Publisher's Summary

Who killed the killer?

In his brilliant and startling novel, Jonathan Kellerman, perennial best-selling author and premier proprietor of the psychological thriller, gives a sharp and timely twist to homicide's central question.

Someone has murdered euthanasia champion Dr. Eldon Mate - a self-styled Dr. Death responsible for scores of assisted suicides. In a burst of bloody irony, the killer chooses to dispatch the doctor in the back of Mate's own suicide van, hooking him up to the killing apparatus dubbed "the Humanitron" - and adding some butchering touches of his own. The case is assigned to veteran LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, who turns once again to his friend Dr. Alex Delaware. But working this case raises a conflict of interest for Alex so profound that he can't even discuss it with Milo. The tension that develops between cop and psychologist further complicates an already baffling and complex murder investigation - one whose suspects include the families of Dr. Mate's "travelers", Mate's own son, and a psychopathic killer who relishes the geometry of death.

Dr. Death is a rich brew of unforgettable characters, labyrinthine plotting, pause-resisting prose, and the unique insights into the darkest corners of the human mind that have earned Jonathan Kellerman international accolades as the master of psychological suspense.

    "So extremely disappointing after vocalist Alexander Adams"

    Ohhh man just awful, horrible and very very bad. After Alexander Adams' fabulous voice - his Milo *is* and forever will be MILO - this rendition by John Rubinstein is just way beyond awful. I am extremely disappointed in Rubinstein's reedy, effeminate voice. I purchased 3 Rubinstein-read Deleware/Sturgis books without listening first and I plan to contact Amazon tomorrow for a refund.

    It's hard to describe my disappointment in the change from Adams to Rubinstein, but to the publisher or to Mr. Kellerman (whomever made the decision to make this change): you made a big mistake, and you've ruined what had been a lovely listening experience for a fan and owner of all of Mr. Kellerman's books, hardcover. Just, YUCK. What a letdown.

    "Good book"

    Thought it was a little slow getting started but once I got past that, I found the book really engrossing. The book is well written and I think Kellerman fans will enjoy this one.

    "Not his best."

    It was as if the plot was too disjointed. I know how Jonathan Kellerman can be very subtle with the characters but this one went a little overboard. I found myself having to re listen to sections because the thread got lost several times. It took too much effort to finish.
