Psychologist Alex Delaware assists his friend, LAPD Det. Lt. Milo Sturgis, in sussing out the identity of a mutilated Jane Doe-a woman that Alex, by coincidence, had noticed the night before when she appeared to be awaiting a date in a hotel lounge. The investigation follows convoluted pathways through Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and cyberspace to puzzle out the mystery woman's identity. John Rubenstein has narrated numerous Kellerman books and is on familiar ground. His confident, seasoned reading gives the recurring characters distinctive voices and matches the dramatic story with a steady, moderate tempo. A Ballantine hardcover. (Apr.)
