EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Mar 28, 2006; Writer: Jonathan Kellerman; Genres: Fiction, Mystery and Thriller; Publisher: Ballantine

Weeks after L.A. psychologist Alex Delaware meets an aspiring actress who faked her own kidnapping for PR, she's murdered and her partner-in-hoax is MIA.

Stock Character The hirsute, alcoholic janitor with a criminal past and a penchant for creepy stares.

Body Count Eleven.

Bottom Line Sharply written and well-paced, Kellerman's 20th Delaware outing feels slightly by-the-numbers; besides, the victims are mostly vapid would-be actors.
