BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Victims. Perennial bestseller and acknowledged master of the psychological thriller, Jonathan Kellerman has created a riveting and memorable Alex Delaware novel about a troubled and elusive young woman whose brutal murder forces the brilliant psychologist-detective to confront his own fallibility. Lauren Teague is a beautiful, defiant, borderline-delinquent teenager when her parents bring her to Alex Delaware's office. But for all Alex's skill and effort, Lauren resists—angrily, provocatively. Reluctantly, the psychologist chalks Lauren up as one of the inevitable failures of a challenging profession. But years later, when Alex encounters Lauren as a stag party's featured entertainment, both doctor and patient are sticken with shame. And the ultimate horror takes place when, soon after, Lauren's brutalized corpse is found dumped in an alley. Alex disregards the advice of his trusted friend, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis, and jeopardizes his relationship with longtime lover, Robin Castagna, in order to pursue Lauren's murderer. As he investigates his young patient's troubled past, Alex enters the shadowy worlds of fringe psychological experimentation and the sex industry, and then into mortal danger when lust and big money collide in Southern California. Jonathan Kellerman's L.A. is evil, seductive, and unforgiving, and Flesh and Blood is mind-opening in its drama of a driven man's personal quest, breathtaking in its ingenious plot, filled with unforgettable characters, and topped off by a terrifying climax. This is suspense fiction at its finest.

SILENT PARTNER “A complex and haunting story of tangled personalities, deeply buried family secrets, and of violence lying thinly under the surface . . . hits the reader right between the eyes.”—Los Angles Times Book Review At a party for a controversial sex therapist, Alex encounters Sharon Ransom, an alluring lover who, more than a decade earlier, abruptly left him. The following day Sharon is dead, an apparent suicide. Driven by guilt and sadness, Alex plunges into the labyrinthine maze of her life—a journey taking him to the pleasure palaces of California’s ultrarich, and deep into the dark alleyways of the mind, where childhood terrors still hold sway. DEVIL’S WALTZ “I double dare you to start reading Devil’s Waltz and put it down.”—Larry King Toddler Cassie Jones is rushed to the hospital with symptoms no doctor can explain. When Alex is called to investigate, instinct tells him that someone—Cassie’s parents or the child’s devoted nurse—could be a monster. Then a physician is brutally killed, and a shadowy death revealed. Alex and Milo have only a few hours to discover the link between these shocking events and baby Carrie’s terrifying condition. BAD LOVE “Bad Love will have you looking over your shoulder before you turn out the lights.”—Detroit Free Press Arriving in an unmarked brown wrapper is an audiocassette recording of a horrifying scream, followed by the chanting of a childlike voice. The tape is an early intimation that Alex is entering a living nightmare. With Milo’s help, Alex uncovers a diabolical pattern of violent murder. And if they do not quickly decipher the twisted logic of a stalker’s mind game, Alex will be the next to die. SELF-DEFENSE “Exciting . . . loaded with tension and packed with titillating insights.”—The New York Times Book Review Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex for help with a recurring nightmare of a child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act. Now Lucy’s dream is disrupting her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The dream’s grip on her emotions suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It could be Lucy’s repressed childhood memory of something chillingly real. Something like murder.
