"The #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of the psychological thriller makes all the right moves in this new novel of spellbinding suspense. Even with all his years of experience, LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis knows there are crimes his skill and savvy cannot solve alone. That's when he calls on brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware to read between the lines, where the darkest motives lurk. And if ever the good doctor's insight is needed, it's at the scene of a murder as baffling as it is brutal. There's no spilled blood, no evidence of a struggle, and, thanks to the victim's missing face and hands, no immediate means of identification. And no telling why the disfigured corpse of a stranger has appeared in an upscale L.A. family's home. Chet Corvin, his wife, and their two teenage children are certain the John Doe is unknown to them. And yet their cooperation seems oddly guarded. But even the Corvins' thin response is more than Milo and Alex can elicit from their creepy next-door neighbor--a notorious cartoonist with a warped sense of humor and a seriously antisocial attitude. As the investigation ensues, it becomes clear that this well-to-do suburban enclave has its share of curious eyes, suspicious minds, and loose lips. And as Milo tightens the screws on potential persons of interest--and Alex tries to breach the barriers that guard their deepest secrets--a strangling web of corrupted love, cold-blooded greed, and shattered trust is exposed. Though the grass may be greener on these privileged streets, there's enough dirt below the surface to bury a multitude of sins. Including the deadliest."--

Been a fan for years, but I gave up on this one halfway through--the characters are unsympathetic and therefore too hard to invest in caring for their predicament.

Another awesome read by Jonathan Kellerman. NIGHT MOVES continues his long series with Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis cooperating as psychologist and cop respectively to solve crimes. This one has a bunch of seemingly unrelated things going on that eventually come together as part of the same puzzle. Milo does lots of interesting cop work on a weird crime and with a psychologist partner, we get to see insights into character added to Milo's factual work. The interplay between the two is it's usual mix of fun and seriousness, underlying humor and sarcasm, and a great example of honest give and take between two people looking at the same things through different lenses to accomplish a common goal. Would that the world today could interact that way more often these days. Great read.

One and a half stars from me. I was expecting a lot from this book, but to me it was a huge disappointment. A Detective along with a psychologist usually makes for an exciting read, but not in this book. The characters were poorly developed and it made it difficult to relate to them. So many pages are wasted on mundane and irrelevant details, which made it seem like the author had to fill pages to complete the book.. I read 68 pages before finally giving up. Don't waste your time on this book!
