Tanya Bigelow was a solemn little girl when Dr. Alex Delaware successfully treated her obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Now, at nineteen, she still seems older than her years–but her problems go beyond hyper-maturity. Patty Bigelow, Tanya’s aunt and adoptive mother, has made a deathbed confession of murder and urged the young woman to seek Delaware’s help. The doctor recalls Patty as a selfless E.R. nurse struggling to raise a child on her own–a woman seemingly incapable of the “terrible thing” she has admitted. But for Tanya’s peace of mind, Delaware agrees to investigate, and he enlists LAPD detective Milo Sturgis in the search for the phantom victim of a crime that may never have occurred.

Armed with only the vaguest details, psychologist and cop follow a trail twisting from L.A.’s sleaziest low-rent districts to its overblown mansions, retracing Patty and Tanya’s nomadic and increasingly puzzling life to the doorsteps of a sullen heroin addict; a randy real-estate broker; and a brilliant, enigmatic physics student. Suddenly a very real murder tears open a terrifying tunnel into the past, where secrets–and bodies–are buried. As the tension mounts, Delaware and Sturgis uncover a tangled history of desperation, vengeance, and death–a legacy of evil that refuses to die.

    " Nineteen-year-old girl with OCD hears an ambiguous confession from her dying mother. The resulting investigation turns up a suspect with his own obsessions (didn't appreciate the details of that). Very good audible narrator, interesting plot, didn't care for the graphics of a few characters. "

    " Each night, as I picked this book up to read, (And put it back down. Must do this exactly nine times.) as I turned each page, (Can't stop on an even numbered page. Have to keep going until the last numer is three.) as I read each chapter, (Have to stop on a word that has a numer of letters divisible by six.) I realized that the concept of "obsessive compulsive" character is bit far-fetched...But I liked the L.A setting. "

    " The story line was as good as other Alex Delaware novels, but advancing it though too much dialogue dragged it down a bit. I found myself skipping over long passages, something I almost never do! "

    " Good book. I really like the alex Delaware Series, Especially Milo. I like that it is about them trying to find if there was a crime. That was different. "
