Publisher's Summary

After 35 riveting, internationally acclaimed novels of psychological suspense, number-one New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Kellerman returns with his most stunning thriller to date. Killer is a mesmerizing L.A. noir portrayal of the darkest impulses of human nature carried to shocking extremes.
The City of Angels has more than its share of psychopaths, and no one recognizes that more acutely than the brilliant psychologist and police consultant Dr. Alex Delaware. Despite that, Constance Sykes, a sophisticated, successful physician, hardly seems like someone Alex needs to fear. Then, at the behest of the court, he becomes embroiled in a bizarre child custody dispute initiated by Connie against her sister and begins to realize that there is much about the siblings he has failed to comprehend. And when the court battle between the Sykes sisters erupts into cold, calculating murder and a rapidly growing number of victims, Alex knows he’s been snared in a toxic web of pathology.
Nothing would please Alex more than to be free of the ugly spectacle known as Sykes v. Sykes. But then the little girl at the center of the vicious dispute disappears and Alex knows he must work with longtime friend Detective Milo Sturgis, braving an obstacle course of Hollywood washouts, gangbangers, and self-serving jurists in order to save an innocent life.
Killer is Kellerman - and Delaware - at their finest.

Probably Weakest Yet in the Series

As always John Rubinstein did a great job as the voice of Alex Delaware. Unfortunately he didn't have too much to work with here. Kellerman seemed to have have pretty much phoned this one in. A great deal of extraneous detail that failed to move the story ahead; If you're a fan of the series it's worth a credit; if not choose another book in the series. I have a hard time seeing anyone who starts with this one becoming much of fan.

Promising start that pretty much fizzled out

I've read numerous Alex Delaware books and this was an "okay." Initially I thought it would be very good based on the most interesting character; she ends up getting killed. I thought there was a lot of filler and have to agree with the reviewer who said if this is the first Delaware book you listen to you probably won't listen to another. The narrator was outstanding and really sounded like different people were narrating, not just one person. He elevated the material. I don't regret the credit I used, but it wasn't riveting - just okay - t I didn't have to devote much brain matter to it while listening.
