Primary Obsessions Charles Demers Canadian crime fiction

Playwright Charles Demers has created a crime novel in which the protagonist – cognitive behavioural therapist Annick Boudreau – faces not only physical danger from the Vancouver underworld, but the ethical quandaries involved in protecting her patient afflicted with obsessive, violent thoughts. Confident the man poses no real danger to anyone, she’s trying to keep him out of jail after it appears, to the police at least, that he murdered his irritating lowlife roommate. Alas, the police have found the therapy journal she asked him to keep, and the written record of his destructive thoughts has convinced them they’ve found their man. Author Charles Demers has a lively writing style and provides unusually realistic and witty dialog.
