When the phone rings in the middle of the night, child psychologist Alex Delaware does not hesitate. Driving through the dream-lit San Fernando Valley, Alex rushes to Jamey Cadmus, the patient he had failed five years before—and who now calls with a bizarre cry for help. But by the time Alex reaches Canyon Oaks Psychiatric Hospital, Jamey is gone, surfacing a day later in the hands of the police, who believe Jamey is the infamous Lavender Slasher, a psychotic serial killer. Wooed by a high-powered attorney to build a defense, Alex will get a chance to do what he couldn’t five years ago. And when he peers into a family’s troubled history and Jamey’s brilliant, tormented mind, the psychologist puts himself at the heart of a high-profile case. Because Alex knows that in a realm of money, loss, and madness, something terrible pushed Jamie over the edge—or else someone is getting away with murder.… (más)

I am maybe a quarter of the way through now. One thing that stands out is the amount of homophobia and negative comments about gay people. Calling them "deviant." It definitely dates the book.

Ok, I have finished the book. Just like [b:Blood Test|172912|Blood Test (Alex Delaware, #2)|Jonathan Kellerman|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1341254576s/172912.jpg|2423928], this book becomes overly complicated. The plot seems to have been hatched by a criminal mastermind. It all comes together in the end but for awhile the plot about the prostitute murders seems to get lost as it becomes all about Jamey and his psychiatric struggles. There is a lot of psychological discussion which I felt was interesting and well written. ( )

The plot took a turn that I did not expect. I like when a book makes me think and this one did. ( )

Delaware is involved in another case around a former patient. I'm afraid I like Milo more than Alex. ( )
  Kaethe | Oct 16, 2016 |
Continuing with the need to re-read one of my favorites, Jonathan Kellerman, Over The Edge is an earlier novel that reminds me again why I'm so hooked on Dr. Delaware and his sarcastic friend Milo. This time the mystery isn't easy to figure out, and the psychological injections are fascinating. Jamie is a former patient with a history between the good old doctor that's unusual for Alex, with life working out the kinks and allowing him to once and for all make up for the past.

We still have Robin as the cuddly companion that's starting to fret too much. She's there to be pretty and do her thing, I suppose. Milo is as trashy-classy as always, paired up with two detectives who make interesting - if not appalling - reading. I would have liked more Milo than we got, and his reaction over his assignments seemed a bit too dramatic, BUT he was here and so it's all good. The two best friends didn't pair up as an official team on the case till toward the end, and even then the communications would kept relatively brief compared to later works, but it was still good times to be had.

As for the 'villain' of this story, as is typical Kellerman many are involved. The end result is a surprising one, although not the 'drop the jaw to the floor' type. It would be a bit better if maybe Kellerman had introduced more suspects into the pot, but this worked out well too. As always, excellent characterization and smooth dialogue that propels the story forward into psychologically-turmoiled heaven.

Mysteries and suspense novels rate up there on my harder-to-review list, especially with Kellerman's stuff. You have great writing, a good story I can't share details on, and addictive characters - that's all you need to know to pick this one up. So why four stars rather than five? Compared to other Kellermans, this doesn't blow me away as some of them did. Still, it will curb those lonely nights away.
