The bestselling author of When The  Bough Breaks, Blood Test,  and Over The Edge delivers the  most stunning novel yet and featuring  psychologist-detective Dr. Alex Delaware. At a party for a  controversial Los Angeles sex therapist, Alex  encounters a face from his own past--Sharon Ransom, an  exquisite, alluring lover who left him abruptly more  than a decade earlier. Sharon now hints that he  desperately needs help, but Alex evades her. The  next day she is dead, an apparent suicide. Driven by  guilt and sadness, Alex plunges into the maze of  Sharon's life--a journey that will take him through  the pleasure palaces of California's ultra-rich,  into the dark closets of a family's disturbing  past, and finally into the alleyways of the mind,  where childhood terrors still hold sway.

    " the first JK novel that I read after that I keep on reading his book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Al Canary | 2/12/2014

    " I picked this up at my Library for 50cts & truly enjoyed Chap 1-15 with "Alex" as a Newbie. From that point on our hero seems to get very "learned" in a hurry, with the storyline disintegrating into the usual pattern of "Cops & Shrink" I enjoyed Kellerman at first, but I'm finding him as predictable as His newer work. Ho Hum! "

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

    " Still really liking this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/27/2014

    " Okay, this book was so intriguing that I started reading it again in 2010 and got about a quarter of the way through before I realized I'd read it before. Strange twists one would never expect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 1/26/2014

    " Old "twin" girlfriend commits suicide. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Cohen | 1/24/2014

    " One of the better ones in the series "

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

    " This book was definitely different from the other books in this series. I would say that this book went a lot into the psychology of the characters, and that itself was the real mystery. I like Kellerman because I'm interested in psych, therefore, I find this stuff interesting, however, if you like more action, I can see how you would not enjoy this book. For instance, I saw in one review that someone stated that they did not like how they had to read Sharon's whole thesis. I'm assuming that they got bored. It's funny because I thought that part was really cool, and I was sucked into the book at that point. I am happy that Kellerman put something like that in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Hilton | 12/31/2013

    " This is a very interesting Alex Delaware mystery with a great deal of psychological background to it. Toward the end the plot becomes so twisted that it seems a bit forced, but it's still a very good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laine | 12/16/2013

    " I needed to read this one again, fascinating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jojo | 12/14/2013

    " Great book that I thoroughly enjoyed despite the sore throat & sneezing that the Book Police infected me with. Amazingly intricate relationships between the many characters but Kellerman pulls it off with great skill. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 12/3/2013

    " This wasn't my favorite novel. It was a short book. As embarrassing as it is I actually got lost as to who was who. Their were a lot of characters that popped up and not a lot of time to explain. I still enjoyed the story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 11/14/2013

    " I had stopped reading Jonathan Kellerman as they were getting to all be the same. Picked this up in the free pile in Bali. And I could hardly put it down! As all his books, pretty unlikely story, but the twinships and the mystery of it all kept me riveted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 El | 11/2/2013

    " Very good story - very convoluted ... just like I prefer it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Brateman | 10/28/2013

    " Engrossing and slow. Intriguing, twisted, but single threaded. That bitch be crazy! A little too perfect for my taste, but entertaining, so I guess I had to rate it over 2 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Hill Alexander | 10/28/2013

    " My first Kellerman novel and I'm glad I read this book. There were a few expected suprises that will keep you anxious to know what will happen next. I'll definitely reading more from Kellerman. "

    " This book was a very different read. It was interesting, but it was very much in the head type of book. Not much action, but it was very interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C | 3/2/2013

    " It was ok. A little long and the ending appeared predictable. I would still continue to read the Alex Delaware series to see how the characters continue and develop. "
