This was my first Jonathan Kellerman book, and I am very pleased with the results of it. Kellerman is a strong writer, who builds up an enticing plot, and interesting characters from the get-go, and makes you want to find out who the culprit of the novel is. Alex Delaware is an enjoyable character, if not a bit gloomy sometimes, who takes you into the minds of many people, both young and old. Fans of Stephen White will enjoy Kellerman's way of weaving a story together, that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. A must-have.
But nevertheless, the story is suspenseful and by no means boring. But this is the only credit I can give it. Kellerman has done a lot better in his other books - at least those I know. He may be forgiven this one.
This had me going from the first page to the last. Foreshadowing even kept you guessing -- you knew what was going to happen, or did you? Just when you thought, "I got it!" he added another twist to the plot. I was unprepared for the ending, as was the author's intention. I recently obtained another J. Kellerman book and am trying to hurry through my other stack of books so I can get to it! (Oh, I might just have to sneak it in there sooner....)
The characterization -- awesome. You feel like Alex is your best friend, or maybe even YOU, in another life. The descriptions make the reader feel THAT close to Alex. Excitement in this book never ends. I was annoyed when it ended because I wanted more, more, more! You must read this book and have the ride of your life, or at least your book-reading life. I have students who think reading is boring. Clearly, they've never read Jonathan Kellerman!
that one is SCARY! Even though Alex ... well, I don't want to give
anything away, so I'll just leave it at that. Alex sure does get himself
into spooky situations. And he can't keep his mouth shut! Who would have
thought Alex would be such as smartalec?
In this one Alex and Robin are seperated and she's off finding herself
or something. In his boredom and despair, he agrees to attend a faculty
party celebrating the appointment of a new department head. Alex and his
friend Larry attend just to make snide remarks about Paul Kruse, the man
of honor. At the party, Alex spots an old flame and that's when all the
Sharon corners him and all his conflicting emotions flood to the
surface. She says she is not doing so well and wants to get together
with him - just to talk. He agrees, but later, he regrets it and calls
to cancel, leaves a message on her machine. The next day, she is dead -
an apparent suicide - and Alex blames himself. He flashes back to their
relationship in Grad School - which is pretty darned steamy - and then
starts digging - into her past as well as into his own soul and what he
finds isn't all that pretty.
At the start, Milo and Rick are off on a fishing trip and Milo's
description of this trip is pretty darned funny. Alex gets his friend
involved in all the mess, though, and then goes off on his own, leaving
poor Milo out in the cold. I hope he makes it up to Milo in the next
Another book I couldn't put down - another sleepless night - I should
charge the author for my sleep deprivation therapy.
