She was found stabbed to death on a quiet, shaded street in one of Los Angeles ' safest neighbourhoods. For three months the police have found no clues to the murder of Hope Devane, psychology professor and controversial author of a pop-psych bestseller, and angry indictment of men. Now homicide detective Milo Sturgis, newly assigned to the case, turns to his friend, psychologist Dr Alex Delaware, looking for insights into Devane's life. To both men the cold stalking of Hope Devane suggests calculation fuelled by hate – an execution. They discover why as they unlock, one by one, the very private compartments of her life: her marriage, her shadowy work for a Beverly Hills clinic, the Conduct Committee she ran with an iron hand at the University, 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.

This book started out a little slow, but glad I stuck with it...it got a lot better about halfway through. ( )

The Clinic. Jonathan Kellerman. 1997. Obviously I missed the Alex Delaware title when it came out, but it was as enjoyable as always and follows the traditional and successful formula of the other books in this series. Milo, Alex’s homicide detective friend has a case he cannot solve and he asks him for help. A professor who has become famous for her book on male-female relations has been stabbed. So Milo and Alex look into her past and present life. Robin is still making her musical instruments and whatever problems she and Alex had in earlier novels have been solved. As always, these books are suspenseful and interesting to read ( )

I think that this is probably one of the best Alex Delaware books in the set. It has a wide variety of characters, and plot changed that keep you guessing the whole way through. The murder of a college psychology professor, with too many suspects to even begin to guess the guilty party. As usual the dynamics between Alex and Milo make for quite an interesting read. They are defenitely a good team. ( )

I have a real soft spot for this series; it was one of the first suspense series I ever started. I’ve been reading books in this series for almost 20 years, and in nowhere near the intended order. And that’s the nice thing about it — I may not know what house Delaware is living in or what the status of his relationship with Robin is when I start the book, but each stands alone so well that it doesn’t matter. In The Clinic, Kellerman gives us yet another solid mystery, with a touch of questionable moralities and more than a little psychology. When you start an Alex Delaware novel, rarely do you know where it’s going to end up. If you’re a suspense fan and you haven’t started this series, what are you waiting for? ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 034546074X, Mass Market Paperback)

Former child psychologist Jonathan Kellerman brings us the 11th installment in the reliable series featuring child psychologist Alex Delaware. Here Delaware teams up again with his old friend Detective Milo Sturgis of the LAPD to investigate the brutal murder of Dr. Hope Devane. Her bestselling book about how men victimize women made her famous; did it also lead to her death? As Sturgis and Delaware begin probing into the details of her life, they find more and more secrets and slowly close in on a killer filled with hate. As usual, Kellerman combines convincing psychological portraits with good dialogue and a plot that coils to a tense finish.
