Baker & Taylor
When his daughter disappears and a stalker patient emerges as the prime suspect, a troubled hospital psychiatrist contacts Espinosa for help, but as Espinosa learns more about the doctor's history he finds it difficult to discern the stalker from the stalked and reality from fantasy. 35,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
When his daughter disappears and a patient emerges as the prime suspect, a troubled psychiatrist comes to Espinosa for help, in the fifth novel in the beguiling Brazilian crime series

A hospital psychiatrist feels he's being stalked by a young patient. For as long as possible, he convinces himself that the young man is harmless, but when the doctor's daughter disappears and the patient goes missing, too, he calls on Espinosa for help. Soon after, the patient turns up dead.
With his death begins a chain of other deaths, each more mysterious than the one that preceded it, each seemingly linked to the doctor and his former patient. As Espinosa learns more about the doctor's history, it becomes harder to discern the stalker from the stalked, reality from fantasy, and the sane from the diabolical. In this installment of the "seductive, fascinating" (The New York Times Book Review) series, the sultry maze of Rio de Janeiro's streets conspires against Espinosa, confounding his judgment, stymieing his search, and, somewhere, concealing a murderer.

This is #5 in a series of books set in Rio de Janiero and that feature a Chief Inspector Espinosa; the story oddly seems to have been written in not the most understandable sequence and the resolution of the plot depends on the occurrence of a highly improbable murder and the occurrence of another unlikely event; and, as always in this series, there’s all that annoying and totally unnecessary clutter of Rio street names that often gets in the way of the story

Well plotted, plenty of twists and turns. A great read.
