Then, the boy is whisked out of the hospital and the family can't be found anywhere. Alex asks his friend Milo for help and we are off on another mystery with Dr. Delaware.
There are a lot of characters introduced and it appears like the theme of this book is that not a single one of them is a good person! We have the good doctor who is super manic (saw that coming!), the social worker who drinks too much and is obsessed with running, a resident who is obviously high on drugs, glorified prostitutes, an abusive ex-husband, a weird cult (is there a normal one??), and perverted old men.
Also, Alex apparently thinks he can just break into places and do what he pleases even though he is just a psychologist. He reminds me of Alex Cross (weird they are both Alex's) that appear they are above the law and are awesome and can do what they want.
I am obviously being super critical, but these are just things that bug me.
I read it for a quick thrill and it delivered.
