Jane Eltonabout this book: Dr. Judson Scott arrived at his elaborate estate in Connecticut just minutes before anticipated dinner guests.
"What's this," his wife Jennifer asked as she opened his briefcase as he rushed past her to take a shower.
"Huh?" A quick glance. "It's the diary of the patient's mother. From what I understand, after she died the girl collapsed and now exhibits paranoia."
"Are you taking the case?"
"No. The doctor at Langley Porter indicates they plan to use shock treatment."
"Is this the little white girl that the black lady asked you to see?"
Judson grimaced and shoved the shower curtain open. "She didn't ask, she demanded," he reminded her.
Hours later after their dinner guests had gone, they embraced and satiated themselves. He fell sleep, she didn't. She never betrayed his trust, or pried through his papers. A quick peek? The woman was dead. He said he wasn't going to treat the girl. Did the woman write the diary with the knowledge she was dying? How did she die? How old was she?
He sleepily reached out and hugged her to him.
"Wake up, darling."
He sat up. "Are you crying, Jen? Honey, what's the matter?"
Her face was wet. "I read her dairy."
"Lena Marshall. The lady who died. Get up darling. You've got to help that girl."
