Olga Núñez Miret: Escaping Psychiatry

Psychiatry, law and writing. These are three of my favorite subjects to read about. Escaping Psychiatry: Beginnings includes all three. The novella is as much a psychological thriller as it is a legal one.
Mary, the protagonist, is a very relatable and likeable character. In attempts to get away from her career as a psychiatrist and shift to one in writing, Mary is distracted into her role as psychiatrist and finds herself entangled in a court case involving a famous writer accused of murder.
The plot is interesting and the author instills enough suspense to make you want to continue reading. The author, herself a forensic psychiatrist, brings credibility and authenticity to the protagonist.
In this prequel, the author has set the foundation for the remainder in her series:

“Escaping Psychiatry. Beginnings is the prequel to Escaping Psychiatry a volume collecting three stories where Mary and her psychiatric expertise are called to help in a variety of cases, from religious and race affairs, to the murder of a policeman, and in the last case she gets closer than ever to a serial killer.”

  1. This does sound interesting, Carol. I like it that the emphasis seems to be on the characters as much as on the plot. And a writer accused of murder… Intriguing!

  3. Thanks so much, Carol. You’re very kind. I recently published another book in this series, so Mary keeps going strong. Thanks to Debby, Janet, and Margot as well. ♥

    Thanks so much to Carol Balawyder for sharing a lovely review of the prequel of my series Escaping Psychiatre (Beginnings). And it’s FREE!

  5. Ah, another book to add to my TBR tower 🙂 I love mysteries and I do love when there’s a different angle, in this case a forensic psychiatrist. Very nice review. Just enough information to whet my interest.

    • I like that you referred to your TBR as a tower. You will find that Olga does a great job with all her characters and as writers, she adds that extra interest not only by centering the crime around a famous writer but also that her protagonist is an aspiring writer. Very relatable. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 🙂
