When the phone rings in the middle of the night, child psychologist Alex Delaware does not hesitate. Driving through the dream-lit San Fernando Valley, Alex rushes to Jamey Cadmus, the patient he had failed five years before—and who now calls with a bizarre cry for help. But by the time Alex reaches Canyon Oaks Psychiatric Hospital, Jamey is gone, surfacing a day later in the hands of the police, who believe Jamey is the infamous Lavender Slasher, a psychotic serial killer.

Wooed by a high-powered attorney to build a defense, Alex will get a chance to do what he couldn’t five years ago. And when he peers into a family’s troubled history and Jamey’s brilliant, tormented mind, the psychologist puts himself at the heart of a high-profile case. Because Alex knows that in a realm of money, loss, and madness, something terrible pushed Jamie over the edge—or else someone is getting away with murder.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 2/16/2014

    " a bit long in the end, but a typical Kellerman novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Archie | 2/15/2014

    " I am really starting to like these series. However, this book is a good reminder on why I only take drugs if I really, really, really need them... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 2/12/2014

    " His books just keep getting better and better. This one was a longer one and at first seemed a little daunting but as soon as I started it I couldn't put it down and just raced through it. Each of Kellerman's books get more interesting, more twisted, and yet hold together and don't seem over the top or at any time unbelievable. Can't wait to start the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jojo | 2/1/2014

    " Thoroughly enjoyable, even though it took longer than normal for me to read due to my having a cold and aggravatingly having to put the book down to blow my nose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Blankenship | 1/31/2014

    " This one had a really unique twist about framing someone by creating mental illness in them by using odd psychotropics and herbs! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 8/24/2013

    " Alex Delaware #3....this one kept me reading until the wee hours of the morning! Psychology has always intrigued me, so combining it with my favorite book genre makes it irresistible! This one is a roller-coaster ride through mental illness, psychosis, paranoia and evil. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Varner | 7/30/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaime | 7/24/2013

    " This book was given to me, and I found it kind of slow. It's a mystery, lots of medical terminology and names. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenifer | 6/20/2013

    " I've enjoyed several other Alex Delaware books, but this one was just way, way, way too long. The story could have been told much more enjoyably in half the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robby | 6/17/2013

    " A good read.Takes a while to get going (about 2/3 in). Needless to say, a lot of descriptive paragraphs. But,Kellerman fans know this as they also know he is an excellent author. This one was just a little slow at getting to the points within; for me. Still a good read. On to the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue z | 5/13/2013

    " This is one of his earlier novels and I liked the story line but he was very descriptive , my mind would start to wander and I started skipping over whole paragraphs. And he was also far more technical than in the newer novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trent Taylor | 4/30/2013

    " A fun read. Pay close attention and this one might actually be solvable. "
