It’s happened to all of us at one time: falling victim to someone who says the words we want to hear. It usually ends with a wounded heart or lost love. But in one woman’s case, it took a deadly turn.
Jennifer Miller, an Emmy-nominated TV writer, was a highly functioning member of the Hollywood scene who had everything going for her: great contacts, great work, and the promise of an even greater future. But what Jennifer did not have was a happy life, or even the ability to understand what happy meant. A single woman who did not know what it was like to have a love relationship, she was haunted by a deepening despair. She toyed with therapy, but Jennifer, the daughter of a shrink, was convinced that she was beyond help. Then she met Dr. David Cohen, and discovered something worse than depression.
Believing she had finally found someone to trust completely, Jennifer allowed herself to get sucked into Dr. Cohen’s world. What followed is a chilling tale of fraudulent therapy that is enthralling and horrifying from its skillful beginning to its shocking conclusion.
Jennifer Miller is a longtime television writer. She was nominated for an Emmy for Roseanne, for which she wrote under her pen name, Jennifer Heath. Miller is also a stand-up comedian, actress, and painter. The Day I Went Missing is her first published work. She lives in Southern California.
