Will Find This Latest Psychologist find this latest psychologist Delaware novel as usual featuring co star gay detective Milo Sturgis somewhat puzzling If we didn t know Alex and Milo well we might well find their characters enigmatic with inconsistent action and a pursuit of the clues that borders on hobbyist When a young couple is found murdered with an unnecessary impalement of the female victim Milo and Doc Delaware pick up the case almost on a whim since they impalement of the female victim Milo and Doc Delaware pick up the case almost on a whim since they nearby Apparently Sturgis can partner with Alex almost at will how his presumably high bills get paid is conveniently never addressed While the male is uickly ID d it takes much of the book to discover who the female is generating much of what true suspense there was The rest of the plot gets embroiled with a loosely knit firm of three psychologists specializing in private patient therapy hence the title who as the plot unfolds seem to be involved in a highly shady billing scheme involving ex cons as both patients and well patient pimps Before it s over one of the three gets offed the murdered boy s father disappears and the storyline twists and turns in the wind The ending is unusually inconclusive with our stars making some very interesting value udgments about which bad guys to pursue and which not an outcome we perceived as ridiculously unrealisticKellerman has always been a good story teller but it seems his uality varies widely as his uantity increases Delaware s love life freuently a tiresome thing with ex Robin is a little normal with new lover Allison but their shop talk gets to be a bit much A token cameo by Robin and her dog was ust silly filler and the scenes with Delaware playing good cop bad cop with Sturgis went down poorly We were than tired of the multiple bad guys and by the end barely cared who did what This strikes us as a book that needed to be edited better improve the professionalism of the principles shorten the billing fraud thing which should be contained to the sub plot that it is we can figure out ourselves it provides motive and humanize the dead boy s family by opening up the true facts sooner and we might have something here As it is it s a lukewarm entry in the series. N there’s another gruesomely familiar murder DELAWARE SURMISES THAT HIS INVESTIGATION HAS surmises that his investigation has a nerve As he trolls the twisted wreckage of uick’s tormented last days what he finds isn’t madness but the cold blooded method behind it And as he follows a chain of greed corruption and betrayal snaking hideously through the profession he thought he knew he’ll discover territory where even he never dreamed of treadingAs provocative as it is suspenseful Therapy is premier Kellerman that finds the award winning author firing on all creative cylinders and carrying readers on an electrifying ride to a place only he can take them for an experience they won’t soon forge.

etc after 18 books of this it feels a little over done sometimes Also even though Alex Delaware is theafter 18 books of this it feels a little over done sometimes Also even though Alex Delaware is the of the series I actually don t feel a compelling connection with him as a character The other players in the series feel alive than Delaware himself Alex often comes off as disconnected from the emotion of everything almost non feeling empty emotionally boring It s hard to explain but I can say it is frustrating as a reader I suspect this won t change and I probably will continue with the series I ve made it this far after allWhat I liked about this latest entry was the depth of the plot it was very well done and didn t feel as out there as some of the others did Recommended for any Delaware fan There are some great and surprising characters in this book who unfortunately do nothing surprising I think the reason I rated it so low is because the end disappoints Prior to the ending it is a page turning smart mystery But you ve got to have an ending Good as usual but not one of the best There is a lot of twists with people in Alex s field and the ending is especially well done loved the show down between the villains Full review to come The family especially stands out in th.
