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.

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. ( )

Entertaining and a little gruesome. Underlying plot a little unlikely, and not a lot of real psychological insight. Dragged at the end. I enjoyed the woman who rescued dogs, with Mexican and New England background. And I enjoyed the kid who came to the defense of his sterilized--"Spade!"--, nympho girlfriend. ( )

In my eyes, the story wasn't incredibly gripping.
What I can say is that I love the way Kellerman writes, he paints such lovely portraits of characters and locations... This talent makes even a mediocre story feel so much better.
No, not his best work. But hey, the guy churns these things out quite quickly, it has to be hard to be fantastic for EVERY story. ( )

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.
