About this product
- DescriptionWith scores of millions of books in print, translation into two dozen languages, and one of the most popular heroes in contemporary fiction to his name, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman is the unequivocal master of the psychological thriller ( People ). In Obsession, Kellerman delivers a tour de force poignant, dark, and chilling that illuminates a shadowy world where impulse rules. Tanya Bigelow was a solemn little girl when Dr. Alex Delaware successfully treated her obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Now, at nineteen, she still seems older than her years but her problems go beyond hyper-maturity. Patty Bigelow, Tanya s aunt and adoptive mother, has made a deathbed confession of murder and urged the young woman to seek Delaware s help. The doctor recalls Patty as a selfless E.R. nurse struggling to raise a child on her own a woman seemingly incapable of the terrible thing she has admitted. But for Tanya s peace of mind, Delaware agrees to investigate, and he enlists LAPD detective Milo Sturgis in the search for the phantom victim of a crime that may never have occurred. Armed with only the vaguest details, psychologist and cop follow a trail twisting from L.A. s sleaziest low-rent districts to its overblown mansions, retracing Patty and Tanya s madic and increasingly puzzling life to the doorsteps of a sullen heroin addict; a randy real-estate broker; and a brilliant, enigmatic physics student. Suddenly a very real murder tears open a terrifying tunnel into the past, where secrets and bodies are buried. As the tension mounts, Delaware and Sturgis uncover a tangled history of desperation, vengeance, and death a legacy of evil that refuses to die. Dramatic, action-packed, and filled with the psychological detail that only Jonathan Kellerman can provide, Obsession is a whodunit, a whydunit and something unique: a did-it-even-happen? This is Kellerman at his heart-racing best. From the Hardcover edition.
