Dr. Sylvia Strange is the psychiatrist chosen to help unlock John Dantes' troubled Machiavellian mind. He alone might hold the key, needed to unlock the identify of a troubled mind seeking to revenge itself on the innocent; a potential bomber set on the destruction of Los Angeles. Dantes' Inferno is a gripping page-turner, mind boggling in its intensity. The suspense reaches a crescendo, only to build even higher in the next instant.

The author knows Los Angeles as few people must. Lovett takes us through the city above ground and then moves just as knowledgeably through its underground - a very frightening place. She brings her characters to life and gives them a substance that includes all the flaws and foibles, with which real people struggle. Her knowledge of the mind's workings - either for good or evil - is impressive in its scope.

The last chapter had me holding my breath. When I thought it couldn't get any better, it did. Fast paced, tightly written, character driven, Dantes' Inferno is well worth the read.
