Time Bomb: An Alex Delaware Novel, Book 5 By Jonathan Kellerman


15   2

Edgar Award winner Jonathan Kellerman once more explores the corruption of Californias golden coast and produces a novel of complex characterizations and nonstop suspense. By the time psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware reached the school the damage was done: A sniper had opened fire on a crowded playground, but was gunned down before any children were hurt. While the TV news crews feasted on the scene and Alex began his therapy sessions with the traumatized children, he couldnt escape the image of a slight teenager clutching an oversized rifle. What was the identity behind the name and face: a would-be assassin, or just another victim beneath an indifferent California sky?

Intrigued by a request from the snipers father to conduct a "psychological autopsy" of his child, Alex begins to uncover a strange pattern of innocence, neglect, and loss. Then suddenly it is more than a pattern - it is a trail of blood. In the dead snipers past was a dark and vicious plot. And in Alex Delawares future is the stuff of grown-up nightmares: the face of real human evil.
