Not so much a whodunit or a whydunit--more like a what-on-Earth-is-going-on-? A hospital staff psychologist coping with the loss of his girl friend to murder and the consequent depression finds himself a target of interest for a group of five older wealthy retired people who tell him of their interest in the roots of violence. Strange anonymous mailings begin to arrive. Murders similar to that of his wife crop up in the newspaper. The police come calling. Our protagonist gropes through an eerie fog of loneliness and unsatisfied conjecture as he tries to maintain his shrink's intuition and his scientific objectivity through it all. What's up ? That is the question. Many in the community of reviewers were disappointed with this one, but I liked the change of pace from the Alex Delaware series. Call it 2 stars-slash-4 stars and refuse to average to 3 stars...Kellerman tried something more complex this time around than Alex & Milo & Robin & Blanche....Kudos even though he didn't quite succeed.
