Investigating the case of a lovers' lane murder of a pair of college students, Homicide Lieutenant Milo Sturgis enlists the help of Alex Delaware. As the two peel back layer upon layer of deception, they encounter shocking truths that extend way beyond the slaughter of two young lovers. Something other than therapy has been taking place within the plush, soundproof chambers of the young man's therapist . . .

Book #68 was Therapy, the 18th book in Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware series.

I actually have earlier books in the series to read, but it turns out that they are all paperback and already packed away. This book confirms to myself that I prefer the later books in this series. The plot line in this one was one of the more convoluted ones, but it still has that maturity that is missing from the earlier books. I enjoyed it, but it took me longer to read than normal. Not sure if that was because of the book or other circumstances…
