“A complex and haunting story of tangled personalities, deeply buried family secrets, and of violence lying thinly under the surface . . . hits the reader right between the eyes.”—Los Angles Times Book Review
At a party for a controversial sex therapist, Alex encounters Sharon Ransom, an alluring lover who, more than a decade earlier, abruptly left him. The following day Sharon is dead, an apparent suicide. Driven by guilt and sadness, Alex plunges into the labyrinthine maze of her life—a journey taking him to the pleasure palaces of California’s ultrarich, and deep into the dark alleyways of the mind, where childhood terrors still hold sway.
“I double dare you to start reading Devil’s Waltz and put it down.”—Larry King
Toddler Cassie Jones is rushed to the hospital with symptoms no doctor can explain. When Alex is called to investigate, instinct tells him that someone—Cassie’s parents or the child’s devoted nurse—could be a monster. Then a physician is brutally killed, and a shadowy death revealed. Alex and Milo have only a few hours to discover the link between these shocking events and baby Carrie’s terrifying condition.
“Bad Love will have you looking over your shoulder before you turn out the lights.”—Detroit Free Press
Arriving in an unmarked brown wrapper is an audiocassette recording of a horrifying scream, followed by the chanting of a childlike voice. The tape is an early intimation that Alex is entering a living nightmare. With Milo’s help, Alex uncovers a diabolical pattern of violent murder. And if they do not quickly decipher the twisted logic of a stalker’s mind game, Alex will be the next to die.
“Exciting . . . loaded with tension and packed with titillating insights.”—The New York Times Book Review
Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex for help with a recurring nightmare of a child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act. Now Lucy’s dream is disrupting her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The dream’s grip on her emotions suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It could be Lucy’s repressed childhood memory of something chillingly real. Something like murder.
