Loved this book. Now I'm sad it's over, it feels like good friends are going away & I won't see them for awhile. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. Excellent story, excellent characters. Can't wait for his next book.

This book was very disappointing and BORING! Read the whole thing for a book club but had to force myself. Cannot think of ONE redeeming part................sad that Mr. Kellerman couldn't have put more effort into writing it.

I loved this as I do all Alex Delaware books. I would have preferred, however, more antics by Milo.

Homicide detective Lt. Milo Sturgis, along with the LAPD consulting psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware, have been called to a murder scene, where the female victim has been disemboweled in a particularly grotesque manner. Although it first blush it would seem to be a revenge killing, as they gather information about the woman, Delaware is skeptical that this is the case. When, as the title implies, another victim is found, killed in precisely the same horrific manner, and the police are unable to find a single thing in common between the two victims, they must look elsewhere for leads to follow. This is the 27th in this series, and as with the previous entries, it is a police procedural of the highest order – the police doing their thing and Alex Delaware providing insights into the victims and the kind of twisted mind that might be responsible for these murders. The plot and characters are well-developed, and the writing as good as ever. On arriving home one evening, e.g., he speaks of their home in Beverly Glen: “the sinuous silence of the old bridal path leading up to my pretty white house, the prospect of kissing my beautiful girlfriend, patting my adorable dog.” [That would be, respectively, Robin, and Blanche, their little French bulldog.] He describes another character as having “the anxious nobility of a Velasquez prince,” and one particular scene where “the sky was charcoal felt stretched tight. A few stars peeked through like ice-pick wounds.” This was a fast, thoroughly enjoyable read, and it is recommended.

All of the Alex Delaware novels are good, and this is no exception. As always, we have the team of psychologist Alex and his best friend Milo the police detective. This book has a particularly creepy and gruesome killer! I think what made this book so scary and suspenseful was the investigation into old mental health institutions and the people who were locked away for their own (or the public's) safety. The clues leading up to the conclusion were great, the entire plot held me at the edge of my seat. I especially love how Alex and Milo are not unrealistic “perfect” crime solvers, they make errors, go down blind trails, follow red herrings, but keep trying and working at it until the exciting and disturbing ending. It is generally hard to predict what's going to happen in Kellerman's books, and this one was among the most suspenseful, with several twists that I didn't see coming!

Not one of my favorite books by Mr. Kellerman and keep in mind I have been reading his books since when the Bough Breaks. We have Alex, Robin, Milo, Petra and a few other secondary characters from his previous books but to me this book was missing something. I do believe that Mr. Kellerman was trying to write a different type of book. I wouldn’t say that he failed significantly because some people probably gave this book 5 stars but I can’t. There wasn’t the normal rapport between Milo and Alex. The story in the book is these people are getting murdered in a nasty way and the only thing that is left behind is a ? for the clue. There are no witnesses and the murders take place all over. So who is doing the murdering. We know that most of Kellerman books the characters are all tied in some way or another. Well this book nope, you have a bitter divorce woman, an accountant, a married couple, and a street person. I personally didn’t want to hug any of the characters as a matter of fact I didn’t even like the victims are all. All the loose ends weren’t tied up as they usually are in his books. The book kept my interest but that’s about it. So the most I can give it is 3 stars. All in all not a bad read since. You do want to find out why they are getting murdered but I personally didn’t care.
