Format: Paperback
A couple are thrown into turmoil because of the suffering of their little girl. They have already lost one child, and it looks like they may lose Cassie as well. She spends more time in hospital than out. The doctor is thinking the worst, but needs an independent assessment to back up her findings. The only problem is that Cassie's Grandfather is the Chairman of the Board at the hospital. All the evidence points to the fact that someone is deliberately hurting her, and the finger is being pointed at Cassie's mother. Read it .. it's worth the time.

This is a chilling mystery (the twist - the protagonist is a child psychologist) about parents suspected of harming their baby. It is a completely engrossing book -- I started to read it at a world-class resort in Hawaii, and I saw very little of the resort! After finishing Devil's Waltz, I read most of the other books in the series (there are quite a few) and I already have "EYES" looking for his next one!

It is brilliant to have the main character be someone OTHER than a cop or a jaded P.I.!! Having now read most of the books in the series, I am delighted by the development of all the leading characters across the years of the series. This book, I think, is still my favorite, though.

Kellerman is really skillful at maintaining continuity and evolving their personalities at the same time. I strongly suggest reading the whole series. I hope Mr. Kellerman never tires of Alex Delaware (the psychologist).

I am a big fan of Jonathan Kellerman and have read a good number of the Alex Delaware books and while I didn't think one is all that bad I found it a bit of a slow starter. In fact it probably took about 300 of the 500 or so pages to really come to life. If you haven't read one of these books before then this isn't the best to choose as an introduction as it might put you off buying any more which would be a shame.

The most disappointing thing about this book (I've got the 2008 reprint) was the number of typo errors I found, there must have been about ten. I don't know if Headline no longer employ proof readers but whatever the reason this needs sorting out as this shodiness doesn't do their reputation any good at all.

This was the 3rd book I read of the Delaware series. I was very unentertained with the introduction. I think if the introduction would have been shorter it wouldn't have been so easy to put it down in the beginning. When the climax finally arrived it held my interest the rest of the book. I hadn't heard of Munchausen syndrome by proxy before so that helped keep my interest. This book has you playing detective in your own mind while you read only to find out in the end that you better keep your day job. It was written good on the terminology lingo, you didn't yearn for a medical dictionary to be able to pronounce the lingo. It is a good book if you can force yourself to keep reading during the introduction.

Sometimes when you read a number of books by the same author, you know that you will be disappointed. There always seems to be one book written for commercial reasons. But with Jonathan Kellerman that hasn't been the case. The Devil's Waltz is really well written, a strong story line, and sub-plots arising from beneath the surface. It keeps you guessing right up until the end. Well worth reading.

This writer goes into great detail and uses many American words, not commonly used in English, the character is down to earth and the story lines are realistic. If you can keep up with the intricate details, you will probably enjoy this series of books about Alex Delaware.

As I started reading this book by him it came apparent that this was not going to be a good book. Through the whole book I was expecting Dr. Delaware to show up but he never did and it was a disappointment
