If you like Jonathan Kellerman, you will want to read this one. I could not put it down and thought I had it figured out several times. No way--the ending surprised me. Loved his characters and think it was one of his better stories.

Billy Straight is the first J. Kellerman book I've read, and worth every minute. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The plot races along with no extraneous filler or fluff. Kellerman embeds a few subtle clues as to who the antagonist is - so now when I read more of his books I'll pay closer attention and maybe figure out who the villain is before the end.
