A young prison psychiatrist must decide if Victor Janko, the notorious Baby Carriage Killer, should be eligible for parole after spending 15 years in solitary confinement. A suspenseful and compelling read. Film rights sold. Just when you think you know what's going on, the story shifts 180 degrees. Highly recommend.
This was a disjointed read for me. It was going along so well then the author just kinda finished it, WHAT? That's not what happenedrely. So I really enjoyed the characters up until it was just stupid.
Great book. I could feel the danger. Sick and twisted in parts. I was impressed how he had taken an old book and updated it to more current times. I had an empathy for the characters. I am looking to read some of his other works.
A suspense story told by the doctor while he solves the murder that the patient/convict was put in prison for.Great premise but not a great story.
Dangerous Behavior has a fun plot that keeps you guessing to the end. The main character has an interesting perspective and helps you become fully immersed in his world. His world of psychiatry and NY prisons was presented in an interesting way. For me, there was some annoying distractions, like the mc/author's seeming obsession with women's breasts which seemed to be the only part of the women that was interesting to the men, and that perspective got a bit tedious. It also seemed a bit sophomor [...]
MURDER MYSTERY - MAYBE "DANGEROUS BEHAVIOR" is a psychological mystery + the 1st book I've read by Walter Marks.

Didn't do it for me, I'm afraid. I've read a number of books about lunatics in psychiatric wards and prisons and the action's always fast-paced and vicious. This book ambles along at it's own little pace telling us about the doctor's migraines and his motel room and I kept thinking, "Get on with the story! Where's all the action?"I read 29% and I'm aware there are those who say you shouldn't review without reading the whole book, but how much of a bad steak do you need to eat before realising yo [...]
"every psychiatrist is a detective because every patient is a mystery." Dr. Rothberg was hired by the county corrections to work with inmates and determine whether or not they're eligible for parole. Victor Junko was one of them. Accused of brutally murdering a woman in her own apartment, in front of her toddler, and walking away only to be picked up by the police with the weapon in hand. Was he guilty or psychotic or both?~ as the protagonist was drawn in, so was I. The clever banter between ch [...]
I found this book highly entertaining and educational as well. It is set in a prison. A new shrink is going to save the criminally insane. He is given one prisoner to focus on. This criminal has committed a heinous crime but manifests as a gentle soul. The shrink explores his history. The book winds up with an unexpected end. Why educational? There are lots of medical terms and drugs mentioned in the book. Following them up on has enlightened me.
I thought the plot was an interesting one, but the main character was so far removed from how a real therapist would behave, it was just ludicrous. He talked about his client with the guy's girlfriend, and then nearly had sex with her! This story could have been good, but was so far from reality that it just lost its ability to captivate an intelligent reader. The turtle was the most believable part.
I wanted to like this book. However, I’m not sure what kind of prison this is. Correctional Officers aren’t armed. Prison psychiatrists don’t run around and solve mysteries and almost sleep with an inmate’s girlfriend. They don’t chase down who they think did it and try to get their DNA. Ugh.
Dangerous Behavior.The author plays with your emotions,strings you along and finally the unexpected ending leaves you begging for more! Guaranteed to help you run the gamut of emotions from fear,love,hope and despair.
Beautiful twist. Fast and complex. I loved it.
FairI didn't e joy this. I just didn't connect with any of the characters. Overall not a very interesting story.
It's a short and quick read that moves along at a good pace and kept me interested. There are two big twists in the story. The first is a little ridiculous and silly, the second is believable and makes sense. My only real problem with the book apart from the silly plot twist was the main character. I know he's not some seasoned veteran, but he seemed naive and unprofessional to me on more than one occasion. I think that if the main character had been a prison guard or something it could have bee [...]

Super quick read (it only took me about a day to read), but was a change of pace from normal psychological thrillers. The plot has several unpredictable twists that as a reader just when you think you know the truth behind the Baby Carriage Killer and murder, more comes to light. A compelling read from start to finish. Definitely recommend for those that like mysteries and psychological reads.
GOOD READA good psychological thriller he got me in the end totally did not expect it to end that way. Now I have to read more books by this author! Now I have to hit the search button and search by author for Walter Mars.My comparative literature proff Dr. Bjornson convinced me years ago as an undergraduate the wisdom of reading a body of the authors works!
Is he guilty, no he's notYou'll be asking yourself these questions over and over. Interesting subject, prisons and physiology. Well developed characters, even a ninja. Short, good book.
Although I didn't like the suddenness of the ending, Dangerous Behavior was mostly well-crafted mystery novel of moderate interest.
Intreging bookThis book kept me on my toes. Never saw the ending turn out the way it did, and those are the best books. Totally recommend this book.
4 starsWould have rated it 5 stars if it had an ending. Couldn't put it down but realized at the end that I didn't know much more than when I started.
For the most part the book was pretty interesting but I did not like the ending.
Very hard to put downEnjoyed the pace and plot but I was a little disappointed in the sudden stop. It was a very good read.
Pretty good! slow at times, but what book isn't.
