One of the infant twin daughters of billionaire Darwin Bishop has been murdered in her crib at the family's estate. The suspected killer is her adopted brother, Billy.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ella | 2/14/2014

    " Clevenger is beyond flaw. He's outright unfit and unethical to be a forensic psychiatrist. Sleeping with suspects, not reporting a crime, drug use and abuse are only some of his issues. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrissy Owens | 2/12/2014

    " Although it was a bad idea to read this the week after my daughter's birth, I couldn't put it down and finished it in one sitting. It's difficult to read objectively as a parent. I owned this book before I was a mother and wish I had read it then. Very sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teeni | 1/31/2014

    " A good fiction read. Interested in trying some of his others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/24/2014

    " Dr. Frank Clevenger takes on another forensics case against his better judgement. A friend asks him to do him this one favor, and he reluctantly agrees. Frank is still battling his own demons with alchohol and sex that had hold of him in his last story (Denial), and he falls off the wagon for a brief moment. As he searches for a baby killer, he falls in love with the baby's mother, tries to help her older son with anger, and receives threats from the baby's father. Love the twists in this story. "

    " Wow - don't remember reading this book years after I did read it. Hmmm! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Yelverton | 1/19/2014

    " A dark and twisted novel that is sadly quite impossible to understand unless you read the previous novel in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/19/2014

    " Another great story, and what a twist! I was starting to suspect but not till the last 3 chapters. Maybe I'm just slow, lol. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 12/23/2013

    " I liked this book well enough to read two others of his. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/19/2013

    " Good; Continuing character: Dr. Frank Clevenger; psychiatrist helps in case of murdered infant, where suspects range from older brother, to abusive father, to the mother - who the doctor has fallen for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 lunaticprophet | 5/1/2013

    " ***+ Another well written work. I realized that these books are part of a series with this one coming before Psychopath. I enjoyed it even though I'd had a good idea of who the killer was well before the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma Brown | 9/29/2012

    " Enjoyed this book. Did not guess who killer was so a good satisfying ending "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 8/18/2012

    " This book was awesome. Great psychological suspence mixed with a little bit of romance. Keith Ablow knows how to capture your attention and mind and keep it until the very end. I can't wait to read his other books. Very good book and author! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deanna | 8/16/2012

    " Not one of the best books I've read, but still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sierra crosby | 6/14/2012

    " A frank Clevenger book. Good book. it was a good book, and I enjoyed it. I like the frank character as well as how Keith Ablow actually is a psychologist, so knows what he is talking about. Like with the Linda fairstein books, that knowledge comes through and makes a totally believeable book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 3/17/2012

    " Actually really liked the main character ... Frank Clevenger ... believably realistic. Will definitely read another. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/10/2012

    " Thought this book was pretty predictable and I had guessed the ending by the 4th chapter, and as a psychiatrist, I thought Frank was a mess, and not in a fun or charming way..but not the worse book ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KatMcD | 2/9/2012

    " Book Club pick. Very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack Barraclough | 11/7/2011

    " I took a tip from my wife and picked up the first book in the crime section. I really enjoyed the story, with plenty of twists and turns. I will definitely go back and read his earlier books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/11/2011

    " The best of the series so far. The author has the ability to see evil, and also to see the cause of evil, not just in murder, but in families and personal tragedies. Great storytelling, very complex characters and a flawed hero. You never know who you can trust, except the good doctor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danette | 9/4/2011

    " Fairly typical Ablow. But this one kept me guessing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 6/1/2011

    " Third in the Frank Cleavenger series, I found this really enjoyable & better than book 2 in the series, clever story with psychological suspence & good character of the lead character. Well recommended. "

    " Hadn't realised this was a series and started reading. Still enjoyed it very much and will be looking out for the rest of the series. "
