A series of well-publicized gentle deaths are the work of self-appointed angel of mercy Dr. Eldon Mate, who attends to the terminally ill in cheap hotel rooms or in the back of his van. Now Mate himself is dead, carved up and found by two joggers and their dog on a high road above Los Angeles. Like Kellerman's previous bestsellers, this title features psychologist Alex Delaware, whose self-righteous pomposity blends neatly, as it has before, into a narrative liberally dosed with psycho-angles...

Not Kellerman's Best Work, July 11, 2003 Reviewer: A reader from Sherman Oaks, Ca. USA The book is a great deal of setup, followed by some boring filler. After reading more than half of the novel, I flipped to the end and still had trouble with understanding the plot. The book lacks passion and the characters are one dimensional. Kellerman has written some wonderful books in the past but this isn't one of them. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
