Publisher's Summary

The doctors call it Munchausen by proxy, the terrifying disease that causes parents to induce illness in their own children. Now, in his most frightening case, Dr. Alex Delaware may have to prove that a child's own mother or father is making her sick.
Twenty-one-month-old Cassie Jones is bright, energetic, the picture of health. Yet her parents rush her to the emergency room night after night with medical symptoms no doctor can explain. Cassie's parents seem sympathetic and deeply concerned. Her favorite nurse is a model of devotion. Yet when child psychologist Alex Delaware is called in to investigate, instinct tells him that one of them may be a monster.
Then a physician at the hospital is brutally murdered. A shadowy death is revealed. And Alex and his friend LAPD detective Milo Sturgis have only hours to uncover the link between these shocking events and the fate of an innocent child.

I much prefer Rubenstein as the reader of the Deleward books. Don't enjoy this reader nearly as much which makes a big difference in the enjoyment of the book.

This book came out in 2003

Kellerman wrote this in 2003, but it's being packaged as a new release. Audible knew that the more foolish among us (me) would take this to mean newly written as well and buy it immediately. This is a rehash of a pretty good story, but one I have already read and paid for. Kellerman is doing this kind of marketing and so is Baldacci. COME ON! Put the original publish dates on your audible page! I wont feel so scammed.
