2007 NY: Random House First edition, first printing, mint, new/unread in a flawless dustjacket, signed by the author.

With scores of millions of books in print, translation into two dozen languages, and one of the most popular heroes in contemporary fiction to his name, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman is the unequivocal "master of the psychological thriller" (People). In his newest novel Kellerman delivers a tour de force -- poignant, dark, and chilling -- that illuminates a shadowy world where impulse rules.

Tanya Bigelow was a solemn little girl when Dr. Alex Delaware successfully treated her obsessive- compulsive symptoms. Now, at nineteen, she still seems older than her years -- but her problems go beyond hyper-maturity. Patty Bigelow, Tanya's aunt and adoptive mother, has made a deathbed confession of murder and urged the young woman to seek Delaware's help. The doctor recalls Patty as a selfless E.R. nurse struggling to raise a child on her own -- a woman seemingly incapable of the "terrible thing" she has admitted. But for Tanya's peace of mind, Delaware agrees to investigate, and he enlists LAPD detective Milo Sturgis in the search for the phantom victim of a crime that may never have occurred. See all titles by Jonathan Kellerman.

Armed with only the vaguest details, psychologist and cop follow a trail twisting from L.A.'s sleaziest low-rent districts to its overblown mansions, retracing Patty and Tanya's nomadic and increasingly puzzling life to the doorsteps of a sullen heroin addict a randy real-estate broker and a brilliant, enigmatic physics student. Suddenly a very real murder tears open a terrifying tunnel into the past, where secrets -- and bodies -- are buried. As the tension mounts, Delaware and Sturgis uncover a tangled history of desperation, vengeance, and death-a legacy of evil that refuses to die.

Dramatic, action-packed, and filled with the psychological detail that only Jonathan Kellerman can provide, Obsession is a whodunit, a whydunit-and something unique: a did-it-even-happen? This is Kellerman at his heart-racing best.

5 of 5 Obsession / Mystery September 19, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
This is Jonathan Kellerman's 21st book in the Alex Delaware series.  This book can be read out-of-series. I know, because it was my first introduction to Dr. Alex Delaware, a psychologist  that works with the LAPD when called upon.
Dr. Delaware and LAPD detective Milo Sturgis are the male protagonists of this series.
In this case, a former client, 19 year-old Tanya Bigelow calls upon Alex to help her investigate her Aunt's deathbed confession of murder. Tanya was an OCD patient of Dr. Delaware as a young girl, and now is left without any family with the death of her Aunt.
The deeper Sturgis and Delaware investigate, the more the tension mounts. This novel is well-plotted and will be enjoyed by those that like a psychological look at the twisted mind of a serial killer.
I look forward to reading more novels in this series.
