Caddy Rowland created a character, Connor Reed, that is mentally disturbed and violent, but for whom readers actually have empathy. His tortured soul, the voices in his head and his inability to distinguish fiction from reality keep readers in complete suspense. The main character, Connor Reed, starts as a high school student who longs to be a rock and roll star and is committed to playing his guitar. In school he is a loner with peculiar actions and awkward mannerisms. Even his mother, who blames him for his father leaving and her lonely life, is afraid of him and feels that he is dangerous, Instead turning to religion, she punishes him for any indiscretions. Finally, when Connor begs her for a companion, she gives in and buys him a dog. Connor’s skewed reality is so out of check, however, that he terrorizes the dog and his mother. To retaliate, she locks him in the closet for hours without bathroom breaks or food. No one cares about him except for his girlfriend Candy. For some reason, Candy is able to love him for what he is, a brilliant but tortured soul. In all his delirium, he has a passion for women, who are drawn to his kind nature and soft spoken manner. He is devilishly good looking with an amazing body and a gift for music and playing the guitar. So when he is eventually incarcerated in an asylum, his doctor, renowned psychiatrist Dr. Brunswick, and his nurse Shannon fall in love with Connor’s dual personality. Women are attracted to the lunatic within him and are convinced that only they will be able to save him. But can Candy, Dr. Brunswick or Shannon be able to save him? Despite knowing how disturbed he is, the reader can’t help but have sympathy for Connor and in some ways understand his plight. It is a page turner and one that is very hard to put down. I would give this book 4 ½ stars. About the Author: Caddy Rowland is the author of Candy, a psychological suspense novel. She takes a unique look at all the ways people process life, how they love, hate and exist in a sometimes very dangerous world. Caddy has always been a nonconformist. She pushes the envelope and with it the readers’ emotions by showing that even the villains have soft spots; although many times her characters don’t live happily ever after. Her characters challenge boundaries and insist that prejudices are left behind. Other books she has written include Shame, Seduction and Solace. Caddy Rowland also writes gay m/m romance under the name of Sibley Jackson.

    As someone who loves reading books on criminal psychology this was a great read. You want to hate Connor Reed for the atrocities he's committed, but as the story unfolds, you see what turned him into an unpredictable and dangerous man. The book is told in snippets of past and present, but is never confusing. It is perfectly woven into a great narrative that gives insight into Connor's present state of mind, and then takes you back and forth to the events that shaped his life. Great read!
