Publisher's Summary

A woman's body is found in marshland outside LA. By the next morning the police have discovered the decaying corpses of three more women. They were all prostitutes except for the most recent victim; a classically trained pianist employed by a wealthy family, Selena Bass seems out of place in the grim tableau. Psychologist Alex Delaware is drafted in by homicide detective Milo Sturgis to help with the case. Details of the crimes suggest a serial killer is prowling LA's gritty streets. But when a new murder deviates from the pattern, derailing a possible profile, Alex and Milo must look beyond the suspicion of madness...and consider an even more sinister mind at work. There are no easy answers, for the darkest of drives and desires will fuel the most devious of foes.

Just too many characters

Typical Jonathan Kellerman story but there were too many characters for me to keep up with, especially for my "stop-start" reading/listening. I couldn't remember how each character fit in and I kept having to go back. Eventually, I gave up and ploughed on forward.
Jeff Harding is brilliant.
