A new book by John Bradford Branney is “Clock Strikes Three.” Joey Galler grew up fatherless, and his mother was both a drug addict and a prostitute. He was good at only one thing – being a magnet for trouble. After the police arrest Joey and charge him, a sympathetic judge sentences him to probation and psychiatric counseling. Dr. Holbrook Devon, Joey’s court appointed psychiatrist, believes he is above the law and tries to manipulate his patients to carry out a twisted form of vigilante justice. Can Joey escape where others have failed?
