In Frank Turner Hollon’s Blood and Circumstance, a psychologist delves into the head of Joel Stabler, a man charged with his brother’s murder. Joel obliges with tales of gothic family dysfunction — his brother and father were both apparently insane — and blowsy philosophizing.

Deep Thought ”The realistic man, who grasps and holds the idea that nothing matters…creates his own reality.”

Lowdown Joel’s mind is more tiresome than enigmatic; a final twist leaves readers feeling swindled.
