The best part is several brilliantly-drawn minor characters with interesting psychological profiles. They're not as pathological as the sickest characters in the series, most are functional but troubled. It's interesting to see a mystery that results from the interactions of relatively minor problems rather than the clichéd twisted genius pyschopath.
Unfortunately, the threads never weave together tightly, the story is more like billiard balls bouncing off one another than a classic Kellerman masterpiece. Many things are unexplained. Why do two successful lawyers dress like hookers? What's going on with the good guy cut-price lawyer and the bad gal star lawyer? Why is Milo trying to give away money inappropriately? In fact both Milo and Robin appear to have mailed in their contributions, decorating the margins of the story without really being in it. Since no other character makes up more than a small fraction of the book's attention, Killer is too Alex-heavy (one Kellerman's few faults is a tendency to wallow in Alex's self-indulgent mild depression, most readers have plenty of friends willing to supply such stimulus).
Another criticism is the characters seem stuck in the mid-90s. Mobile devices and the Internet seem like afterthoughts, there's a lot more use of landlines, answering machines and human answering services than is common in 2014.Read more ›
Delaware is asked by the courts to assess what appears to be a straightforward case between a single mother Cherie (Ree);and her sister Connie for custody of Ree's sixteen month daughter Rambla. Ree is a single parent, an unsophisticated original flower child throwback, and her elder sister Connie is a dominating, cold hearted, emotionless and successful owner of a pathology laboratory. Things turn nasty when Connie, realising that Alex's decision is not in her favour, tells Alex "I'm not going to shoot you, Doctor Delaware. Even though I should."
Alex knows that he is in grave danger when he hears rumours that Connie has put out a contract on the streets for his assassination. The danger doesn't last long when Connie is found stabbed and strangled, Ree and her baby disappear and Ree's aged rocker friends are in danger.
What started as a straightforward psychological assessment turns into a murder investigation. Alex helps his best friend LAPD Homicide Lieutenant Milo Sturgis to track down the killer and find Ree and her baby - possibly before it is too late.
Kellerman is a trained psychologist and this clearly shows in his characterisation of Alex Delaware and the way he treats his clients. His compassion is clearly evident and his clients trust him, even one of the most vicious gangsters in LA.Read more ›
