This is one of Jonathan Kellerman's best of the Alex Delaware series. The author has put together an intriguing mix of child psychology, murder and suspense with this tale that twists and turns. Who is Sharon Ransom and why did she die? Or did she? This one will keep you turning the pages.
Another great Alex Delaware book! I didn't realize this was a series when I picked this up, and I was thrilled to realize that there are more out there. That said, I think this probably the best entre into Kellerman's novels. The story is dark and thrilling, and the writing is great -- the characters really leap off of the page. Love it!
An old friend with lots of psychological problems, shows back up in Alex's life long enough to stir up feelings before she then commits suicide. Alex then proceeds to follow a trail of information to unravel what really happened. Easy to read and you can read and follow the book without reading the other three Alex Delaware books.

This is my first J. Kellerman book, and WOW, this writer has me hooked already. The book has it all -- romance, rejection, confusion, a woman involved in pornography, there's blackmail, problems at the job level, issues with professional personalities in scholastic settings that are not so professional, and an interesting question -- which woman do you believe? And both women appear to share the same body.
This had me going from the first page to the last. Foreshadowing even kept you guessing -- you knew what was going to happen, or did you? Just when you thought, "I got it!" he added another twist to the plot. I was unprepared for the ending, as was the author's intention. I recently obtained another J. Kellerman book and am trying to hurry through my other stack of books so I can get to it! (Oh, I might just have to sneak it in there sooner....)
The characterization -- awesome. You feel like Alex is your best friend, or maybe even YOU, in another life. The descriptions make the reader feel THAT close to Alex. Excitement in this book never ends. I was annoyed when it ended because I wanted more, more, more! You must read this book and have the ride of your life, or at least your book-reading life. I have students who think reading is boring. Clearly, they've never read Jonathan Kellerman!
