In 2018, McTavish & Buret’s Arabesque introduced readers to the tragic events in the past life regression of Laura, whose lifelong struggle with her disability provides the backbone for The McTavish Regressions novels. Beasts is the second book in this series. With these books, Wallace & Vivi prove themselves to be one of the world’s most innovative duos, taking the reader to historical moments where victories and defeats set patterns for the future lives of their disturbed patients. They write equally vividly about their own past-life experiences. In doing so they have created a world in which readers will recognize themselves and have drawn a thrilling and nuanced portrait of how hypnotherapy meets criminology.
Who will they meet next? Who will they be next?
In Beasts, Laura meets another piece to her puzzle and continues to triumph her family saga and life in a wheelchair; McTavish & Buret meanwhile, have their own discoveries through their regressions, notably the potential for using regression therapy to treat recidivism in life’s most hardened criminals. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all the fragility of the human psyche: these are passions under which both doctors live out this phase in their stories, giving readers a poignant and universal look into healing and belonging.
