[Reviews] CompulsionThe master of the compelling mystery/thriller produces a book that's unlikely to produce unhealthy addiction among its readers.
[Reviews] ObsessionI couldn't tell you what inspired the title, but I do know the book that accompanies it is pretty good.
It gets the job done, but if you're not already a fan of the series, start elsewhere...
The 19th title in Jonathan Kellerman's series of mystery/thriller novels about child psychologist Alex Delaware is simply called "Rage," which isn't nearly as clever or interesting a label as the ones that have been affixed to a number of previous titles. The book is still quite good, though, despite also not being particularly great.
This is one of the most satisfying installments in the Alex Delaware series to date.
Jonathan Kellerman is currently one of my favorite mystery writers, but you wouldn't necessarily know it by reading my reviews for some of the books I've most recently read in his series of novels about Alex Delaware. I loved the stories he told in the early volumes, but I've seen a mostly sustained downturn in quality that started with "The Web" and proceeded from there. The two most recent volumes in particular were less than stellar.
Jonathan Kellerman and protagonist Alex Delaware are both capable of so much better than this...
"A Cold Heart" is the 17th installment in Jonathan Kellerman's popular series of novels about psychologist and sometimes sleuth Alex Delaware. You might suppose that by this point, Kellerman would have run out of thrilling stories to tell.
Alex might be the hero, but this time around, Milo is the star.
"The Murder Book (Alex Delaware, No. 16)," which is the 16th entry in Jonathan Kellerman's popular series of novels about retired child psychologist Alex Delaware, is another entertaining read despite stumbling a few times. It picks up right where its predecessor, "Flesh and Blood," left off, which is unusual for the series and might prove jarring to new readers. However, it largely stands on its own once you get past that potential issue.
