Publisher's Summary

Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis investigate the death of Alex's most mysterious patient to date in the sensational new thriller from the master of suspense, New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Kellerman.
At nearly 100 years old, Thalia Mars is a far cry from the patients that child psychologist Alex Delaware normally treats. But the charming, witty woman convinces Alex to meet with her in a suite at the Aventura, a luxury hotel with a checkered history.
What Thalia wants from Alex are answers to unsettling questions - about guilt, patterns of criminal behavior, victim selection. When Alex asks the reason for her morbid fascination, Thalia promises to tell all during their next session. But when he shows up the following morning, he is met with silence: Thalia is dead in her room.
When questions arise about how Thalia perished, Alex and homicide detective Milo Sturgis must peel back the layers of a fascinating but elusive woman's life and embark on one of the most baffling investigations either of them has ever experienced. For Thalia Mars is a victim like no other, an enigma who harbored nearly a century of secrets and whose life and death draw those around her into a vortex of violence.
Heartbreak Hotel is classic Delaware and classic Kellerman.


What the Critics Say

"I’m fortunate that John Rubinstein's incredible talents have graced the Alex Delaware novels since the series began. John’s illumination of Alex and Milo is perfectly in tune with my view of the novels. His masterful work is at its best in Heartbreak Hotel - a page-turner that is also Alex and Milo at their best." (Jonathan Kellerman)

Not one of Kellerman's Best

I purchased this audio book based on Jonathan Kellerman's past writings.....I found this not one of his best.....the story is fragmented and did not contain any ideas or themes that spurred my interest to continue listening....I did on past experiences....
If one was not familiar with the main characters...Milo Sturgis (and his peculiarities)...and Robin Castagna, Alex's girlfriend....the impact of their behavior/activities on this story is lost....
Come on Jonathan...you can do better, and I look forward to the old Kellerman's writing in your next novel.....
