For psychologist-detective Dr. Alex Delaware, the chant, repeated over and over like a twisted nursery rhyme, is the first intimation that he is about to enter a living nightmare. If Alex fails to discover the escalating pattern of violence and to decipher the twisted logic of the stalker's mind games, he will be the next to die.
Psyched? Listen to all of Jonathan Kellerman's Dr. Alex Delaware thrillers.

"The prolific best-selling author keeps the reader involved through some rather fantastic plot turns." (Library Journal)
This was unnecessarily graphic in inappropriate places. It lacked excitement and was (except for the dog), a boring, drawn out, uneventful waste of time. The voice of the reader did not add much to the story. This was not a tale, but a passing acknowledgement of something that took place that could have been summed up in 1 sentence. I listened to the end, but the story never redeemed itself in my estimation.
This author was recommended to me. The story had a lot of dialogue and very little action. On top of that, nothing was solved. They weren't even close. The killer is self revealed and was never suspected. I couldn't wait for this long winded story to be over.
Interesting, but too many characters and subplots for a audiobook. Not a great narration and the characters are hard to tell apart audibly. Overall, the book is a decent way to pass time, but the climax is frustrating as it's not built up to.
