The therapist and prostitute have more in common than you think. Both charge by the hour for intimate services that most people find for free within a personal relationship, and both conceal their personal selves behind their professional personas and strict rules of engagement. Patrick Chime, is a disenchanted forty-something. A talented therapist but a terrible husband. When a gun-toting former client and social misfit, obsessed by the artist Degas, walks into his office, Patrick's own world starts to unravel as he's forced to tackle his own personal demons. The novel traces Patrick's private and personal life over the course of two months during which the unravelling of two powerful secrets cause his private life to implode and deep cracks to appear in his professional self. As the title suggests "Listening In" allows readers to eavesdrop behind the closed door of the therapy room, and hear rather more than they might expect.
