The L.A. Setting is always interesting, and Dr. Delaware has seen his share of celebrity patients. Five years ago he worked with Ovid, the five year-old son of actress Zelda Chase. He is surprised to hear that now it is Zelda's turn to need his help and goes to her assistance. Soon after he works with her, she is found dead on the grounds of her Bel Air estate, and Ovid is missing. Alex calls excellent detective and good friend, LAPD Lieutenant, Milo Sturgis to help him with the case.
As in all of the Alex Delaware books I have read, the relationship between Alex and Milo is one of my favorite parts. I also enjoy Kellerman's ability to make complicated plots understandable to his readers. He builds murder upon murder in this one, exposes family secrets, presents us with clues to missing people, and all-in-all builds towards a satisfying conclusion.
If you haven't been introduced to Alex Delaware before, you will still enjoy this book. If you like what you read, I suggest you then start with book one, When the Bough Breaks, and just keep going.
