One of Argent's patients at Starkweather is Ardis "Monster" Peake, imprisoned for the unbelievably brutal murders of his mother and the family she worked for, including a small child and a baby. There's at least one eerie similarity between the mutilation of their bodies and Argent's: in all the bodies, the eyes were taken or destroyed. But Peake, diagnosed as schizophrenic and psychotic, is a well-behaved vegetable due to a steady diet of Thorazine, and he hasn't left the hospital since his incarceration 15 years before. How is it, then, that Claire Argent's assistant, Heidi Ott, swears she heard Peake say, "Dr. A. Bad eyes in a box" soon after he hears only the bare fact of her death? And why does Alex find Peake so empathetic, in spite of his violent past and chillingly vacant mind? When other mutilated bodies turn up, Alex and Milo begin to suspect that the real monster is very much at large. Like Kellerman's 12 previous Alex Delaware mysteries, Monster builds to a big, teeth-clenching bang and ends with some very satisfying surprises. --Barrie Trinkle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I discovered this author this summer. my goal is to read all his books. I love the way he describes the characters and the dog. rich in ps.
Kellerman's descriptive writing raises the eyebrows and the corners of my mouth. It' strange that he went from writing children's books to writing books children should not read. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Maura B.
I did not find this Delaware story interesting. Too matter-of-fact. Interesting idea, but no motive for the murders left me wanting more. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Susan Bush
I was surprised at the twists and it really had a good background built up. Quite gory though not descriptively so.Published 4 months ago by J Tyler
