A dedicated young psychologist, unschooled in the ways of violent crime and incalculable evil until his life is irreversibly touched by both, is thrust into a chilling hunt for a twenty-first-century Jack the Ripper.

When his brief, passionate romance with nurse Jocelyn Banks is cut short by her kidnapping and brutal murder, Dr. Jeremy Carrier is left emotionally devastated, haunted by his lover’s grisly demise and warily eyed by police still seeking a prime suspect in the unsolved slaying. To escape the pain, he buries himself in his work as staff psychologist at City Central Hospital, only to be drawn deeper into a waking nightmare when more women turn up murdered in the same gruesome fashion as Jocelyn, and the suspicion surrounding Jeremy intensifies. Now, the only way to prove his innocence and put his torment to rest is to follow the trail of a cunning psychopath.

Spurring on Jeremy’s investigation is Dr. Arthur Chess, an enigmatic pathologist who specializes in examining the dead, but harbors a keen fascination with the darker deeds committed by the living. Arthur draws Jeremy into an unexpected friendship, and into the confidence of a cryptic society devoted to matters unknown and unspoken. When he suddenly slips away, Jeremy is left to contend with an onslaught of anonymous clues and the growing realization that a harrowing game of cat and mouse has been set in motion.

But who besides Jeremy is playing, and who is making the rules? Before the killer strikes again, Jeremy races to connect the disturbing puzzle pieces being fed to him. Yet his search for answers only seems to yield more questions. And deepening the mystery is the undeniable presence of someone watching it all, and guiding Jeremy’s investigation from behind the scenes. As the game intensifies, Jeremy must decide if a secret ally is setting him on the right path, or a sadistic enemy is setting him up for a fate far beyond even the most twisted imagination.

    " Quick, easy and ok. Some good descriptions of food but the plot wanders a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dhali | 2/16/2014

    " Good summer reading, very easy read, will keep you entertained... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 2/12/2014

    " I thought the main character figured out who the killer was way to early. It wasn't a very complex mystery. It didn't keep you on your toes very long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Khristine Doiron | 2/8/2014

    " Really slow start but about half way through I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kj | 2/6/2014

    " It pained me to give it only 3 stars but what was this? Where was the characters I love? Was this supposed to be a stand alone? I still love you Alex & the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neal | 1/28/2014

    " This was a pretty good book. Better than the AVERAGE BEACH BOOK. Good development of the main charactor and some good suprises. It deserves a 3.6. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 rheeza layug | 1/28/2014

    " Jonathan Kellerman is a well-known author so i figured to give this a try, my first kellerman book and it didn't dissapoint me. a very interesting plot and it's a read-until-you-drop book. ;) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 1/18/2014

    " I found this book very slow. I thought the idea was interesting but there was little to no action until the last part of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Rasmussen | 12/25/2013

    " another kellerman thriller. it continues his tradition of making me want to keep reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sergey | 12/24/2013

    " It would have been less painful to cut my wrists, quite frankly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin Katz | 12/23/2013

    " A slight departure from the Alex Delaware novels, Kellerman doesn't leave the profession with his main character, just the LA area. I found this character new and very interesting. He wasn't perfect, he just seemed determined, which made me want to keep reading. "

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

    " Another new author for me. I found myself in a state of suspense at various times in this nove. I would have liked to "meet" the villain earlier in the novel, but I guess that would have defeated the purpose of the "conspiracy club". Good story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jewett | 12/5/2013

    " I loved this and appreciated the psychology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Kmetz | 12/1/2013

    " Another great book by Kellerman. I enjoyed this book. The pace was easy. A good summer read. "

    " I usually love Kellerman, but this one only satisfied at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 10/1/2013

    " A little spooky to think how some people can insinuate themselves into places just by appearing they belong...good mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaclyn | 9/25/2013

    " A strange read that keeps you guessing. Gave me a weird sense of deja vu as it is similar to other books of the genre. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marsha | 7/13/2013

    " Slow starter, a little hard to follow - not my favorite of his books, but good ending "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Minrose | 1/13/2013

    " First of all this isn't a Alex Delaware book. I was reading and waiting for him to appear,alas,neither Dr. Delaware nor Milo. The main character wasn't very interesting. It didn't hold my interest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 12/21/2012

    " Too sexual to recommend. Brain manure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace | 11/7/2012

    " This was a good book. I listened to the abridged version, and I can't imagine what the full length book had in it that the abridged version didn't. There were definatlely times that I felt like it dragged on. Overall though, the ending was a surprise and it was worth listening to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 10/16/2012

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

    " An excellent mystery that left me puzzled to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 6/15/2012

    " Psychlogical medical suspense mystery. A secret conspiracy club helps unsuspecting people to find criminals. Kellerman takes the suspense genre to a new level with his turn of a phrase, high brow quotes, vocabulary. A pleasure to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 5/14/2012

    " Jonathan Kellerman - surely my guilty pleasure author. Good story. Different that he didn't have his usual characters of Alex Delaware or Rick Sturgis. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 1/6/2012

    " This book did a good job of keeping my interest. I wanted to know how it would end and therefore was determined to finish it. Its not at all bad, it just didnt have any of that extra awesomeness that stands out to me. Im sure I will quickly forget about reading this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mo | 11/25/2011

    " The main character didnt have any morals... and chapters were very short to build any real interest! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ros | 8/30/2011

    " Actually this was better than I expected and well concluded tale of a doctor tracking a serial killer "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neal | 5/10/2011

    " This was a pretty good book. Better than the AVERAGE BEACH BOOK. Good development of the main charactor and some good suprises. It deserves a 3.6. "

    " Dr. Jeremy Carrier hunts down a twenty-first-century Jack the Ripper. Starts slow but picks up at the end. "

    " Good but not one of his best. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bart | 10/10/2010

    " I give it a "D" for disappointing. An utterly implausible story and no real suspense.

    This book makes me wonder why Kellerman's (once great) books continue to be well reviewed and hit the best seller lists. Habit I guess. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 9/2/2010

    " This books was ok. The first several chapters were mindnumbing, but it did pick up the pace and keep me interested till the end. I might check out his other books with the character Alex Delaware I hear they are much better. "

    " Good book, suspenseful, puzzling to the end. "

    " I always give a book 50 pages. The premise was interesting, but the book really wasn't holding my interest, and when I read on page 58 "She had bosoms you could rest a dictionary on," I gave up. Dude, just say she's stacked. We get it. "
