I loved the book, but it read a little slow through at least halfway through the book. Interesting but slow. But after the halfway mark it really picks up the pace and has that edge of the seat excitement I got from the other Alex Delaware novels I've read.
Really intriguing book with the main character of Alex Delaware the child psychologist working with gifted or very gifted children and the problems of one years later. Brings in lots of family problems in rich family with gifted nephew and what family history and business has to do with him. Alex's police detective friend Milo Sturgis is very helpful to solving the case after young gifted boy is charged with murder and psychotic problems. Good read and very interesting. One of Jonathan Kellerman's first three books.
I think this was the first Alex Delaware novel of Jonathan Kellerman's that I read, and it kept me reading. A call from a former patient, a young man, to child psychologist Alex Delaware begins a middle-of-the-night drive into madness and murder and secrets...three things that make this a suspenseful and memorable book.
