Book 4 of the Alex Delaware series. The psychologist is at it again solving issues and sleeping with more women than James Bond. Given the time period the writing is understandable, however the female characters do remain cardboard cut outs / damsels in distress. I was hoping for a total different direction on the ending, however the closure is satisfying. Reminder that these books though not too graphic deal with a lot of death and sex. There are numerous scenes I felt would not have hurt the story to have left out. All of that said, I did enjoy the novel and will continue to read through the series.
