"How can a nonfunctional psychotic locked up in a supposedly secure institution for homicidal madmen predict brutal murders in the outside world? Delaware and his friend and partner Detective Milo Sturgis must penetrate this enigma in order to stop the horrific killings." "A marginal actor is found dead in a car trunk, sawn in half. Months later, a psychologist at a hospital for the criminally insane is discovered murdered and mutilated in a similar way. When reports of an inmate's incoherent ramblings begin to make frightening sense as predictions of yet more slayings, Delaware and Sturgis are drawn into web of family secrets, vengeance, and manipulation - both inside the asylum and on the streets of L.A., where death, drugs, and sex are marketed as commodities. The climactic discovery they make as they race to prevent more killings gives fresh and terrifying meaning to the concept of monstrosity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The first half of the book is readable. The second half is unnecessarily long, boring, there are a lot of meaningless monologues and dialogues, the ending is middling.

As psychological thrillers go, this is the best of the best-by a man who has bestseller next to most of his dozens of psychological thrillers.
