Overview
A troubled psychiatrist turns investigator when a young patient confesses to murder.
Psychiatrist Mark Angelotti knows that genes don't lie. Or do they?
Back at work after a devastating illness, Mark believes he has put his past behind him when he is asked to examine Charlie Dickerson, a mentally handicapped teenager whose wealthy mother insists he is a victim of sexual abuse. Mark diagnoses a different reason for Charlie's ills, but his prescription turns deadly when a teacher is murdered and Charlie confesses to the police.
Volunteering to testify on Charlie's behalf, Mark's worst fears are realized when paternity tests show the victim was pregnant with Charlie's child. Now it's up to Mark to prove Charlie's innocence in a case where nothing is as first meets the eye.
Not even genes--Mark's or Charlie's--can be trusted to shine a light on the truth.

Near the start of Raimondo's engaging debut, Chicago psychiatrist Mark Angelotti receives a visit from the parents of 18-year-old Charlie Dickerson, who has the mental age of a grade schooler and has been crying in the middle of the night at his care facility, the New Horizons Center. Charlie's well-heeled parents fear that Charlie has been abused at New Horizons. The psychiatrist, who's still reeling from a diagnosis of a degenerative eye disease, doubts abuse, but he soon faces a bigger problem after Charlie confesses to the murder of the center's art teacher, Shannon Sparrow. Accused of malpractice and fearing the effect of imprisonment on Charlie, Angelotti begins to look into the backgrounds of Shannon and her co-workers. Angelotti's smart-aleck tendencies and unswerving dedication to his vulnerable client—as well as an exciting climax—keep the reader turning the pages. Agent, Kate Folkers, Martin Literary Management. (Jan.)
