Flesh and Blood (Alex Delaware, #15) by Jonathan KellermanPsychologist Alex Delaware hasnt been in private practice for a long time, but when the mother of a former patient calls and asks for his help, he cant turn her down. He couldnt help Lauren Teague when she was alive, but something about his failure with the beautiful, sullen teenager who grew up to be a high-priced call girl wont let him walk away after her bullet-ridden body turns up in an L.A. dumpster. When she wasnt turning tricks, she was a straight-A student; despite his detective pal Milos demurral, Alex is convinced theres a connection between Laurens death and another beautiful UCLA psych major who disappeared a year earlier. With his customary skill and compassion, Jonathan Kellerman draws us deep into Laurens complicated life, from a university campus to a Malibu estate owned by a wealthy publisher of soft-core porn (who bears a distinct resemblance to the pajama-clad mogul who made a small white bunny famous).
Kellermans last couple of books have been a bit disappointing, but here the bestselling author is writing up to the high standard he set in his earlier ones. With solid plotting, well-realized characterizations, and a strong narrative drive, Flesh and Blood delivers the real goods on every page. --Jane Adams
