Publisher's Summary

The new masterfully plotted, standalone pyschological thriller from number-one best seller Jonathan Kellerman, featuring tough, brilliant young pyschologist Grace Blades, a former student of Alex Delaware.

A brilliant and dedicated psychologist, Grace Blades has a gift for treating troubled souls and tormented psyches - because she bears her own invisible scars. Only five years old when she watched her parents die in a bloody murder-suicide, Grace took refuge in her fierce intellect and found comfort in the loving couple who adopted her.

But her now-accomplished life has a secret side, ruled by an insatiable desire; by night she pursues the addictive thrills of sexual trysts with strangers. And when her two worlds unexpectedly converge, Grace's past returns with a vengeance, threatening to destroy everything she's fought for - including her life.

Shaken by the murder of her newest patient and fearful that an investigation will expose her double life, Grace sets out to probe the crime herself. But when she stumbles on the dead man's true identity, a horrifying chapter from her childhood is violently reawakened, forcing Grace to confront a decades-old act of evil crying out to be avenged.

Suddenly stalked by dangerous men, Grace must turn to the talent for survival she's depended on all her life in order to face down the darkest personal demon she's ever battled: her own.

    "Interesting Storylines"

    Really enjoyed this audiobook. Great narration and flow of story. The story follows two paths, the past where Grace was an orphaned child, heading from one foster care to another and the present where her professional life as a successful psychologist and personal life get mixed.

    "This is a must read."

    I found the pace of the book exilerating and impssible tp put down. The primary character evolved wonderfully and her cold logic facinating.

    "Disappointing"

    I'm a Jonathan Kellerman fan. I bought this book without even reading the summary. I was disappointed. Unlike his other work, this story was putdownable - particularly early on. There one section fairly early in the story, where you get all these details of how the main character is treating her psychology patients. These details turn out to be irrelevant to the plot and are just completely boring. I nearly gave up then. But I persevered. It got a little more interesting - but it was difficult to finish. I kept getting bored and tuning out and having to reread sections. And once done - despite its length, you don't feel it is finished. Very unsatisfying and disappointing.

    "At last!!"

    From the first Jonathon Kellerman book I was enthralled by his unique writing and crafting of exciting spellbinding stories. I even read every book with "Kellerman "on it- all were a disappointment until this one!
    At last he is back to his very best!
    A brilliant story line, great characters, not stereotyped at all.
    Than,s for a wonderful read. I actually read it three times, such was the enjoyment with the characters as well as the story!

    "Surprised"

    I really enjoyed it.
    Well read. Good pace.
    I don't like reviews that tell me the whole story, so just to say, it was good, not superb but worth a listen. Gentle suspense. Intriguing and therefore it captured my interest.

    "J Kellerman not up to form with this one"

    Sorry to disagree with the majority of reviews but I had several gripes about this book.

    Characterisation : Wish I had a penny for each glowing description of Grace - clever, beautiful, fit, clever, resourceful, stylish, clever ad nauseam. Most of the other characters were presented only in how they reacted to Grace's copious attributes.

    Plot : To avoid spoilers I'll just say that my disbelief can be suspended only so far.

    Pace : Erratic. It started fine, but slowed down and down only to break into a breakneck bolt for the finale.

    Reader : I personally find the breathy, super-feminine qualities of this reader's voice irritating. Others may not.

    "Overall OK"

    I found it difficult to accept that Grace would act as she did in many ways.

    The story was ok, certainly worth a listen, but stretching one's imagination and belief

    "Enjoyable"

    The story is enjoyable, the plot is quite convoluted in places with a great deal of scene setting. My one real criticism is the end is very abrupt. The book is billed as a stand alone, but I would certainly be happy to read a follow on

    Story
    "Too slow, too unbelievable"

    This book started out grabbing my interest. W without giving any plot away, after the murder it really slowed up too much. I almost gave up on it, but it held just enough interest for me to continue. Grace doesn't really have many plus points to her character, and it was stated just too often how brilliant she is. Barely recognisable as the Delaware author

    "Superlative narration"

    Well written and I respected Grace, the lonely, damaged protagonist. The narrator was excellent, hooking me in from the first sentence. I loved her versatility with voices, her pace and consistency. She was helped by the excellence of Kellerman - he is such a clever writer. I did not give the story 5 * because, at points, it was not a perfect construction. I mean characters 'disappeared'. However, I really enjoyed listening to this. Felt slightly desolated when it finished.

    "Wow"

    I was unsure about this book when I started it but should not have worried as I was hooked 5 minutes later. Much as I LOVE Alex D this new story is definitely one of the best books by this author and is the most gripping novel I have listened too this year - bravo!
