Five-year-old Woody Swope is ill but his parents refuse to agree to the one treatment that could save his life. Dr. Alex Delaware sets out to convince them only to find that they've left the hospital and taken their son with them. Worse, the sleazy motel room where they had been staying is empty - except for an ominous bloodstain. Now Alex and his friend, homicide detective Milo Sturgis, have no choice but to push the law to the breaking point. They've entered an amoral underworld where drugs, dreams, and sex are all for sale ... where fantasies are fulfilled at any price ... even at the cost of a young boy's life.… (més)

I thought this one was pretty good. There was a young child with cancer, which I thought was interesting. The descriptions of the laminar air flow room was something I had never read. I am glad my daughter didn't have to go through that when she battled cancer.

The second half of the book, the story became pretty convoluted. There is the Touch, a creepy cult that may or may not be involved with the child's abduction. There is an escort service. A possibly crazy father to deal with. A sexually promiscuous teenage daughter. Fruit growers in a small California town. This book tries to throw in a little of everything and then tie it all together. It all does come together in the end, but it seems a little forced. Still I enjoyed reading it. ( )

Second book in the Dr. Alex series. I beleive I read it in 2004 or 2005.

I enjoyed it at the time, but can't remember it at all now.

That's probably what my tombstone will say, isn't it? ( )

An excellent series, the beginning of a long standing saga with Alex and Milo working to solve detective crimes with a psychological bend.

Alex must beat the clock to save a 5-year-old boy with treatable cancer.

The boy, Heywood "Woody" Swope appears to be the one normal foil for his reclusive, fruit obsessed parents and hostile 20-year-old sister, Nona. Named for an apple, Annona Blossom Swope is described in almost feral terms. Matters come to a painful head when Woody is kidnapped from the hospital. The boy's parents and sister also disappear, and Dr. Alex Delaware is immediately in pursuit of this mysterious family.

There is less of a psychological twist in Blood test than in some of the other Jonathan Kellerman books, but plot interest will keep you reading until the end. ( )
