Someone has murdered euthanasia champion Dr. Eldon Mate--a self-styled Dr. Death responsible for scores of assisted suicides. In a burst of bloody irony, the killer chooses to dispatch the doctor in the back of his own suicide van, hooking Mate up to the killing apparatus dubbed the "humanitron"--and adding some butchering touches of his own. The case is assigned to veteran LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, who turns, once again, to his friend Alex Delaware. But working this case raises a conflict of interest for Alex so profound that he can't even discuss it with Milo, and the tension that develops between cop and psychologist further complicates an already baffling and complex murder investigation.
Dr. Death is a rich brew of unforgettable chracters, labryinthine plotting, page-turning prose, and the unique insights into the darkest corners of the human mind that have earned Jonathan Kellerman international accolades as the master of psychological suspense.
An electrifying suspenseful story about the aftermath of the gruesome, tables-tuned murder of Eldon Mate by way of his own euthanasia machine. Milo Sturgis is on the case, and Alex Delaware soon joins him. As the investigation develops, Delaware quickly realizes he is facing some the most daunting challenges of his career. 5 CDs.
