Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling creator of the acclaimed Alex Delaware series comes a tour-de-force novel that introduces an unforgettable new heroine and illustrates perfectly why "Jonathan Kellerman has justly earned his reputation as a master of the psychological thriller" (People).
Brilliant, beautiful, and stunningly effective, psychologist Dr. Grace Blades has a special gift for treating troubled souls and healing tormented psyches - perhaps because she bears her own invisible scars. Only five years old when she witnessed her parents die in a bloody murder-suicide, Grace took refuge in her towering intellect and found comfort in the loving couple who adopted her. But as an adult, Grace's accomplished professional life vies with a covert, high-risk dark side, played out harrowingly. And when Grace's two worlds shockingly converge, her past returns with a vengeance.
The crisis begins when the busy therapist encounters a new patient whose own bleak past seems to eerily echo her own grim childhood. But there's a complication: She's met Andrew Toner before, under bizarre circumstances, and must refuse to treat him. Thinking that this is the last she'll hear of the young man, Grace is stunned to learn he was murdered soon after leaving her office, a vicious crime that leads a homicide investigation to her doorstep.
Shaken by the killing and fearing exposure of her double life, Grace sets out to probe the crime herself. But when she stumbles on the dead man's true identity, a horrifying chapter from her childhood is violently reawakened, forcing her to confront a decades-old act of evil that cries out for retribution. Suddenly stalked by vicious predators, Grace must draw upon the fierce will to survive that has powered her entire life while facing down her darkest personal demons.

Critic Reviews

"Mazur captures Blades's intelligence, intensity, and emotional highs and lows, varying her delivery with every passage. When needed, Mazur speaks in a tone of resigned understatement and then, seemingly without pause, turns it to raging intensity." ( AudioFile)

Do not bother...

What would have made The Murderer's Daughter better?

I don't think anything could have saved this book, other than not writing it, in the first place.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Kellerman again?

I do not believe Jonathon Kellerman wrote this book. It was trite, shallow and made no sense to me. I could not finish this book.

How could the performance have been better?

The female leads voice was so depressing.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no.

Any additional comments?

I am still a fan of Alex Delaware books and look forward to the next installment in the series.

Disappointing

Should be named diary of a schizophrenic. It started good but main character had no interaction with supposed villain. It seemed all about her and you kept waiting for something that could be plausible
