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 like Jonathan Kellerman's books. Easy to read, mindless, and not too scary or gory... "

    " I'm usually a big fan of Jonathan Kellerman, so I'm glad Compulsion wasn't my first exposure to his work. Although enjoyable, this book was not up to Kellerman's standards. The characters weren't too compelling, and the three story lines going at once proved to be a distraction rather than excitement. I especially hated how the two minor stories were wrapped up at the end, as if an editor came along afterward and noticed those loose ends weren't dealt with previously. "
