Guilt takes Delaware and Sturgis right into the secret lives of Hollywood royalty. Kellerman’s long-running and consistently excellent Alex Delaware books explore the gritty side of LA lurking beneath the surface glamour. Top-notch as always!
When an expectant mother accidentally exhumes a box filled with the remains of a baby in the backyard of her new home, LAPD Lt. Milo Sturgis and psychologist Alex Delaware track down leads in a case that could date back to the ‘50s. They are also presented with a new case: A young woman is murdered and left in a park. Adriana Betts, the murdered woman, was a nanny. Things get more complicated when they learn whom Adriana worked for. (BALLANTINE, Mar., 380 pp., $28.00)
