The #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman’s “psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix” (Los Angeles Times), and this intensely thrilling blend has never been so powerful as in the acclaimed author’s new novel of murder and madness among the beautiful dreamers, seductive predators, and doomed innocents adrift in the glare of Southern California’s eternal sunshine.

A series of horrifying events occur in quick succession in the same upscale Los Angeles neighborhood. A backyard renovation unearths an infant’s body, buried sixty years ago. And soon thereafter in a nearby park, another disturbingly bizarre discovery is made not far from the body of a young woman shot in the head. Helping LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis to link these eerie incidents is brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware; but even the good doctor’s vast experience with matters both clinical and criminal might not be enough to cut down to the bone of this chilling case—and draw out the disturbing truth.

Backtracking six decades into the past stirs up tales of a beautiful nurse with a mystery lover, a handsome, wealthy doctor who seems too good to be true, and a hospital with a notorious reputation—all of them long gone, along with any records of a newborn, and destined for anonymity. But the specter of fame rears its head when the case unexpectedly twists in the direction of the highest echelons of celebrity privilege. Entering this sheltered world, Alex imagines the macabre layer just below the surface—a decadent quagmire of unholy rituals and grisly sacrifice.

Before their work is done, Alex and Milo, must confront a fanatically deranged mind of such monstrous cunning that even the most depraved madman would shudder.

Listener Opinions

    " Not one of his best. Story has been done before by others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 2/7/2014

    " A solid entry in the Alex/Milo series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Marasca | 2/6/2014

    " Classic Kellerman: There's a murder or two with a psychological edge that need to be investigated by Milo & Alex. Throw in a bunch of suspects where you're positive you know who it is only to have a wrench thrown in at the end to reveal the real killer who is not the one Kellerman was leading to all along. Love the twists. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Em | 2/4/2014

    " This was definitely one his better books in the past couple of years and less predictable and graphic. The depth of his characters combined his grasp of what motivates them makes all of his books worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie Collins | 1/27/2014

    " It was okay. Not one of his best, but an easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Ertz | 1/17/2014

    " Not a bad outing for Alex and Milo. The series is getting a bit tired, but this has an interesting twist. Alex's relationship with Robin still goes no where. But the mystery is deep and it takes a long while to zero in on the bad guy. In fact, the book could have been longer if you wanted to make getting in a bit harder. Overall a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/16/2014

    " I think I'm getting tired of this series. For whatever reason, I'm finding the believability more ... unbelievable, I guess. So -- it's OK. I still like the series and I'm certainly not sorry I read it. But it's not one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/15/2014

    " A solid, typical, Alex Delaware story. Good, but not the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/12/2014

    " I liked this book until chapter 33 when it jumped tracks to a weird Brangelina thing. They forgot about the beginning of the book and put more importance in solving other murders, but to tie up loose ends, you get a bby announcement at the end--Big deal.......... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agatha | 12/22/2013

    " I have read all of Kellerman's Alex Delaware books about a child psychologist and his detective friend; this is a very good entry in the series, very easy to read with a story that moves quickly and assuredly "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 12/22/2013

    " I was really disappointed in this book. Kellerman is one of my most favorite authors and Alex Delaware one of my most favorite characters. I just never really got into the book, but did read it all! Either Jonathan or I were having a bad week!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bgrayyoung | 12/14/2013

    " A typical Alex Delaware tale. Interesting look at Hollywood's A-list! I wonder if the police really allow friends of detectives to be so involved in investigations and are really able to take obscure clues and find the truth. "

    " This book was just ok for me. This is the first book I've read by the author. It kept me interested but was expecting more. "
