Publisher's Summary

For three months, the police find no clues in the stabbing death of Hope Devane, the author of a pop-psychology best-seller. So they turn to Dr. Alex Delaware to study the case for insights that might point to a killer.

As Alex unlocks the private compartments of Hope's life, the murder looks calculated and vengeful. A study of her childhood reveals that she kept secrets from everyone. It also helps Alex set a trap for the killer.

Psyched? Listen to all of Jonathan Kellerman's Dr. Alex Delaware thrillers.

©1996 Jonathan Kellerman; (P)1997 Books on Tape Inc.

    "Fair"

    I found the book fair reading, yet perdictable. I felt it was extremly slow at points but rushed thrgh the climax at the end.

    "A Rather Abrupt Ending"
    What made the experience of listening to The Clinic the most enjoyable?

    The story line was good and the method of reaching the proper conclusion was outstanding


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jonathan Kellerman? Why or why not?

    I am reading the entire Alex Delaware series from book #1 to the conclusion


    Which character – as performed by Alexander Adams – was your favorite?

    Alex Delaware was he best


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because the length of the reading was longer than 8 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book, right up until the ending which was rather abrupt, with no handshake or thank you ma'am

    "Brilliant narration"

    Alexander Adams gets better and better. His characterization is masterly, bringing out everything from pathos to humor.

    "So many characters"

    I am a regular consumer of audible, and yet I found this book to be rather confusing due to the sheer numbers of characters. If I had it to do over again I would've kept notes on who is who.
    The narration was excellent and I enjoyed the plot, but the dozens of characters were confusing for me. Not a great book to listen to while you're driving.

    "kept me interested and wanting more"

    The narrator made this book interesting. The actual story was really good. The writer's style reminds me of Steven White. A writer I also enjoy very much. I recommend this book and writer.

    "My least favorite Alex Delaware book!"

    Out of all of the Alex Delaware books, this is probably my least favorite. It was very unrealistic and I never could grasp that this could possibly be a real murder investigation.
