Once again, the depths of the criminal mind and the darkest side of a glittering city fuel #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman’s brilliant storytelling. And no one conducts a more harrowing and suspenseful manhunt than the modern Sherlock Holmes of the psyche, Dr. Alex Delaware.

A tipsy young woman seeking aid on a desolate highway disappears into the inky black night. A retired schoolteacher is stabbed to death in broad daylight. Two women are butchered after closing time in a small-town beauty parlor. These and other bizarre acts of cruelty and psychopathology are linked only by the killer’s use of luxury vehicles and a baffling lack of motive. The ultimate whodunits, these crimes demand the attention of LAPD detective Milo Sturgis and his collaborator on the crime beat, psychologist Alex Delaware.

What begins with a solitary bloodstain in a stolen sedan quickly spirals outward in odd and unexpected directions, leading Delaware and Sturgis from the well-heeled center of LA society to its desperate edges; across the paths of commodities brokers and transvestite hookers; and as far away as New York City, where the search thaws out a long-cold case and exposes a grotesque homicidal crusade. The killer proves to be a fleeting shape-shifter, defying identification, leaving behind dazed witnesses and death—and compelling Alex and Milo to confront the true face of murderous madness.

    " I really enjoyed this book. It reinforced how much I love Jonathan Kellerman's writing style and story lines. Can't wait to read the next few books in the series. "

    " Another serial killer mystery by Kellerman. I love the pair of Alex Delaware (psychologist free lancing at NYPD) and Detective Milo Sturgis (very unconventional, rough spoken, but good at heart) and like reading the book even though the stories are oft - repeated serial killer ones. There is something new in every book. This book dealt with disappearance and death of a few females of varying ages and circumstances, all linked by a black car. Only Alex Delaware could untangle the illogical logic behind the murders. "

    " Typical Kellerman novel, but lacking the emotional depth of some of the others like "Billy Straight." This one had an interesting ending and an odd villain, but not my favorite of his Alex Delaware novels. "

    " The CD version of this Alex Delaware mystery was well acted so now I have several good voices in my head for Milo and Alex. The violence was harder to listen to than read. "
