Synopsis: Dr. Alex Delaware doesn?t see many private patients anymore, but the young woman called Lucy is an exception. So is her dream. Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex by Los Angeles police detective Milo Sturgis. A juror at the agonizing trial of a serial killer, Lucy survived the trauma only to be tormented by a recurring nightmare: a young child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act.

Now Lucy?s dream is starting to disrupt her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The power of the dream, its grip on Lucy?s emotions, suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It may be the repressed childhood memory of something very real. Something like murder.
From the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher: Twenty-five-year-old Lucy Lowell comes to see Dr. Alex Delaware after the trauma of serving as a juror on a serial-murder case. Since the guilty verdict she has been tormented by a recurring nightmare -- child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive burial. The dream is so real, its grip on Lucy's emotions so strong, that Alex wonders if it may be the repressed memory of something very real: a murder. For Alex and his patient, a session of hypnotic regression will be the start of a journey to frightening truth, as Alex finds a link between the dream and Lucy's famous father, once a literary giant, now a recluse. When Lucy insists someone is trying to kill her, Alex must determine whether her fears are self-induced, or whether a flesh-and-blood killer is desperate to eliminate the final witness. With its haunting images and riveting pace, Self -Defense demonstrates conclusively why there are 15 million copies of Jonathan Kellerman's novels in print worldwide.
