I like Johnathan Kellerman’s voice and main characters in the Alex Delaware series. Being a former Police Detective I find the Milo Sturgis character spot on for my kind of sleuth. I’m a bit skeptical about the amount of involvement with Dr. Delaware but the work is fiction.
I’ve enjoyed a couple other novels in this series, but in my opinion this one fell flat about half way through. The back and forth interaction between the protagonists was loaded with a lot of opinions and guesswork and conjecture that seems to go in circles, slowing the pace and confusing the plot.
The story was descent but I found the ending anti-climatic.

Big yawn!
I really tried to finish this book just to see who did it, but three quarters of the way through I didn’t care any more and gave up. I’ve read previous works by Kellerman and love his characters, but for a murder mystery novel, this one made want to fluff my pillow instead of turning the page.
There was way too much fluff…useless descriptions of everyone, hypothesizing between characters, and painfully dull dialog.
If you’re looking for a good read to help you sleep, The Clinic is for you.

It wasn’t until I was introduced to the protagonists that I remembered reading one of Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware novels before. If I remember correctly, I like the last one better. I like the combination of L.A. Detective and Psychologist partner, but I felt the plot stalled about two thirds of the way through the book.
I found myself skimming to get through the painfully slow progression of the case at hand. In fairness, having been a criminal investigator, I understand how that can be in real life. Having said that, I think Kellerman stalled just a wee bit too long, waiting for the investigators to get a break in the combination of cold and fresh cases.
The story was interesting and the characters played well off each other with excellent dialogue. I think I’d give the author another shot to wow me.
