Therapy by Jonathan Kellerman

Psychologist Alex Delaware and Detective Milo Sturgis join hands once again to solve a double murder. Gavin Quick and an unknown girl are found dead in a car in a lonely lover’s lane. Who is the girl? Why were they murdered? Is the girl the intended victim as she was impaled after being shot and Gavin Quick just an incidental victim? Or is it the otherway round? Delaware and Sturgis try to unravel the mystery. Quick’s background reveal that he became obsessive after a head injury and was undergoing “therapy.” Does Quick’s psychologist know the truth? If she knows will she speak up? Can you trust your Psychologist?

There are too many unnecessary complications that really really add nothing to the story. You can actually skip a few pages you wouldn’t miss much.

There are way too many obnoxious characters the alcoholic mother, philandering father, detestful aunt, and many others. Noboby is what they look. Everybody has a second life.
There seems to be too much therapy. Lots of people undergoing therapy. Well, that’s the key, isn’t it?
