Kellerman lost my faith in him massively in this book. He is not a thriller writer of the traditional ilk. He is a keen observer and a great describer. He is at his best when he reveals the details of people and their habitats.

But the things he is good at are bad for the thriller genre. This bulky collection could have been a wonderful showcase of his talents and in a way they are. But Kellerman cannot make his victims count.

He can show violence brilliantly, but cannot reveal the tragedy behind the violence. Whenever he succeeds at this though, it is at the expense of interest, suspense, pacing, and development. ( )

As usual, Jonathan Kellerman writes a potent tale with his lead detective/psychologist sleuth team. Alex Delaware, renowned retired psychologist, is enlisted by his best friend, detective Milo Sturgis, to help recover a potentially hidden murder from the memory of Lucy Lowell. It's nice to see Delaware in personal clinical setting again, delving into intense emotional sessions to uncover a morbid mystery. Suspense is here as always, and some of the characters such as Lucy's father, are unearthly revolting. All of Kellerman's books featuring Alex Delaware have indepth characterization and intelligent dialogue that seems genuine.

One of the better parts of the books, especially if you've been a fan of the series, is that the witness/juror Lucy has a crush on Milo. I loved this awkward situation! Perfect! Alex shows a little more humor than he used to, although he still manages to get into hot water as much as ever. Twists abound and the ending will leave you gasping, impossible to guess in advance. I dropped this one a half star since it wasn't as captivating as some of his other novels, but still brilliant. If you haven't read Kellerman yet, what are you waiting for? ( )

Lucy 20 yard. dream - captures killer

Dr. Alex Delaware doesn't see many private patients anymore, but the young woman called Lucy is an exception. So is her dream. Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex by Los Angeles police detective Milo Sturgis. A juror at the agonizing trial of a serial killer, Lucy survived the trauma only to be tormented by a recurring nightmare: a young child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act.

If there was such a thing as a forensic psychologist procedural, this would be it. Lots of focus on investigative procedure, psychologist talking things through with his detective friend. Rather dry. The most impressive thing about the book is the way the author manages to pull together a conspiracy involving ten distinct characters in a way that makes sense in the end. ( )

Dr Alex Delaware doesn't see many private patients any more, but for a young woman called Lucy Lowell he's prepared to make an exception. Referred to him by the police detective Milo Sturgis, Lucy had been a juror at the harrowing trial of a serial killer, and having survived that trauma is now being subjected to further emotional stress: a recurrent nightmare of a young child in a forest at night, watching something as furtive as it is disturbing. Now Lucy's dream is starting to disrupt her waking life, and Alex believes the power of the dream and its grip on her emotions may be a repressed childhood memory of something very real.
