Building to a white-knuckle climax in which Alex sets a trap for a killer, The Clinic is brilliantly plotted suspense as wrenchingly disturbing as today's headlines.

About the Author

Jonathan Kellerman was a child psychologist before becoming a full-time novelist. He is married to the writer Faye Kellerman and they live in Los Angeles with their four children.


Kellerman is at his page-turning best in his latest Alex Delaware adventure (after The Web), an investigation into the savage stabbing murder of Hope Devane, a psychology professor and celebrity author. The LAPD, unable to solve the case after three months, reassigns it to Lieutenant Milo Sturgis. Milo calls on his friend Alex, a compassionate, astute psychologist, for insight into the victim, who had a seemingly routine academic career and marriage until writing a pop-psych relationship book. Delving beneath the veneer of Hope's life, Alex uncovers possible enemies: a man with whom she clashed on a TV talk show; students brought before her committee on sexual harassment; patients at a beleaguered women's health clinic where she volunteered. Further questions are raised about the victim's relationships with her doctoral supervisee Casey Locking; about the fertility specialist, from whom she received hefty consultation fees; about her sex life; about a shadowy link to an organized crime figure and the murder of a Las Vegas call girl. Each new avenue of investigation leads Alex and Milo to a dead end until they reach back into Hope Devane's childhood, which reveals links to the present that provide the shocking answer to the puzzle. Kellerman may not be a great stylist, but his serpentine plot and cast of mysterious characters grip the reader to the final page. Major ad/promo. (Jan.)

Kellerman's popular series hero, psychologist/sleuth Alex Delaware (e.g., The Web, LJ 11/1/95), delves into a murder involving a controversial female author.

One of Kellerman's best, with answers to all his questions concealed in the tragic and deeply- buried past. LITERARY REVIEW his utter professionalism makes it compulsively readable. BIRMINGHAM POST well up to the author's high standard. BOOKS As with many of Kellerman's books, THE CLINIC is a slow burn that builds up speed as it sucks the reader in irresistably, forcing us to turn those pages to a gruesome and tragic ending and raises the question of who the real victims are.
