Summary:

Jonathan Kellerman has made the psychological thriller his own gripping province with his bestselling series of Alex Delaware novels. Now, Delaware’s new adventure leads the sleuthing psychologist on a harrowing exploration into the realm he knows best: the human psyche, in all its complexity, mystery, and terrifying propensity for darkness.

“Been a while since I had me a nice little whodunit,” homicide detective Milo Sturgis tells Alex Delaware. But there’s definitely nothing nice about the brutal tableau behind the yellow crime-scene tape. On a lonely lover’s lane in the hills of Los Angeles, a young couple lies murdered in a car. Each bears a single gunshot wound to the head. The female victim has also been impaled by a metal spike. And that savage stroke of psychopathic fury tells Milo this case will call for more than standard police procedure. As he explains to Delaware, “Now we’re veering into your territory.”

It is dark territory, indeed. The dead woman remains unidentified and seemingly unknown to everyone. But her companion has a name: Gavin Quick—and his troubled past eventually landed him on a therapist’s couch. It’s there, on familiar turf, that Delaware hopes to find vital clues. And that means going head-to-head with Dr. Mary Lou Koppel, a popular celebrity psychologist who fiercely guards the privacy of her clients . . . dead or alive.

But when there’s another gruesomely familiar murder, Delaware surmises that his investigation has struck a nerve. As he trolls the twisted wreckage of Quick’s tormented last days, what he finds isn’t madness, but the cold-blooded method behind it. And as he follows a chain of greed, corruption, and betrayal snaking hideously through the profession he thought he knew, he’ll discover territory where even he never dreamed of treading.

As provocative as it is suspenseful, Therapy is premier Kellerman that finds the award-winning author firing on all creative cylinders—and carrying readers on an electrifying ride to a place only he can take them, for an experience they won’t soon forget.

    This is the shorter version of a good story Was not able yet to get thr unabridged version. Entertaining to hrar the story as Delaware and Milo interact Reader was easy to listen to, and he made the story worth hearing. Kellerman writes good stories.

    Delaware and Milo are again out to solve a murder. This case involve more information about psychological therapy than prior books. Also one of the murdered women was a psychologist. So a bit of information about legal issues about pt files was provided. John Rubinstein did a good job narrating the book.

    I've read all of the Alex Delaware novels, but this is only my second of the audiobook versions. Kellerman's books should always be heard unabridged, otherwise you miss the humorous details with which he describes his many flawed characters. Four out of five stars (instead of 5) because this book seemed to be a long string of interviews conducted by Alex and/or Milo, with few other scenarios. Missing was the thrilling sense of danger present in the other novels. Still Kellerman's character studies are brilliant and always rise above mediocre. The narrator is a genius with accents. I'm on a search now to find books with the same narrator.

    Well, I did it again! I had already listened to this book and ordered it again. Anyway, it was just as good the second time!

    Alex Delaware and Milo are back. For fans of Kellerman, you will listen and be entertained. There is a nice familiarity in the characters who remain constistanly interesting. I recommend this one for fans, for new readers, I think there are better Kellerman novels to start off with.

    I am a huge fan of mystery books and was excited to see a series I had not read/listened to yet. This was the first of Mr. Kellerman's books I had tried. What a disappointment! The text spends way too much time off on superfluous details about food, clothes, fashions, etc... and the reader did an okay job with the voice of the friend of the main character, Milo, but otherwise was a disappointment too. I got 2/3's of the way through and called it a day. I won't try again.

    This is my second Alex Delaware and Milo novel. Another great who dunit.

  • Melissa Maurice

    Good story, interesting and multi-dimensional characters. The plot is good too, easy to follow...deals with a scam involving therapy for ex-cons and ultimately murder. Kellerman's recurring Dr. Delware and his best friend, Milo - continuing to be interesting and engaging. I would recommend this one for Kellerman fans as well as someone looking for good action!
