An Esteemed Psychiatrist and His Wife Set Out to Solve the Murders of Troubled Patients in ‘Fatal Betrayal’

News Image
This series is unique and it’s a rare example of a couple working together despite seemingly insurmountable odds to capture the killer before he or she can strike again.

Author Bruce Forester invites readers to embark on a quest to uncover a series of murder mysteries in the first book of his Mort and Millie series, “Fatal Betrayal” (published by AuthorHouse).

Dr. Mort Yvars is a New York-based psychiatrist who specializes in treating patients prone to violence. His co-therapist is his wife, Millie, and she divides her time between the practice and studying for the law boards. Together, Millie and Mort have eight patients in their therapy group.

The sudden and mysterious death of one of Dr. Yvars’ young male patients is rapidly followed by the equally baffling deaths of two other members of the group, one of whom happens to be a U.S. Senator, Judd Webster of Colorado. Each patient has his or her own motive that makes them a suspect. Without his courageous Millie by his side, Dr. Yvars, riddled with fear and anxiety, must go it alone at the top of a remote Colorado mountain in a spine-tingling finale.

“My education as a psychiatrist coupled with my studying about the law has allowed me to create, through my vivid imagination, complex medical and legal interwoven mysteries,” Forester writes. “This series is unique and it’s a rare example of a couple working together despite seemingly insurmountable odds to capture the killer before he or she can strike again.”
