Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Psychologist Alex Delaware and detective Milo Sturgis struggle to make sense of a seemingly inexplicable massacre in this electrifying psychological thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense. LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis has solved a lot of murder cases. On many of them--the ones he calls "different"--he taps the brain of brilliant psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware. But neither Alex nor Milo are prepared for what they find on an early morning call to a deserted mansion in Bel Air. This one's beyond different. This is predation, premeditation, and cruelty on a whole new level. Four people have been slaughtered and left displayed bizarrely and horrifically in a stretch limousine. Confounding the investigation, none of the victims seems to have any connection to any other, and a variety of methods have been used to dispatch them. As Alex and Milo make their way through blind alleys and mazes baited with misdirection, they encounter a crime so vicious that it stretches the definitions of evil"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 December #1
    Behind an empty faux castle lurking above Beverly Hills, four bodies are found inside a limousine, arranged in a blood-strewn erotic tableau. Behind the driver, the killer has positioned the bodies of playboy Ricky Gurnsey, street-worn Mary Jane Huralnik, and Benny Alvarez, who recently disappeared from a group home for developmentally delayed adults. It's a psych case if there ever was one, so Homicide Lieutenant Milo Sturgis reaches out to his closest friend, consulting psychologist Alex Delaware. Given the sexualized crime scene, Gurnsey's exploits are a logical starting point, but Milo and Alex shift focus when a staffer from Alvarez's group home is murdered. Something is off with Benny's boss, art-gallery owner Medina Okash, but each lead begs more questions after ties are discovered to the art world's dark history. This complex revenge tale is another treat for Kellerman's many fans, and newcomers who have somehow missed the iconic Alex Delaware series can easily jump on board here; Milo and Alex's partnership is crime-solving magic, and free this time of inside jokes.
