Description

“With his latest, [Jonathan Kellerman] not only brings his ‘A’ game but also ratchets it up a notch or three. . . . Victims will keep you up at night.”—Bookreporter
 
Acid-tongued Vita Berlin hadn’t a friend in the world, but whom did she cross so badly as to end up meticulously arranged in such a gruesome murder scene? One look prompts LAPD detective Milo Sturgis to summon his expert in homicidal maniacs, Alex Delaware. But even Alex is stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion—with no apparent connection among the victims. And the only clue left behind—a blank page bearing a question mark—seems to be both a menacing taunt and a chilling cry for help from a tortured, savage soul. To end the bloody spree and prevent citywide panic, Alex navigates the secretive world of mental health treatment, from the sleek office of a Beverly Hills therapist to a shuttered mental institution where he once learned his craft. As each jagged piece of the puzzle fits into place, a portrait emerges of a sinister mind at its most unimaginable—and an evil soul at its most unspeakable.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Guilt.

    Great book just checking back up with the Delaware series since the last one I read a few years ago. I just hate that Pitty died stupidly to be so cunning. There just wasn't enough confrontation with the villains in the end for me, but still nice read.

    I've been a fan for a long time, but this one is a definite dud. Starts off fine, but on page 420 (on iPad) the entire narrative falls apart. Seems like Kellerman had a deadline and raced through to the finish line.

    I have yet to read a book by Jonathan Kellerman that I can put down. This is definitely one of his best. I have always felt like the characters are real. His writing hooks you right in the beginning and just gets better. Never say no to the offer of a book by Jonathan Kellerman!
