What a great joy to see the DM characters revived! As usual, Mark Sloan will stun you with his attention to detail and skill at solving murders. All of the personality of the characters is coupled with two great mysteries... Lee Goldberg has done a great job! This is a must-read for any fan of the show or anyone who just loves a good mystery.

Finally the magic of Dick Van Dyke's mystery series is back!! Lee Goldberg does a wonderful job of capturing the unique personalities of the characters and details from the series while creating a strong mystery plot. As only a true insider of the series could do, the written accounts of the characters can easily be imagined as occuring on screen. I recommend this book for any fan of the TV series, and for anyone who just enjoys a good mystery novel.

From page one, this is a page-turner. I read it on the plane, and barely noticed the passengers surrounding me OR the lack of food. I've seen some 'Diagnosis: Murder' shows, and always was a fan of the serious mystery shows. This is a fun, surprising ride whether you have seen the show before or not. A perfect escape.

If you're a HUGE Diagnosis Murder Fan then this book is for you. This book was like watching it on television again. You can see all the characters and all the emotions they are going through. Great to have our old friends back again for another ride. Now we can read what the characters are actually thinking. The best book I have read in years. Lee Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Another job well done. Like Author Janet Evanovich said and I quote 'It's no surprise that the book delivers everything you expect from the show.' And yes it is 'very high-octane mystery that moves like a bullet train.'

This book is great fun and Mr. Goldberg tells an excellent story. If you're a fan of Diagnosis Murder the TV show, you'll be happy to see all the old gang back again. The best part is that unlike on the show, the gang moves around a lot to different locations. I can't wait for more.

This book is for all Diagnosis Murder Fans! Everything you read in this book is like watching it on television. Edge of your seat mystery! You get more indepth look at the characters that you couldn't get on television. Teaser: There is a surprise visit from an old friend. Like Author Janet Evanovich said, 'This is a clever,high octane mystery that moves like a bullet train.' Lee you did it once again. Great job. I'm looking forward to the next book 'The Death Merchant.'

As a long time Diagnosis Murder viewer I was so excited to learn that there are novels written by the DM screenwriter. I got this book today and was so pumped to read it that I practically got through it all in one sitting (2 actually). I absolutely LOVED this book! Our favorite characters are back and better than ever in this novel that stays incredibly true to the series. The mysteries keep pulling you in, giving you just enough to think you've got it figured out and then turns another corner so fast it makes your head spin. I can't wait for the next two!

I used to think Diagnosis Murder was just for for my grandparents... until I stumbled on the galleys for this book. You don't need to be a fan of the show to enjoy this genuine whodunit. By genuine, I mean it's fast-moving, clever murder mystery that plays fair with the readers. You'll kick yourself for not figuring out the two... count'em, two... whodunits before Dr. Sloan does. And speaking of Dr. Sloan, it's actually a relief to meet a detective who isn't yet another tortured soul... recovering from a drug addiction, alcoholism, or a divorce... or all of the above. And don't be fooled by the cover... this is a real book, not some hack TV novelisation knock-off. It stands on its own. Goldberg can really write... he had me hooked from the first paragraph. He ought to get out of TV and stick to books. I hope he does, because Dr. Sloan is a likeable, funny, brilliant detective...and I look forward to more of his adventures.

It isn¿t every person who has one, let alone two, very specialized skills but Dr. Mark Sloan, the chief of Internal medicine at Community General Hospital, is one of the rare ones. He is an excellent physician and he is brilliant when it comes to solving homicides. Over the years he has caught many murderers, much to the chagrin of the LAPD, who finds him a personal embarrassment.

To get him out of his hair, LAPD Police Chief John Masters asks him to serve on a cold case task force never believing for a minute that he, an ex-FBI profiler and a true crime writer would find something detrimental to the department. It seems that a serial killer has been operating in the area for years, mimicking other serial killer signatures, which makes Mark think that the murderer is close to the investigations. While he is trying to figure out who that person is, Mark also has to figure out who deliberately killed one of his patients in surgery while making it look like medical incompetence.

The author of this book wrote many of the ¿Diagnosis Murder¿ episodes as well as being the executive producer of the show so it shouldn¿t come as any surprise that Lee Goldberg is brilliant when it comes to characterizations. Readers will believe the people that inhabit the pages of this book actually exist and will like the ones who stay on the right side of the law. This reviewer hopes Mr. Goldberg writes more Diagnosis Murder novels, as they are so much fun to read.
