About the Author
A licensed psychiatric and medical social worker, Scott L. Miller earned his Master's in Social Work at St. Louis University in 1979 and has worked with adults, children and the elderly in state and private hospitals in St. Louis city and county ever since. Working at the old Malcolm Bliss and St. Louis State Hospitals provided Steve L. Miller with his first taste of the street life partially captured in his current novel. Long fascinated by the wonders of the human brain and an avid reader of psychological suspense novels, he quit writing exceptionally bad poetry, studied fiction writing under the late John Gardner and more recently at Washington University, and began writing twenty-odd versions of the first novel in his series, The Interrogation Chair, in lieu of sleeping at night. He currently is working on his third Mitchell Adams novel from his home in Chesterfield where he lives with his wife Beta and their barn of beagles and cats. He finds time for sleep now, unless the animals hog the bed. scottlmiller.com

It’s a good life, until Kris is murdered, and murdered brutally, the day after she breaks up with Mitch. And Mitch is in the frame for her murder, as far as the police are concerned. And Mitch is determined to find out what happened, and why, even if it means not cooperating with the police.
That, in a nutshell, is the heart of Scott Miller’s “Interrogation.”
It’s always disconcerting to read a novel, in the case a mystery/suspense novel, set in one’s own town. You’re always looking to make sure all the geographic details are correct, and whether the story has the “feel” of the place you’re so familiar with. And part of the story is set about five minutes from my house, and the suburb of St. Louis where the main character works is Clayton, the country seat of St. Louis County and likely the most familiar part of St. Louis County for those of us who live there (the courts, the jail, the country government, untold numbers of good restaurants, and lots of lawyers and accountants).
Miller gets both the geography and the “feel” of St. Louis right.
“Interrogation” is a wild ride of a story, moving as fast as Adams often drives his car. It is full of unexpected twists and turns, as our intrepid social worker delves into his girlfriend’s death, and slowly begins to realize that she’s most likely been killed by one of his own patients.
Author Miller is himself a Ph.D. social worker, a cofounder of the Center for Clinical Excellence, a “consortium of clinicians, researchers, and educators dedicated to promoting excellence in behavior health.” He’s also written numerous articles and co-authored several books on human behavior.
That professional background serves Miller well in “Interrogation,” as Mitch Adams has to determine who’s killed his girlfriend and the motivation behind. The novel is a “psychological” thriller of the best kind.
