Publisher's Summary

Psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware confronts a killer who takes as much pleasure in matching wits with the police as in taking lives. A diplomat's retarded daughter is murdered on a school field trip. The girl's father denies the possibility of a political motive, leaving LAPD detective Milo Sturgis and his longtime friend, Alex Delaware, stymied. When another killing occurs, Alex finds himself ensnared in one of the most menacing cases of his career. The psychologist ultimately goes undercover to expose the smug brutality of a deadly conspiracy in Jonathan Kellerman's chilling portrait of evil.

Survival of the Fittest

The story line was enjoyable to listen to, but the narrator was terrible. The worst I have heard on your books.

Decent Book, Bad Sound

The actual book was pretty good, but the ending just sort of came up and there were lots of unexplainied things. Entertaining though, for sure.

The narration and the sound were terrible. Lines were repeated that were obvious edits. The volume of the narration would go from practically inaudibly quiet to startingly loud. I don't think that a single internal person listened to this recording post-edit for quality control.

A few voices were great, but others either sounded alike or were very very odd. There were several mispronunciations and misreadings that were irritating.

Fine for pure entertainment, but a real subpar recording overall.
