The voice belongs to a woman, but Dr. Alex Delaware remembers a little girl. It is eleven years since seven-years-old Melissa Dickinson dialed a hospital help line for comfort--and found it in therapy with Alex Delaware. Now the lovely young heiress is desperately calling for psychologist's help once more. Only this time it looks like Melissa's deepest childhood nightmare is really coming true ... Twenty years ago, Gina Dickinson, Melissa's mother, suffered a grisly assault that left the budding actress irreparably scarred and emotionally crippled. Now her acid-wielding assailant is out of prison and back in L.A.--and Melissa is terrified that the monster has returned to hurt Gina again. But before Alex Delaware can even begin to soothe his former patient's fears, Gina, a recluse for twenty, disappears. And now, unless Delaware turns crack detective to uncover the truth, Gina Dickinson will be just one more victim of a cold fury that has already spawned madness--and murder.

    " Not sure I like how this one ended esp after 500 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey Benage | 2/5/2014

    " A not great but good mystery book. Kept my attention and kept me turning the pages. Would read another Jonathan Kellerman book again if in the mood for a mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melony | 2/4/2014

    " It had many twists and turns. Took you to the very end before the mystery was solved. I thought it I had solved it several times, but in the end I did not. Like I said twists and turns. "

    " It's the day after I finished the book and I'm having a hard time remembering it. What does that say? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ette | 1/25/2014

    " This is the first Kellerman I've read. It's a really good book--well written, and the psychotherapy parts are actually accurate, which is what you'll get reading a book by a psychologist, I guess. But it's still refreshing to read accurate psychotherapy in a novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachelle | 1/25/2014

    " My first and last Kellerman book. It started out very interesting and kept me reading, but I found the ending to be quite sickening and not at all something that made me want to read any other work by the author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiona (Titch) Hunt | 1/23/2014

    " Another great thriller from Mr Kellerman. All the twists and turns I would expect with his books. "

    " Blah, blah, blah, murder, blah, blah, blah, scared child, blah, blah, blah, madness.Might as well have read a stack of People magazines for all the lasting effect. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danya | 1/2/2014

    " An OK read. I need to go back to the start and read these over. Even though they are stand alone, there's a lot of unexplained baggage. "

    " A great book if you're into child psychology. "

    " this book was okay..it was one of his earlier novel within the series. i think his newer ones are MUCH better. regardless, still a good read. "

    " I just loved how Melissa got over her fears, but I can't believe her mother disappears and everybody thought she was dead! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mick | 12/8/2013

    " Private Eyes is another good Milo/Delaware mystery. The characters have believable relationships and the writing is first rate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mkingsford | 10/25/2013

    " This was my first read of a Jonathan Kellerman novel. This is about a young girl who goes to visit a psychatrist. It was good, kept me entertained, couldn't figure out "who dun it". Parts were a bit much for me, but overall it was fun to read. I would try another of hit books. "

    " Could have sworn I had already read this one when I started it but turned out, I hadn't, or if I did, I didn't remember it. Was a decent story but seemed to drag quite a bit for a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Peterson | 3/20/2013

    " I did not enjoy this book as much of some of the Alex Delaware books. There is not too much action and Alex kinda guesses his way into solving this crime. Interesting twists and turns. Still a fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 2/23/2013

    " Oh, ugh. I still like Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis as characters. But, yuck, what a wrap up to what promised to be a good story line. Oh, puhleaze.... "
