It s still an okay read or most murder mysteries It s
disappointing or an author his calibre and experience I expect ussy detail mysteries It s just disappointing or an author of his calibre and experience I expect A treatise on the law of marital rights in Texas fussy detail Kellerman but the descriptions of people and places went on ad nauseum It was over the top mind numbingly boring Who cares about a minor character s yellow toenails Especially after a microscopicocus on every other part of his anatomy when we ll never see him again Every single detail of every single character we encountered in this book was itemized massaged drawn out and described in minute detail I listened to this book on CD and ound my mind wandering many times Descriptions started to eel like nothing than Lots of Hearts filler Where was the plot It was wedged inserted slippediled paper thin between THE DESCRIPTION As if that wasn t enough the snarky orced humor elt hackneyed and weirdly homongenous as if each character with the exception of the superior and oh so restrained Dr Delaware were all morphing into one another and at the same time vying Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession with Weight Loss for attention and one upmanship I thought Jonathan Kellerman was too consumate a professional to stoop to phoning it in but apparently I was wrong I won t give up on him just yet I ve always enjoyed Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis but if the next one is aslimsy and arrogant I will not hesitate to relegate him to the ranks of the Don't Hex with Texas formeravourites along with James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell I am a bit of a novice with Alex Delaware so I am not sure if he and his girlfriend Robin have aged chronologically as the series has moved along Mystery is the twenty sixth book and would make them in

ravaged chest Now I am something of a neophyte with mysteries but this one does seem to be due an extra star or taking us into Few know the city of Los Angeles the way #1 bestselling author and acclaimed suspense master Jonathan Kellerman does His thrilling novels of psychological drama and criminal detection make the capital of dreams a living breathing character in all its glamour and infamy That storied history of ame seduction scandal and murder looms large in Mystery as Alex Delaware inds himself drawn into a twisting shadowy whodunit that’s pure LA noir and vintage Kellerman The closing of their avorite romantic rendezvous the Fauborg Hotel in Beverly Hills is a sad occasion. He thick of the battle You might be a smart aleck and note as some reviewers have that our child psychologist and homicide cop seem to have little or no rationale to be actually working on this case together But over two decades of sleuthing together does seem to have developed ties that bind and books that sell Like the book jacket says 1 NY Times Bestselling Author and whom are we to complain The book has a Hollywood double ending but Alex evidently has never managed to make it into a movie series or some reason Mystery would reuire some editing to avoid some of the soft porn aspects but Kellerman must be making *enough rom the books that he is not pouting about missing the movies *from the books that he is not pouting about missing the movies with the proliferation of cable it seems like only a matter of time until there will be a made or TV series of Dr Delaware The wrap up of this story made my head spin and stitching in the child psychologist aspect was orced but this book was mostly enjoyable to read It Road Map to Holland: How I Found My Way Through My Son's First Two Years with Down Syndrome falls just short of ratingour stars but is better than many three star efforts due to the cleverness of the dialogue Alex and Milo are a ine pair with a wink to a stocky and svelte duo interplay Was a mediocre attempt compared with many other Alex Delaware novelsAlex and Robin watch a beautiful and gracious lady with British accent being stood up at a restaurant They also encounter a body guard thug with a gun outside waiting The very next day Sergeant Milo Sturgis shows them pics of the very same girl dead and sprawled out with guns shot wounds They set out to ID her and seek out her killer sAnd they encounter many strange persons and hidden secretsJust Disappointing For An Author
