Here's what other reviewers said:

Blurb and book links below.
Fresh out of school, Dr. Crane takes on a new patient who both intrigues and unnerves him. Charming, manipulative, and amoral, Max has exactly the sort of mind Crane finds himself drawn to with fictional characters.
As Max weaves himself into Crane's life, Crane realizes that while fiction might be safe, Max certainly is not.
When the professional line between them thins, who gets to define where one man ends and the other begins?

Don't Go, Ramanya by Rush Leaming
The debut novel from Rush Leaming.
From Midwest Book Review, D. Donovan: "Don't Go, Ramanya is thriller reading at its best, cementing a turbulent political atmosphere with an overlay of diverse and realistic human concerns and endeavors that border on the extraordinary. Genre fans who seek atmosphere and description in their reads will find that Leaming doesn't sacrifice either psychological depth or evocative setting for the sake of fast-paced action, winding all into an emotionally and socially charged saga that's hard to put down."
From The BookLife Prize in Fiction: "Leaming's fast-paced novel hits many strong notes as it follows British priest Father Bob, American ex-pat Michael Shaw, and Burmese rebel Ramanya from Bangkok to the border to smuggle Ramanya back into the country. The sense of place created by the author is excellent throughout... "
Three men running from secrets and tragedies in their past. Four tense days in and around Bangkok. A taut literary thriller that you won't soon forget.
