The voice belongs to a woman, but Dr. Alex  Delaware remembers a little girl. It is eleven  years since seven-years-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 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 twenty, 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.… (més)

I first read this book about a quarter of a century ago and I'm certain I would have rated it higher back then - I kept it for 25 years for goodness sake.
This time I found it hard going. Pages and pages of unnecessary description, and needless flashbacks. I found myself skimming these sections to get to the next appearance of Milo. Because Milo = action, which moved the plot (such as it was) forward. Also Milo is an interesting character, an out gay cop in a steady relationship. And with so many gay characters in this book it was intriguing to see his reactions to them and the parts they played in the drama.
The ending was just ridiculous. Not a clever plot twist but completely out of left field and gratuitous and unnecessarily graphic. It was almost as if Kellerman didn't have a clue where he was going and come up with the ending on the fly. ( )

Definitly on its way to a 5 star rating for the first 500 pages until it descended into a Keystone cops fire drill at the end with a series of confusing and fast moving events that I found hard to follow and accept as a satisfactory conclusion. Detective Milo Sturgis and his loyal friend Dr Alex Delaware, playing the role of Watson to Milo's Sherlock usually face complicated crimes in Southern California in most Kellerman books. This one is a bit different as it features Delaware and Sturgis comes in as second fiddle in a complicated, yet fast moving and fully absorbing plot, where typical of Kellerman, at some point, everybody falls under suspician. In true Charlie Chan style, the culprit emerges at the end and all is revealed. In my mind, the ending of this book betrayed the story, but some might find it pausible. ( )

A good and interesting read, bringing in the uber rich of the Los Angeles area and the psychology of children. Who grow up to become adults. And the adults who influence them. As with most Alex Delaware books the ending was surprising and completely unexpected. ( )

Interesting foray into the realm of the psychological mystery. Full of suspense and with a detective that one can like, it definitely rates three stars. ( )
