NINE NORTH, by Art Smukler, MD, author & psychiatrist

Jake Bennett throws away his Ivy League education and the love of his life to be a writer. Three failed novels later, a crappy apartment, a battered car, and waiting tables to survive, he sees his dead brother on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California. Hours later, he’s attacked by members of 14K, a brutal Hong-Kong-based Triad, and almost killed. To hide from his attackers, he gets himself admitted to Nine North, the psychiatric unit at New County Hospital. 

Like cozy mysteries? 

Two lovers you’ll never forget? 

A brilliant writer hiding out on a psychiatric unit in Los Angeles?

A Hong Kong Triad trying to kill him?

A psychiatrist who actually tries to figure out why his patients do what they do?

How the unconscious mind rules our behavior? 

High finance? 


You’ve got to read NINE NORTH, a mystery. It’ll blow you away.
