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.

The third novel to feature child psychologist Alex Delaware begins with a desperate, garbled phone call from former patient Jamey Cadmus, genius of record and heir to a construction fortune. The next day, Jamey is accused of the Lavender Slashings, a series of grisly homosexual murders that have rocked Los Angeles. The teenager's lawyer asks Alex to examine Jamey's recent history with the hope that a plea of diminished capacity will protect Jamey from a prison sentence. Though soon fired, Alex continues his investigation, motivated by the compassion and intelligence previously demonstrated in When the Bough Breaks and Blood Test. Tracing the rocky road of Jamey's emotional development, Alex crisscrosses L.A., moving from Beverly Hills mansions to biker cabins, from the old Haight district to mountain canyons, with stops at the U.C.L.A. medical library, the high-security section of the L.A.P.D. jail and some exquisitely appointed legal offices. Aided by his friend, homicide detective Milo Sturgis, Alex ignores warnings to stay away from the case and begins to discern an ominous pattern in Jamey's family history, connecting esoteric South American hallucinogens, a massively irresponsible real-estate scam and the ageless human motivations of revenge and greed.

This is the 3rd book in the Alex Delaware series. Kellerman mixes complex psychology in with detective fiction to make it a thinking person's thriller. I always enjoy his books.

An Alex Delaware novel - a former patient calls him in the middle of the night and is then arrested at the scene of mutilation murder of his mentor and lover. Good complex plot.

Intricately plotted thriller with child psychologist Alex Delaware attempting to prove that a former patient is not the psycopathic slayer of several young men. Flawed somewhat by a climatic scene which includes an unlikely happenstance with one of the suspects combined with an unbelievable non-response by police interrogators.

An enjoyable read. Not necessarily the greatest mystery ever, but Kellerman's ability to bring pyschological theory to the lay level is impressive.

The first Kellerman book I read. A 1987 and the third of many Alex Delaware mysteries by Kellerman. I read this book a couple years ago, during my Jonathan Kellerman phase, I forgot most of it.

I enjoyed this book as well. The only way that I can some up this book is the same way Stephen King has sommed it up on the cover of the book. That states:

"Charged with suspense. This one is simply too good to miss." - Stephen King.
