"Set during the short, dark days of a Michigan winter, The Mind’s Eye takes the reader into the psychoanalytic consulting room and into the mind of Ivan Weiss, a gifted, but troubled, psychoanalyst. Weiss’ life is disintegrating. His daughter was recently raped, the clinic he directs is facing a sexual harassment charge, and paranoid worries about his wife’s fidelity, which had plagued him in the past, are resurfacing. When his wife disappears, leaving an enigmatic note, and his daughter goes missing, his world totally flies apart. The story ranges from the quiet of the analytic consulting room in Ann Arbor to the south of France to a police chase in the devastated areas of downtown Detroit. It is about the present and secrets from the past.
In the tradition of Jonathan Kellerman, Stephen White, and Irvin Yalom,
The Mind’s Eye looks into the mind of the analyst, as he struggles to understand his patients and himself. The characters’ inner lives and the shadows cast by their pasts are drawn with an analyst’s eye. As well as entertaining readers outside the mental health field, the novel has much to teach student psychotherapists about the psychoanalytic process.
