Monster

Front Cover
Ballantine Books, 2000 - Fiction - 393 pages
A second-rate actor is found mutilated in a car trunk. Then a psychologist at a Los Angeles hospital for the criminally insane is murdered in a similar grisly fashion. Suddenly the incoherent ramblings of an inmate at the presumably secure institution begin to make chilling sense-- they are, in fact, horrifying predictions. Yet how can a barely functional psychotic locked behind asylum walls possibly know such vivid details of crimes committed in the outside world? Drawn into a labyrinth of secrets, revenge, sex, and manipulation, Dr. Alex Delaware and Detective Milo Sturgis set out to unlock this enigma and put an end to the brutal killings-- before the madman predicts their own demise. . . .

About the author (2000)

Jonathan Kellerman is one of the world's most popular authors.

Kellerman is also the author of numerous essays, short stories, and scientific articles, two children's books, and three volumes of psychology, including Savage Spawn: Reflections on Violent Children. He has won the Goldwyn, Edgar, and Anthony Awards, and has been nominated for a Shamus Award. He and his wife, the novelist Faye Kellerman, have four children.
