Review by:
Laurie Jo Wright

In his new book, Psychotherapy: An Erotic Relationship, David Mann has written a real psychoanalytic cliff-hanger, creating a new context in which I found myself setting that crime-thriller question: Who-Dunnit? I think it is an obvious example of the tension that this topic is capable of generating by the very fact that I find myself wanting to use a joke as the opening of my review for this highly professional and well-researched book. What seems even more significant in the use of this joke is the parallel it draws between eroticization of the therapeutic relationship and the murderous and often sleazy content of crime writing literature as a whole.
