Publication Date: 2009 Series: Alex Delaware
In a half-built mansion in Los Angeles, a watchman stumbles onto the bodies of a young couple—murdered and left in a gruesome postmortem embrace.
Veteran homicide cop Milo Sturgis is shocked at the sight: a twisted crime that only Milo and psychologist Alex Delaware can hope to solve. While the female victim’s identity remains in question, her companion is ID’d as eco-friendly architect Desmond Backer, notorious for his power to seduce women. The deeper Milo and Alex dig for clues, the longer the list of suspects grows. But when the investigation veers suddenly in a startling direction, it’s the investigators who may wind up on the wrong end of a cornered predator’s final fury.
I was disappointed in this book because Alex Delaware played such a small part in the story line. He wasn’t really needed and this should have been called a Milo Sturgis Novel. Also, there was too much dialogue and not enough action. If I were rating this book I’d give it two and a half stars. Sorry, Mr. Kellerman.
