Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware returns in this ingenious and breathtakingly good psychological thriller. Not since Jack the Ripper has there been such a gruesome crime scene. One look at the victim's apartment turned charnel house is enough for Milo Sturgis to summon The Crime Reader. But even Alex Delaware's skills may be stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion...with no apparent connection between them. The only clue left behind - a blank page bearing a question mark - seems to be both a menacing taunt and a cry for help from a killer baffled by his own lethal urges. This one will haunt The Crime Reader's waking life, and his darkest dreams, long after its end.
Alex Delaware may be The Crime Reader but his extraordinary skills at understanding criminal behaviour come from Jonathan Kellerman, the ultimate crime writer. Jonathan Kellerman has brought his expertise as a clinical psychologist to more than thirty bestselling crime novels. He is one of the world's most popular authors, creating plots and characters that are among the most unusual and convincing in crime fiction.
