark believes he has put his past behind him when he is asked to examine Charlie Dickerson, a mentally handicapped teenager whose wealthy mother insists he is a victim of sexual abuse. Mark diagnoses a different reason for Charlie's ills, but his prescription turns deadly when a teacher is murdered and Charlie confesses to the police.

Volunteering to testify on Charlie's behalf, Mark's worst fears are realized when paternity tests show the victim was pregnant with Charlie's child. Now it's up to Mark to prove Charlie's innocence in a case where nothing is as first meets the eye.

Not even genes-Mark's or Charlie's-can be trusted to shine a light on the truth.

"A taut, compelling, very moving debut novel that invites us into a murder, and into the life of a wonderful main character. This is an astonishingly accomplished and assured novel; the fact it's a first novel is wonderful news for those of us who love crime fiction."-Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author
