Not my favorite Alex Delaware novel...I did not like the ending. It does keep your interest and has some twists and turns.

I absolutely love the Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis characters! This book does not disappoint as the psychologist/detective pair work on another creepy case.

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.

A psychological thriller with a good plot. Big book that's hard to put down until you finish. Love it!

Not the best in the series, but still a strong plot and well drawn characters.

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.
