Jonathan Kellerman introduces Dr. Alex Delaware, child phycologist, in this first of many novels with Delaware as the main character.
Alex has been asked to step into a police investigation as a consultant when a 6-year-old girl seems to be the only witness to a gruesome double homicide. His probing unveils a sinister group that not only exploits children but has committed more murders.
Kellerman is a master storyteller. His plots are rich and well grounded, the characters believable and the endings never fail to surprise you. As with all his books, this is a definite page-turner that will keep you reading until late into the night.

Typical mystery thriller-I call these time fillers. This book is also trying to set up a new series of books starring a \'new\' character.

First in the Alex Delaware ("retired" [at age 32] child psychologist, now assists the LA police in solving crimes) series, this one sets the pace for all those that follow. It's full of twists and turns, right up to the last twist that precedes the end of the book by only two sentences! A nice change of pace from the cop/lawyer/private investigator crime drama/thriller.

First time I read this author. I'll read him again. Good characters with a little humor to them. The plot was interesting, but a little bit convoluted. This is the first book in the Alex Delaware series.

For an older dated book, it turned out to be a great thriller.
