Alex Delaware - An Alex Delaware Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

“With his latest, [Jonathan Kellerman] not only brings his ‘A’ game but also ratchets it up a notch or three. . . . Victims will keep you up at night.”—Bookreporter
 
Acid-tongued Vita Berlin hadn’t a friend in the world, but whom did she cross so badly as to end up meticulously arranged in such a gruesome murder scene? One look prompts LAPD detective Milo Sturgis to summon his expert in homicidal maniacs, Alex Delaware. But even Alex is stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion—with no apparent connection among the victims. And the only clue left behind—a blank page bearing a question mark—seems to be both a menacing taunt and a chilling cry for help from a tortured, savage soul. To end the bloody spree and prevent citywide panic, Alex navigates the secretive world of mental health treatment, from the sleek office of a Beverly Hills therapist to a shuttered mental institution where he once learned his craft. As each jagged piece of the puzzle fits into place, a portrait emerges of a sinister mind at its most unimaginable—and an evil soul at its most unspeakable.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Guilt.
 
“Expertly crafted, judiciously paced and echoing with larger social concerns.”—The Star-Ledger
 
“The combination of Alex Delaware [and] Detective Milo Sturgis . . . makes for the most original whodunit duo since Watson and Holmes.”—Forbes

Includes an excerpt of Jonathan Kellerman’s Guilt.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 05, 2011 – In Edgar-winner Kellerman s less than compelling 27th Alex Delaware novel (after 2011 s Mystery), the child psychologist/police consultant and his LAPD homicide detective pal, Lt. Milo Sturgis, look into the possibly ritualistic murder of 56-year-old Vita Berlin, whose mutilated body was found lying on some towels in her apartment. An odd note left in a pizza box is about the only clue. When another body turns up similarly butchered and more follow, it s enough to put even the food-loving Milo off his feed. At Milo s request, Alex talks to Berlin s psychologist in the hope of getting some insight into the difficult, self-righteous woman. Trying to figure out the tortuous link between killer and victims takes Alex back to his days as a young psychology intern and his supervisor, a former research assistant to Anna Freud during the London years. Too many plot contrivances make this one of Kellerman s weaker efforts, but the usual effective interplay between Alex and Milo should satisfy series fans.

Will not download

Would love to give a review but the book will not download. It just says Paused. Any suggestions?

Disappointing

I'm a long-time fan of the Alex Delaware series. The last several--including this one--have been disappointing. The dialog is oftentimes inane and the plots are predictable. I kept hoping Kellerman would quit phoning it in, but, alas, Victims is another mediocre effort. I'm taking this author off of my must-read list.

Great Read!!!!

Jonathan Kellerman has once again created a great mystery. I have read all of his fiction books and look forward to a new one every year. Just finished this one and can't wait to see what he comes up with next year.
