A classic Kellerman thriller, taut with page turning tension,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Death (Alex Delaware) (Paperback)
Kellerman is back on top form as Alex Delaware takes on a case which causes him to examine himself and question his judgement as his friendship/ partnership with Milo Sturgis is put at risk. With sassy dialogue and slick plotting Kellerman again shows how California dreaming can lead to nightmares.
Eldon Mate brought death on demand to "travellers" seeking release from suffering. The law could not touch him, but now Dr Death, gruesomely hacked in Ripper style, has been killed by his own killing machine. Alex is brought in to consult in this high profile case but finds the family of one of his patients, Stacey Doss, critically involved. The psychological powder keg of Doss family secrets is set to explode: who will get caught in the blast?
While the net closes around Stacey's father, Alex searches for alternative solutions. Will duty of care strain his relationship with Milo beyond breaking point?
Forced to re-evaluate constantly as revelations shake his understanding of the Doss family, could Alex have misread the situation and be helping a killer?
