For Alex Delaware, this crime is personal: if he couldn’t help his former patient in life, he will in death. FLESH AND BLOOD is a fast-paced and complex thriller from New York Times No. 1 bestseller Jonathan Kellerman, and is perfect for fans of Harlan Coben and David Baldacci. ‘[Kellerman] has shaped the psychological mystery novel into an art form’ Lost Angeles Times Book Review
When Alex Delaware first saw Lauren Teague she was a sullen teenager with the usual problems: bad grades at school, moody, uncommunicative with her parents – which is why they thought she needed to see a psychologist.
Then years later, a shock: at a batchelor party for a fellow doctor, Delaware finds himself uncomfortably watching two strippers going through a degrading display – and one of them is Lauren Teague. And now her mother is pleading for help once again: Lauren has disappeared – and she thinks Delaware can find her. He’s not so sure – but when her disappearance turns into a murder investigation, he knows he owes it to the dead girl to find out what demons drove her to such a horrifying end . . .
