Publisher's Summary

The voice belongs to a woman, but Dr. Alex Delaware remembers a little girl. It is 11 years since seven-year-old Melissa Dickinson dialed a hospital help line for comfort - and found it in therapy with Alex Delaware. Now the lovely young heiress is desperately calling for the psychologist's help once more. Only this time it looks like Melissa's deepest childhood nightmare is really coming true....

Twenty years ago, Gina Dickinson, Melissa's mother, suffered a grisly assault that left the budding actress irreparably scarred and emotionally crippled. Now her acid-wielding assailant is out of prison and back in L.A. - and Melissa is terrified that the monster has returned to hurt Gina again. But before Alex Delaware can even begin to soothe his former patient's fears, Gina, a recluse for 20 years, disappears. And now, unless Delaware turns crack detective to uncover the truth, Gina Dickinson will be just one more victim of a cold fury that has already spawned madness - and murder.

    "Not your average Delaware novel"

    I suppose Kellerman was still learning what readers wanted at the time he was writing this one. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't the typical murder, cop banter, and casting out wild suppositions between Milo and Alex. Normally, the victims aren't very fleshed-out and even though they get a pretty good understanding of them, they don't always understand the victim's psyche. That was a nice addition to this book, really getting to know the characters. Normally, I can tell from early which direction the book is going, but not with this one. I knew a few things, but there were plenty of twists and surprises.

    This was the second I've listened to with this narrator, and while I've gotten used to Alexander Adams, he's still not my favorite. The way he pronounces certain words irritates me. Like putting a long I sound in "short-lived," it just didn't sit right with me. I could have chosen to go with the other Audible version of this book, but it was abridged, and I didn't want to sacrifice parts of the story just because of the narration.

    "Love series, this one was slow."

    I am a big fan of this series, but this book moved slow and was hard to really get into.

    "love this book"

    The story is compelling and the narrator changes voices so I always know who is speaking. This is a great audio book.
