Kellerman's fans will especially enjoy this installment in his series about child psychologist Alex Delaware. However, a large part of it centers on gay detective Mike Sturgis, whose story is told in the third person, unlike Delaware's, which is told in the first person. The book contains the usual elements: grisly murders; convoluted plot lines with numerous villains, some of them cops; assorted red herrings; lots of violence; and a morally murky resolution, all beginning with a photo album of murder victims sent to Delaware anonymously. Reader John Rubinstein is superb. Quick-paced, dramatic, with consistent and accurate character differentiation and a flawless presentation, he makes a good novel into an even better audiobook. T.H.
