Grace Blades is a master psychologist, respected by her peers and adored by her patients. She is hardworking and highly competent, a model of self-control. But in private, Grace indulges a secret thrill-seeking darkness, pursuing danger as an escape from the regimented life she's established. Closing her eyes as she flies down the Los Angeles freeway or targeting a stranger in a hotel bar for an anonymous moment of passion, Grace craves the rush. Order by day, danger by night. But her two worlds collide when a new patient turns out to be her random conquest from the night before. He pleads for her to take him on anyway. She refuses. The next day, his body is found by police with only her business card to identify him. Suddenly, Grace is plunged into a web of danger and deceit that will draw her back into the dark past she fought so hard to leave behind.

I made it to the end of disk 2. Boring!!!!!!! Long winded, reader not very exciting. Story, plot, boring, dragged out. And so far as I've gotten, I think borrowed from a lisa gardner book I just finished. I'm going to try reading the e-book, maybe without the boring reader it'll be better but I doubt it.

Slow to get going and even then, writing is very uneven.
With this one and "Golem" I'm beginning to wonder what the heck happened to Kellerman's
talent.

Having recently discovered Jonathan Kellerman, I looked forward to reading this novel. However, as I've found with another mystery writer, A.D. Garrett (Margaret Murphy), et al (Believe No One, 2014), the gore and over-the-top depraved depictions make their novels impossible for me to enjoy reading. Both (or all three, because Believe No One was co-written with Professor Dave Barkley)authors will go on my "do not read" list.

Too long and boring. Protagonist even more unlikeable than that of "Girl on the Train". I was most disappointed and only hope that Kellerman returns to Delaware series ASAP.

Loved this book. After reading Golem of Hollywood, which he co-wrote with his son, I was concerned that maybe Kellerman was going in a new direction and one that I did not like. However, this was a great introduction to what I hope is a new recurring character. I particularly like characters that are flawed and very human and the main character certainly filled that criteria.

I haven't been all that impressed with Kellerman's novels for the past few years, but he's really redeemed himself with this one. Very hard to put down this page-turner, I even cancelled a date so that I could finish it.
