Throwback Thursday week 17: Therapy by Sebastian Fitzek

No witnesses.

Twelve-year-old Josy has an inexplicable illness. She vanishes without a trace from her doctor’s office during treatment. Four years later, Josy’s father, psychiatrist Viktor Larenz, has withdrawn himself to an isolated North Sea island in order to deal with the tragedy.

No body.

Then he’s paid a surprise visit by a beautiful stranger. Anna Glass is a novelist who suffers from an unusual form of schizophrenia: all the characters she creates for her books become real to her. In her last novel she has written about a young girl with an unknown illness who has disappeared without a trace.

Where is his daughter?

Can Anna’s delusions describe Josy’s last days? Reluctantly, Viktor agrees to take on her therapy in a final attempt to uncover the truth behind his daughter’s disappearance. But very soon these sessions take a dramatic turn as the past is dragged back into the light – with terrifying consequences.


While I was on holiday in Cyprus last year, I read Therapy by Sebastian Fitzek. It was easily one of my favourite books of 2014. It was such a gripping thriller that I read it all in one sitting which is rare for me because I can never usually get comfortable enough to sit for so long! Even my sister, who never usually finishes books, couldn’t put it down. I would definitely recommend it if you enjoy thriller/mystery books – you won’t be disappointed.
