the book kept me going through fast paced twists and turns. I enjoyed more insight into the early Dr. Delaware and the twist at the end of the plot brought great closure to the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.
Former child psychologist now works with LA police as a consultant. This one involves a child missing from a cancer treatment ward. Like all Kellerman novels about Alex Delaware, this one is fast-paced with an intricate plot. A quick read.
