Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

The #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of the psychological thriller makes all the right moves in this novel of spellbinding suspense.

Even with all his years of experience, LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis knows there are crimes his skill and savvy cannot solve alone. That’s when he calls on brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware to read between the lines, where the darkest motives lurk. And if ever the good doctor’s insight is needed, it’s at the scene of a murder as baffling as it is brutal.

There’s no spilled blood, no evidence of a struggle, and, thanks to the victim’s missing face and hands, no immediate means of identification. And there’s no telling why the disfigured corpse of a stranger has appeared in an upscale Los Angeles family’s home. Chet Corvin, his wife, and their two teenage children are certain the John Doe is unknown to them. Despite that, their cooperation seems guarded. And that’s more than Milo and Alex can elicit from the Corvins’ creepy next-door neighbor—a notorious cartoonist with a warped sense of humor and a seriously antisocial attitude.

As the investigation ensues, it becomes clear that this well-to-do suburban enclave has its share of curious eyes, suspicious minds, and loose lips. And as Milo tightens the screws on potential persons of interest—and Alex tries to breach the barriers that guard their deepest secrets—a strangling web of corrupted love, cold-blooded greed, and shattered trust is exposed. Though the grass may be greener on these privileged streets, there’s enough dirt below the surface to bury a multitude of sins—including the deadliest.

“Narrator John Rubinstein brings to life Jonathan Kellerman’s dynamic duo of psychologist Alex Delaware and gruff, gay, and always hungry Detective Milo Sturgis…The majority of the story is told through dialogue rather than action. This is where John Rubinstein exercises his many talents in giving voice to the lead characters and to a host of secondary characters who are victims and suspects…In perfect sync with Kellerman’s tone and pace, Rubinstein provides a truly engaging listening experience.” AudioFile

“One of the most tightly plotted, tightly written of the Alex Delaware series…a taut procedural thriller…Fans of the long-running Delaware series will be thrilled with this one, and, because each book functions just fine as a stand-alone, there’s nothing keeping new readers from diving in here.” Booklist
