The Captives

Choices. Debra Jo Immergut’s debut novel titled, The Captives, is set mostly in a prison, and presents a story from the perspective of two troubled protagonists who continue to make poor choices. Frank Lundquist is a psychologist who lost his private practice and now works in a prison. When his high school crush, inmate Miranda Greene, arrives in his office, Frank knows what professional behavior requires. Immergut informs readers of that in chapter headings and excerpts from professional rules. Frank makes other choices. In her own way, Miranda also makes sub-optimal choices. Both characters are captive and are looking for freedom from their circumstances. I’m a bit tired of spending time with disturbing characters, but this novel is well-written, and I was entertained.
