Chasing Shadows by Karen Harper. Published by MIRA

How ironic is it that forensic psychologist Claire Britten has her own debilitating neurological disorder? But if anything, Claire’s condition has made her more aware, more attune to her work as she struggles daily to cope with her own disorder. Nick Markwood is determined to have Claire on his “dream team” after her expert testimony gets one of his convictions overturned. Nick has a passion for investigating unsolved, or questionable deaths. With Claire on board, they head to the scene of their first investigation, St. Augustine, Florida. The case is so complex, so difficult, that Claire is having trouble keeping her own emotions and her condition under control. And when she discovers that Nick hasn’t told her the whole truth about the case, that he has a stake in it, Claire is left not knowing who to believe or if she can trust anyone. I loved flawed protagonists, and Claire is one of my favorite so far. The whole physician heal thyself thing and all. I also loved the St. Augustine setting, one of the most beautiful places in the country
