Who Found Out: Psychiatrist Susannah peeled away each layer of Viki's
tortured psyche until the cause of her dissociative identity disorder became
exposed – as a child, she had been sexually abused by her father!

of the night her father died. What was uncovered shook every bone in her body –
Tori, one of her multiple personalities, was responsible!

on a pedestal. Now, with one sudden swoop, he had been knocked down.
