Shelved: Therapy by Jonathan Kellerman

What do you get  when you combine self righteous psychologists and ex-cons? Medi-Cal fraud and body count. To uncover the fraud, Detective Milo Sturgis and Dr. Alex Delaware had to make sense of the family dynamics of the Quicks and untangle Dr. Mary Lou Koppel's relationships with the men in her life.

What do I think?
This is probably one of his boring books. It took me a week to finish this one, when I would have normally finished an Alex Delaware novel in less than two days. It's like watching a talkies film -- too many talk and not many action. But it's a great testament to the bond between Sturgis and Delaware.

It has an interesting twist, though. Former snipers make good mercenaries and lovers, but poor husbands. Speaking of husbands, Delaware's former live-in partner makes a cameo appearance which unnerves his current lady love, Allyson.

If you're interested in committing Medi-Cal fraud or just running a scam with ex-cons, here's a book for you.

"Flexibility is the hallmark of maturity."
-Detective Milo Sturgis
