Interesting storyline and plenty of plot twists and turns. This was my first Kellerman novel of the Alex Delaware series. It's fine to read out of order and has led me to wanting to read more of his novels.

One of Kellerman's early Alex Delaware book. As usual, he manages to weave together an incredible mystery. The solution is not until the final page. He is very clever on his development of characters. As usual, a good read.

The first half of this book was extremely slow for me. It was filled with a hand full of suspects and a lot of dead ends which I'm sure in reality, for a detective, working a cold case actually happens but for a reader it makes for some slow reading. Almost gave up on it a few times because it was moving at such a slow pace for me but I kept after it. I'm glad I did because it turned into quite a different story than I was expecting. This was my first time reading anything by Jonathan Kellerman and I don't think it'll be the last.

Not a psychological thriller in my opinion. Too many people introduced before any action commenced. Also way to discriptive. One of the most boring books I have read.

starts out boring and stays boring, not a good beginning to keep your attention for very long. this character doesn't 'grow' and all the clinician talk is very hard to follow and makes it uninteresting

From Publishers Weekly
Kellerman is at his page-turning best in his latest Alex Delaware adventure (after The Web), an investigation into the savage stabbing murder of Hope Devane, a psychology professor and celebrity author. The LAPD, unable to solve the case after three months, reassigns it to Lieutenant Milo Sturgis. Milo calls on his friend Alex, a compassionate, astute psychologist, for insight into the victim, who had a seemingly routine academic career and marriage until writing a pop-psych relationship book. Delving beneath the veneer of Hope's life, Alex uncovers possible enemies: a man with whom she clashed on a TV talk show; students brought before her committee on sexual harassment; patients at a beleaguered women's health clinic where she volunteered. Further questions are raised about the victim's relationships with her doctoral supervisee Casey Locking; about the fertility specialist, from whom she received hefty consultation fees; about her sex life; about a shadowy link to an organized crime figure and the murder of a Las Vegas call girl. Each new avenue of investigation leads Alex and Milo to a dead end until they reach back into Hope Devane's childhood, which reveals links to the present that provide the shocking answer to the puzzle. Kellerman may not be a great stylist, but his serpentine plot and cast of mysterious characters grip the reader to the final page. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

To both men, the cold stalking of Hope suggests calculation fueled by hate--an execution. They discover why as they unlock, one by one, the very private compartments of her life: her marriage, her shadowy work for a Beverly Hills clinic, the Conduct Committee she ran with an iron hand at the University and her baffling like to another murder victim. But it is when Alex delves into her childhood that he begins to understand the formidable woman she was--and that ties that entangled her life until the horrifying act of betrayal that ended it.
