The review of this Book prepared by Tamika Black

Main character Alex Delaware gets involved with a former young patient, who's disappeared and then found murdered in a dumpster.
His search for the culprit unravels family tragedies and secrets.

Not one of Kellerman's best: I think he's developing writer's block or apathy.
