L.A. police lieutenant Milo Sturgis investigates a double homicide at the site of an unfinished, obscenely large mansion in bestseller Kellerman's nerve-tingling 24th Alex Delaware novel (after Bones). Construction halted on the house two years earlier, and ownership can be traced only to a defunct holding company in Washington, D.C. The male victim is easily identified—Desmond Backer, who worked for an odd little architectural firm—but the female victim's identity isn't immediately apparent. Alex serves as a sounding board while Milo pursues assorted rumors and false leads: the site owners are Arabs, Asians, Muslims; the killings were vengeance; the victims were eco-terrorists; the deaths are linked to the disappearance of a Swedish or Swiss woman years before. Without magic, just steady, inspired police work, including horse-trading with the FBI and skillful interrogations, Milo uncovers the unsavory truth. (Oct.)

I love how logical and very analytical his style of writing, keeps you guessing till the very end. The interaction between the two main characters are very entertaining and witty. Read morePublished 11 hours ago by Amy Harmon
Was excited to find an older book I'd missed in the series. Although it's not his great Delaware novel I enjoyed it. Read morePublished 18 days ago by J. A.
This is the first book I have read by Kellerman. It will be the last. I have read many mysteries and this is by far a total loser.Published 29 days ago by Mysty Blue
A very nicely written book. Not quite as good as his recent ones , but a good read.Published 2 months ago by pdmo
very fine book- too complex however for light fiction reading - too many characters, places and events to keep track of without more concentration than I like to give in... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Richard H. Cox
