Jonathan Kellerman has made the psychological thriller his own gripping province with his bestselling series of Alex Delaware novels. Now, Delaware’s new adventure leads the sleuthing psychologist on a harrowing exploration into the realm he knows best: the human psyche, in all its complexity, mystery, and terrifying propensity for darkness.“Been a while since I had me a nice little whodunit,” homicide detective Milo Sturgis tells Alex Delaware. But there’s definitely nothing nice about the brutal tableau behind the yellow crime-scene tape. On a lonely lover’s lane in the hills of Los Angeles, a young couple lies murdered in a car. Each bears a single gunshot wound to the head. The female victim has also been impaled by a metal spike. And that savage stroke of psychopathic fury tells Milo this case will call for more than standard police procedure. As he explains to Delaware, “Now we’re veering into your territory.”It is dark territory, indeed. The dead woman remains unidentified and seemingly unknown to everyone. But her companion has a name: Gavin Quick—and his troubled past eventually landed him on a therapist’s couch. It’s there, on familiar turf, that Delaware hopes to find vital clues. And that means going head-to-head with Dr. Mary Lou Koppel, a popular celebrity psychologist who fiercely guards the privacy of her clients . . . dead or alive. But when there’s another gruesomely familiar murder, Delaware surmises that his investigation has struck a nerve. As he trolls the twisted wreckage of Quick’s tormented last days, what he finds isn’t madness, but the cold-blooded method behind it. And as he follows a chain of greed, corruption, and betrayal snaking hideously through the profession he thought he knew, he’ll discover territory where even he never dreamed of treading.As provocative as it is suspenseful, Therapy is premier Kellerman that finds the award-winning author firing on all creative cylinders—and carrying readers on an electrifying ride to a place only he can take them, for an experience they won’t soon forget.

I'm a huge fan of the Alex Delaware series and this book reminded me why.

It starts with a gruesome murder and only escalates from there as things start getting much more complicated than they seem.

The dialogue is superb in these novels and all the different characters you encounter besides Alex and Milo are really fun to read about. Kellerman luckily tones down his descriptions of driving and the general architecture and geography of where things are taking place, which means the pacing is really quick and entertaining.

Yet another excellent entry in this mystery/thriller series, and highly recommended for fans of the genre.

This is a solid Kellerman outing, and the 4 stars are for fans. Kellerman is once again examining the questionable ethics of many of those involved in his first calling, psychology and its many manifestations. I have always found refreshing his insights and criticisms of the pretenses and false assumptions, grandiosity and outright chicanery practiced by many in the profession. (His debunking of the "diminished capacity" defense in "Over the Edge" was unforgettable).
Alex Delaware is free from constraints now. Robin and her dislike of his avocation as police consultant is gone; his new girlfriend, Allison, shares his fascination with the dark side of human behaviour; and Milo is now a LAPD Detective Lt. and free to pick whatever cases interest him, which means he and Alex can free-range all over LA with abandon and pursue whatever Jonathan Kellerman wants them to.
In this outing, not only is Kellerman taking another hard look at psychological malpractice or, at the least, incompetence, but he has some other targets in sight as well. Kellerman seems to have become very aware of how much a certain international organization has become a feeding trough for corruption and greed (probably learned while researching "The Butcher's Theatre"), and he details that game quite well.
At any rate, he understands the world of grants, and the intersection of politics and social programs, and good intentions gone awry as well as anyone.
I will not divulge the plot other than to say that what at first appears to be a simple murder turns out to be much more than that. Having glanced at some of the negative reviews, I will concede that this isn't Jonathan at his most passionate, but umpty umpteen books into the series, that is to be sort of expected. But it is a solid effort, and if you enjoy his writing (I do) and if you enjoy his ruminations and insights on the world around us (I do), you will enjoy this book.

I picked this book because I have been reading the entire Alex Delaware novels. I discovered that he was back to his normal style of writing and the book held my attention throughout the book. I haven't been as happy with the last two books. I liked this book better than his last one. Up until these last two books I would be so caught up in the book that I wouldn't be able to put it down until I had read the entire the book. It just seems that Mr Kellerman has been writing the same book over and over with the same plot and plugging in different secondary characters. I do plan on reading the next book in the series and hope that this isn't true of the rest of the series.

I am a big fan of Kellerman's books. There is a comfortable human quality to the reoccurring characters in his books such as Milo Sturgis, the gluttonous, witty gay detective. There are always plot twists and turns to keep you guessing. Psychologist Alex Delaware and Det. Sturgis make an unlikely team of sleuths but they always get the job done. Curling up with a Kellerman mystery is like spending time with a good friend.

A young couple is found dead in a car in Beverly Hills. Milo Sturgis and Alex Delaware begin an investigation. The young woman is proving to be difficult to identify. They soon discover the young man was being seen by psychologist Mary Lou Koppel. In a strange twist, it is revealed that another patient of Koppel's was murdered a little over a year ago. Another murder soon follows. The first half of this book was great with Milo and Alex tracking down clues. Then the pace slows a bit and the plot becomes a little scattered. At first, I thought the international angle was over the top, but by the end it made more sense. I always enjoy the interaction between Milo and Alex and it was in good supply in this outing. So, although the story bogged down in places and at times seemed over-complicated, it was an interesting read and the good ending left me satisfied.

Kellerman weaves his usual complex and detail-oriented plot in this newest Delaware book, but I found myself getting frustrated with the rather convoluted plot and resolution, and glad I'd finally finished the read. One thing that I believe the author needs to do and hasn't done in this long series is provide more detail on Milo's home life with Rick, even from Alex's 'I' viewpoint. Milo is an integral character, and we barely have scratched the surface of how he is in a non-police situation with his long-time partner, Rick. Come on: how about a plot that brings Rick and their homelife into an integral case so that we can get a better look at this special character?

Alex and Milo cont their crime solving with a back and forth psychological vs the detective/cop dialog which keeps changing theories. This is an earlier one I missed. Like the later ones better.
I have enjoyed this series so much
