Good Shrink/Bad Shrink is a medical mystery/thriller that explores the dark but enthralling world of mind control and abusive psychiatric research. Psychiatric resident Eve Gilchrist encounters a puzzling patient whose flashbacks suggest that the life he thought he remembered was an artefact of brainwashing. Consultant Ben Jordan, experienced with both psychoanalysis and hypnosis, discovers that the man is still being trained and monitored by the Project, a shadowy group that applies officially-condemned mind control technologies for profit in the private sector. Project operatives, including some of Jordan's faculty colleagues, mobilize to reclaim their trainee, undermine Jordan's credibility, and neutralize both Jordan and Gilchrist to preserve the secrecy of their efforts. Jordan and Gilchrist - a quick learner - utilize clinical knowledge and research findings to escape efforts to torture and liquidate them, and to distinguish fact from fiction in their patient's accounts. The patient returns to his actual home in a fugue state. Jordan and his unlikely allies must battle the Project's operatives while Jordan risks his life to locate the patient and undo the Project's grip upon his mind.
