Well I have to say I agree with everyone else. This book was so so and not anywhere near as exciting as most of Kellermans earlier work. As always Milo and Alex make a great team but there didn't see to be any suspense in this novel at all. It was too easy to figure out and personally I had NO sympathy for the girl they were trying to help. She just came across as annoying for me. It was an interesting enough read but definately something I could easily put down. I hope Kellermans next novel will be better.
Sorry to say, I didn't enjoy this book as much as a lot of his others. About halfway thru the book I wanted to put it down and start something else but I ended up finishing it anyway. I wish some of these authors would stop trying to push books out so quickly and put a bit more thought into them. I'm not giving up on Kellerman yet tho since I like Alex and Milo as a team.
I agree, this was only so-so; the title was the most exciting thing about the book, ha. The fans of Kellerman will probably tolerate this book, but it's really no big deal if you skip this particular book.
That's it- I give up. This book is so boring and slow-moving that I put it down after page 100 and have given up. Dr. Alex Delaware is trying to solve a mystery that may have occurred, or may not have. Patty Bigelow's dying death-bed confession to her daughter Tanya leads Tanya back to Dr. D., who had treated her childhood OCD. However, the confession was vague, and no one knows if a crime was actually committed. Booooooring. Dr. D. and detective Milo Sturgis try to delve into the past, but at page 100, nothing had been figured out. So, it's back on the bookshelf for other Kellerman fans to enjoy. Judging by the excellent reviews this book has on Amazon, I was certainly disappointed.
The usual ingenious complex plot. Characters well drawn, but almost too many of them to keep track of unless the book is read in only a few sessions. Need to focus to follow the plot.
