It is a case unlike any psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware has ever encountered. Five-year-old Woody Swope is ill, but the real problem is his parents. They refuse to agree to the one treatment that could save this boy's life.
Alex sets out to convince Mr. and Mrs. Swope - only to find that the parents have left the hospital and taken their son with them. Worse, the sleazy motel room where the Swopes were staying is empty - except for the ominous bloodstain. The Swopes and their son have vanished into the sordid shadows of the city.
Now Alex and his friend, homocide detective Milo Sturgis, have no choice but to push the law to the breaking point. They've entered an amoral underworld where drugs, dreams, and sex are all for sale...where fantasies are fulfilled at any price - even at the cost of a young boy's life.

"A suspenseful thriller whose solution lies in the darker recesses of the human soul." (The Wall Street Journal)
I would recommend this book as I would all of Jonathan Kellerman's books. Insightful, clever, well told and great characters who come alive in the story.
I love the development of the main characters.
The main character, probably because we get to know him better than the others. He is tough but very compassionate and not afraid to show his softer side
Hi voice. LOOOOOOOOVE his deep timbre.
I could have but I buy my books to listen to when I go walking every day so it is done an hour at a time. I have just ordered Book Three in the series so that says something about my feelings.
