Summary

One night of hedonism. Four counts of murder.

A run-down mansion nestled between Beverley Hills and the San Fernando Valley is leased out for one night to house a party big enough to herald the end of days.

When a limo is discovered in the grounds of the house the morning after with four dead bodies inside, a mind-bending case begins.

With no link between the four people in the car, and each of the victims murdered in a different way, psychologist Alex Delaware and LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis are about to begin their grisliest and most baffling case yet.

And as they struggle to make sense of the vicious mass slaying, they will be forced to confront a level of lust and evil for which their combined wisdom can provide no preparation.

Dr Delaware revisited

It's a while since I read one of Jonathan Kellerman's books but I really enjoyed this one with its background of art galleries. The team are still as liberal and compassionate as ever, and as effective!

The Master at his best

I always look forward to these being released. Been a loyal follower since book 1.

This one doesn't disappoint. They really should make this into a TV series. But follow the books don't go off tangent.

Classic Kellerman

Another great story about Delaware, Sturgis and the saintly Robin. The plot gets quite twisted, in every sense of the word, but resolves satisfactorily in the end.

Great series, solid storytelling

This is a great addition to a wonderful series - highly enjoyable. Kellerman's characters are always so vivid - the creepy 'is he/isn't he a psycho' kid was particularly memorable. There are no tricksy (and often tedious) twists, just a good plot, great characters and a mystery slowly picked apart by the good guys, with some added insight from everyone's favourite psychologist. The book is beautifully read and performed by Rubinstein. 5* as usual.
