I always like anything that Kellerman writes and this was no exception. When the murderers of a little two year old girl were caught, tried and convicted in the beginning of the book, I wondered where the plot could possibly go. Well, I found out, with all of the twists and turns, the mastermind was finally revealed.

This was an excellent book. One of his best, alex delaware novel. It's about a murder case of a young girl commited by two teenagers. One who is a minature serial killer in the making and the other a little slow. Alex Delware and his friend Milo dig deeper and uncover a series of coverups and other murders. I would recommend this to anyone that likes these types of novels.

I am a big fan of Kellerman (all of them) Because our main character. Alex Delaware, is a pychologist he can go in a lot of different directions with people and their problems. To say you enjoy an Alex Delaware book is difficult because the people he helps find and the crimes he help solve are often pretty sick, gory, and/or repulsive. His books read very much like true crime (except they are written much better) and contain many nuances and details of his characters pychology makeup. So dispite everything I am a avid reader of his books and this one doesnt disappoint.

If you are a fan of Kellerman's Delaware stories, you will like this one. A little different than some of his works, this one centers on the murder of a 2-year old and the two teenage boys that were convicted of it. When one of the boys is found dead years later, with Delaware's number on him, trusty detective Milo Sturgis teams up with Delaware to piece together the crime. Lots more talk and theory than action, which was a good thing this time around. The usual twists and turns with some more development than usual makes for a good, solid read.

I've been a fan of the Alex Delaware novel almost from the beginning, though the latest few have been piling up on my TBR stack because of lack of time. This one, while a pleasant return to well-loved characters, doesn't offer much in the way that's new or refreshing for either Milo or Alex, except to remind the reader that they've been doing this a long time and are feeling the strain. There are plenty of signs that both men are in desperate need of a change. Even Alex - who has never, ever been long commitment guy - agrees to help some of the victims in this with long-term therapy.

The mystery itself is light on suspense, heavy on characterization. While some readers seem to have had difficulty keeping them all straight, I didn't. The supporting cast in this is as vivid as any Kellerman has created. Yes, there are a lot of them, but each is unique and memorable. Where the mystery fumbles is in the truncated resolution. There are a plethora of questions left unanswered, and while I recognize the author probably meant it as an intentional parallel to what is going on with Alex, it's not very effective in terms of storytelling. Still, I whipped through this, just as I do with all the Delaware books, and don't regret the read in the slightest.
