LAPD homicide lieutenant Milo Sturgis sees it all the time: Reinvention's a way of life in a city fueled by fantasy. But try as you might to erase the person you once were, there are those who will never forget the past, and who can still find you. A pool boy enters a secluded Bel Air property and discovers two bodies floating in the bright blue water: Gio Aggiunta, the playboy heir to an Italian shoe empire, and a gorgeous, even wealthier neighbor named Meagin March. A married neighbor. An illicit affair stoking rage is a perfect motive. But a "double" in this neighborhood of gated estates isn't something you see every day. The house is untouched. No forced entry, no forensic evidence. The case has "that feeling," and when that happens, Milo turns to his friend, the brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware. As Milo and Alex investigate both victims, they discover two troubled pasts. And as they dig deeper, Meagin March's very identity begins to blur. Who was this glamorous but conflicted woman? Did her past catch up to her? Or did Gio's family connections create a threat spanning two continents? Chasing down the answers leads Alex and Milo on an exploration of L.A.'s darkest side as they contend with one of the most shocking cases of their careers and learn that that some secrets are best left buried in the past.… (mais)

It was ok but need more characters ( )

Quick read and ok addition to series. Definitely not as outrageous as many of his others.

But lack of a good plot as well as no development in the main characters' lives reduces the quality of this series.

ALEX IS WORKING WITH DETECTIVE TO SOLVE DOUBLE MURDER OF MYSTERY FEMALE AND BOYFRIEND. FIRST READ OF HIS NOVELS. ( )

You can never go wrong reading or listening to a Jonathan Kellerman book! This is book 39 in the Dr. Alex Delaware and his best friend, Lieutenant Milo Sturgis series. Alex has been recovering from a serious injury inflicted while helping Milo with a murder in the last book. He's happy when Milo finally calls him again for help even though it seems a little too safe of an investigation...until it isn't. ( )

The Ghost Orchid is a real flower that grows in Florida. It is difficult to find and fits one of the characters. The book is a good story from beginning to end. Somehow with no clues, the murders are able to be solved. Four stars were given in this review for another great Dr. Alex Delaware thriller. ( )

Best book to read After a long hiatus, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed reading Alex Delaware novels. With a good balance of psychology and traditional police work, this was a well-crafted mystery. Though I was pleased to see that they remained largely unchanged, it's possible that Milo and Alex have grown softer over time. I must return and complete the tasks I have neglected!
