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.

Somewhat dark. Definitely concentrates on the sexual component of the story. Twisty ending, a trifle fantastic, not one of my favorites among his books.

I didn't enjoy this story as much as previous novels I have read by this Author. I missed the interaction that happens between Alex Delaware and Milo,although there was some, not enough for my liking. This story was rather long,Twists and turns all over the place.An old girlfriend of Alex's was found dead, supposedly "suicide," No investigation by police so Alex does his own.
