Review quote

'Kellerman skilfully keeps the plot going and our interest aroused. But before we learn the truth there are many more twists and turns...It is a journey well worth taking with Delaware and by the end of the novel Kellerman has succeeded in telling a very clever story without losing the interest of the reader' Australian Jewish News 15 August 2003 * Australian Jewish News * 'This is top-drawer stuff...Kellerman's experience as a psychologist adds layers of verisimilitude to this tautly written thriller' Crime Time 2003 * Crime Time 2003 * 'Booksellers should have little trouble moving this along' Publishers Weekly 14/4/03 * Publishers Weekly * 'Detective fiction's best-loved shrink, handsome, intrepid, immeasurably sensitive, is in top form' Kirkus Reviews 15/4/03 * Kirkus Reviews * 'The strong narrative expertly draws the reader along to the tense climax' Canberra Times 7 June 2003 * Canberra Times * 'Unputdownable' the Age, Australia 7 June 2003 * the Age, Australia * 'This new novel is as assured and as scary as anything Kellerman has done before' Crime Bookseller 11/4/03 * Crime Bookseller * 'This is hard-nosed thriller writing with a soft centre' The Times 7 June 2003 * The Times * 'Detective fiction's best-loved shrink, handsome, intrepid, immeasurably sensitive, is in top form' Kirkus Reviews 15/4/03 * Kirkus Reviews * 'Kellerman avoids the triple twists that have become such a cliche in favour of old-fashioned adrenalin ... Plot and sub-plot coalesce satisfyingly in high-octane entertainment that never loses it's characters' vulnerability. This is hard-nosed thriller writing with a soft centre' The Times 7 June 2003 * The Times *show more
