Summary (From the publisher):

At the Butterfield Institute Dr. Morgan Snow, one of New York's top sex therapists, sees everything from the abused to the depraved, from couples grappling with sexual boredom to twisted sociopaths with dark, erotic fetishes.

Cleo Thane is one of those special patients Morgan connects with immediately. A high-priced prostitute, Cleo is desperate to reconcile her successful professional life with her neglected personal one. When she asks Morgan to read her unpublished tell-all book about her exclusive clientele, Morgan realizes that what she has in her hands could be explosive.

Then Cleo Disappears

Detective Noah Jordan is trying to stay one step ahead of a serial killer who has been targeting prostitutes, killing them with ritualistic precision. When a missing person's report is filed on Cleo Thane, Noah wonders if she, too, has fallen prey to the psycho's wrath. He approaches Dr. Morgan Snow for insight, but Morgan refuses to breach patient confidentiality. Instead, she begins her own investigation into Cleo's disappearance and is shocked by how much the intimate sexual details of another woman's life affect her own. Too late she realizes she's ventured into dangerous -- even deadly -- territory.

  • "M.J. Rose is great." Janet Evanovich
  • "Potentially explosive...Rose's latest is not for the squeamish...Dr. Morgan Snow is an engaging guide to the world of dysfunction that Rose painstakingly constructs." Publishers Weekly
  • "Dr. Morgan Snow is a refreshingly vulnerable character whose spunky decision to go undercover in the demimonde is both believable and hair-raising. The Halo Effect will have you on the edge of your seat from page one." Katherine Neville
  • "I dare you to read the first five pages of The Halo Effect and not be in its thrall: this is a compulsive, artful page-turner of a novel. Suspenseful, sleek and sexy, this is M.J. Rose at her best." Douglas Clegg
  • "Rose writes fearlessly about sex. This is a true erotic thriller. The end will take your breath away." Lisa Tucker
  • "Rose has written a steamy and sexy novel that keeps the adrenaline running until the very end. Sex, romance, and murder are artfully combined to produce a page-turning novel that shouldn't be missed." New Mystery Reader
  • " a femme...Jonathan Kellerman." Kirkus Reviews
  • "Elegant, arresting and so suspenseful I was gripping the pages. Rose's alchemy is to take the psychological mystery and spin it into something literate and new, giving us complex, beautifully complicated characters which are so real we hear them breathing in our ear, prose that's both subtle and moving, and a plot that can only be described as a knockout." Caroline Leavitt
