Description
In the realm of psychological suspense, Jonathan Kellerman is without peer. Now, following an extraordinary eleven successive New York Timesbestsellers, he has written an Alex Delaware novel to match his best--about the murder of a celebrity author and the truth behind her public facade.She was found stabbed to death on a quiet, shady street in one of L.A.'s safest neighborhoods. For three months the police have found no clues to the murder ofHope Devane, psychology professor and controversial author of a pop-psych bestseller, an angry indictment of men. Now Detective Milo Sturgis, newly assigned to the case, turns to his psychologist friend, Dr. Alex Delaware, looking for insights into Devane's life.To both men the cold stalking of Hope Devane suggests calculation fueled by hate--an execution. They discover why as they unlock, one by one, the veryprivate compartments of her life: her marriage, her shadowy work for a Beverly Hills clinic, the Conduct Committee she ran with an iron hand at theUniversity, and her baffling link to another murder victim. But it is when Alex delves into her childhood that he begins to understand the formidable woman she was--and the ties that entangled her life until the horrifying act of betrayal that ended it.  Building to a white-knuckle climax in which Alex sets a trapfor a killer, The Clinic is brilliantly plotted suspense as wrenchingly disturbing as today's headlines.
