Even hundreds of closed cases to his credit can't keep LAPD lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonising over the crimes that don't get solved--and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end--one even psychologist Alex Delaware's expert insight can't explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case--because there is always a next one. This time the victim is Ursula Corey, a successful, attractive divorcee who's been gunned down--not a robbery but an execution, a crime that smacks of simple, savage revenge. And along with that theoretical motive come two strong contenders for the role of suspect: the dead woman's business partner/ex-husband and her divorce lawyer/secret lover. But just as Alex and Milo think they're zeroing in on the killer, a bizarre new clue stirs up echoes of the unsolved Hennepin murder. And the discovery of yet another crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the spectre of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulative and cunning madness.

The plot is a little farfetched, but Delaware is still a real psychologist who acts and talks and thinks like a real clinical psychologist and not like someone's half-baked notion of one. Yeah, he's jazzed up for the sake of the stories, but has a back story of his own to explain it. He sounds like Kellerman's alter ego.....

Kellerman's books seem to get more and more farfetched as the years go by. This one was not great.

Read the book and couldn't find any redeeming points for it. The plot went on about multiple murders and ended on a flat note. No need to wait anxiously for this book!

Dumb and Dumber. Or perhaps, the dumbest yet.
