Read by8 cassettes/ 10 hoursSomeone  has murdered euthanasia champion Dr. Eldon Mate--a self-styled Dr. Death responsible for scores of assisted suicides.  In a burst of bloody irony, the killer chooses to dispatch the doctor in the back of his own suicide van, hooking Mate up to the killing apparatus dubbed the "humanitron"--and adding some butchering touches of his own.  The case is assigned to veteran LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, who turns, once again, to his friend Alex Delaware.  But working this case raises a conflict of interest for Alex so profound that he can't even discuss it with Milo, and the tension that develops between cop and psychologist further complicates an already baffling and complex murder investigation.Dr. Death is a rich brew of unforgettable chracters, labryinthine plotting, page-turning prose, and the unique insights into the darkest corners of the human mind that have earned Jonathan Kellerman international accolades as the master of psychological suspense.

I am a big follower of Jonathan Kellerman's series with Alex Delaware. Have not read them in exact order, but you don't really have to. Dr. Death was one of the best, with all the various character build ups and the story line kept my interest to the end. A real page turner! I would recommend it to anyone who is familiar with the series or a first timer. Great book!
Just okay, not one of the best of the "Delaware-Sturgis" series. A "ripped from the news" of more than a decade ago when Jack Kevorkian was infamous.
I have enjoyed this series
This book was great . The story, plot,everything. He's an excellent author.
I love this author. I'm attempting to read as many of his Alex Delaware novels as I can find. So far I've enjoyed every one of them. I've read about 20 of Kellerman's books and have enjoyed them all immensely.
His books are all excellent. This absolutely met my expectations. Recommend. I'm rereading them in order since I missed a few back when I bought hard backs. Love Alex's descriptions of what he sees and experiences.
I described this book as breezy to a friend who asked about it. It is an easy read, compelling enough to hold your interest and make you want to finish. The characters, of course, are well known to any Kellerman reader. Milo (the gay LAPD detective) is barely present in this book. Alex Delaware is the forensic psychologist and main character.

The plot is centered on a Dr. Kevorkian style MD who assists "travelers" on their journey to death. He is found brutally slain in his euthanesia van hooked up to his own death machine. There are a number of potential suspects and red herrings as well as sub-plots The denouement is interesting and offers up some poetic justice.

Justice appeals to me. I still enjoy it when good prevails over evil. Therefore, I like this book.

If you're looking for entertainment without literary complexity, this book could be just the ticket.
At this point I have read all his Alex Delaware books. Obviously a fan. Also a shrink. His earlier works had more psychological material, if I remember correctly. Still, Nice, easy reads. Some are better than others, but I can't remember that either.
