Dr. Alex Delaware doesn’t see many private patients anymore, but the young woman called Lucy is an exception. So is her dream. Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex by Los Angeles police detective Milo Sturgis. A juror at the agonizing trial of a serial killer, Lucy survived the trauma only to be tormented by a recurring nightmare: a young child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act.

Now Lucy’s dream is starting to disrupt her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The power of the dream, its grip on Lucy’s emotions, suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It may be the repressed childhood memory of something very real. Something like murder.

    " Really slow going, but not as bad as the Kellerman I recall reading on a bus trip in Australia a couple of years ago. "

    " Kinda gripping, but like so many times before the ending was far from satisfying. "

    " While Alex and Robin are rebuilding their home, they're staying in a Malibu beach house. When a young woman juror reaches out to Milo after a traumatic court case that sees a serial killer placed on death row, Milo calls his best friend Alex to help her. The case brings out repressed memories from Lucy's childhood, and Alex's persistence in learning the truth, sets them on a dangerous path of betrayal and scandal. Another riviting read! "

    " I liked the beginning of this book. I was intrigued by the idea that the main character, Alex Delaware, was a clinical psychologist and a patient of his had just been on a jury that convicted a serial killer. Now she was having recurring dreams of seeing two men carrying a young woman into the forest. It had potential, but bogged down at one point and I think it would have been a better book if he had taken out about 100 pages. I did like it, but I only give it 3 stars. "
