One of the better parts of the books, especially if you've been a fan of the series, is that the witness/juror Lucy has a crush on Milo. I loved this awkward situation!

Dr. Alex Delaware doesn’t see many private patients anymore, but the young woman called Lucy is an exception. So is her dream. Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex by Los Angeles police detective Milo Sturgis. A juror at the agonizing trial of a serial killer, Lucy survived the trauma only to be tormented by a recurring nightmare: a young child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act.Now Lucy’s dream is starting to disrupt her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The power of the dream, its grip on Lucy’s emotions, suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It may be the repressed childhood memory of something very real. Something like murder.

These series are just getting more annoying with every installment.
I think by now, I do not like the basic idea of a amateur doing investigations. Especially in the way THIS amateur is doing them. It is okay when Ms. Marple does it.
The main character of these series is utterly unlikable. What is there to like about somebody who is making up crimes so that he could go and snoop after people, all the while his girlfriend is slavering in her guitar shop and supervises construction of HIS house? He has a buzz in his backside that makes him drive around at any time of day or night, spy on whomever he picks out next for a suspect, very unrealistically but conveniently for the author gets to places just in time to catch something of interest.
He NEVER says or does anything that would make people like him and open up to him - but they still do, even a hard-core killer feels it necessary to educate him on the motives and circumstances of the crime while holding a gun to his head. And he stays arrogant and righteous even with the gun pointed at his head!
But of course - the miraculous escape every time. Unbelievable.

In Self-Defense Kellerman creates a fascinating cast of potential bad guys for Dr. Delaware. His patient Lucy's father, a Salingeresque writer/poet/painter, is particularly interesting. His dialogues -- well, monologues -- are amazing. Kellerman takes this character beyond the level of the popular mystery genre.

On the downside, Dr. Delaware's sidekick Milo Sturgis barely features in this installment. It is almost entirely Delaware's book.

Right up until the last 25 or 30 pages, I was going to give this Self-Defense five stars, but the entire wrap-up rambles on and on and on. After such a page-turning set up, the writing turns stolid as Kellerman tries to tie all the lose ends together and resolve the many story lines. Like a dinner with too many courses, the ending left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

I love the Alex Delaware series!! I've read most of them. This book had Alex sleuthing mostly solo. Milo was pretty much back-up and working another case. It worked though. Between them two cases were solved. I didn't get my Milo did I love the character and liked that Lucy was attracted to him. We always hear him described and he seems very unattractive but I like his sense of humor and generosity. Good story and another good book Mr. Kellerman.

This is the first Jonathan Kellerman book I have read and I loved it. He writes in a manner in which you can understand what a psychotherapist sees in his patients and his determination to help them. There were many wacky characters in this books which added to never a dull moment. You pity poor Lucy Lowell and her crazy upbringing. Also enjoyed the caring Milo Sturgis, a genuine friend to Dr. Delaware. Great book, I will be reading more from Jonathan Kellerman.

Psychologist Alex Delaware takes on a new patient when a policeman friend refers him to a young woman who served on the jury of a serial murderer's trial. Lucy Lowell has been having a recurring dream wherein she is four years old, in the woods, watching three men carry a young woman who appears to be sleeping. When Lucy also starts sleepwalking, she goes to visit Dr. Delaware, who begins investigating the events in the dream.

Lucy's father is M. Bayard Lowell, a celebrated author turned recluse when his well of talent dried up. Once, his books were required reading in high schools, but his last published piece was a critically savaged flop. He found a patron and started an artists and writers' retreat called Sanctum, where the spirit of free love reigned supreme in the 1970s. Now, it is rundown and all but abandoned, and the once Great Man is a shriveled, incontinent cripple. Lucy denies ever having been to Sanctum, but her older half brother Ken remembers a summer when all four of Lowell's children from both of his marriages were there.

Dr. Delaware starts investigating missing young women from the same summer Lucy was at Sanctum and uncovers one missing Karen Best, who had been working as a waitress at a restaurant only a few miles from Sanctum. Delaware realizes he's raising old ghosts from his investigation and a lot more than one body has piled up over the years. People disappear when they get involved in the disappearance of Karen Best. Dr. Delaware uncovers an intricate web of betrayal and deceit that could very well take him down with it.

Though it moved at a methodical, plodding pace, the story was intriguing enough to hold my interest. I wanted to know what happened to Karen Best. In the end, her disappearance wound up having unexpected circumstances that got a bit muddled in the convoluted ending. Another detraction was the smug arrogance of Dr. Delaware, who apparently believes he alone knows how Lucy should deal with the hand life dealt her, and her only way of going on is under his care. He also seems rather offhand with the woman in his own life and their dog, which did not make me warm to him any further. It is, however, possible to ignore these details, and some prefer a slow-paced mystery to savor. I could be persuaded to read another Alex Delaware novel, but I won't strain myself to do so.

Seemed forced to create added pages exploiting previously disclosed, explored channels of information. Still, Milo expanded a bit, but less featured partnering with Alex.

An easy yet captivating read. Even when Kellerman writes a novel that has a fairly predictable story line he has the reader turning pages. He has a very good grasp of the language and his ability to use phrases and metaphors in his descriptions all always keeps the reader both amused and captivated. He always allows me to get lost in the story.
I've read the entire series so far (this is about the 6th book) and it was good but simply too long. The book really culminates about 70 pages before the end and then just drags on from there. I'd like to see the author get a better sense of pacing, but other than that it was good. I'm not sure how well the book would stand alone since I have all the background from reading the prior books. It seems like it would stand alone just fine, but it's nice to know the back story of all the little side details mentioned.
