Jonathan Kellerman ç 5 Free downloadFull review to come The family especially stands out in this one There are some Class of 92: Out of Our League great and surprising characters in this book who unfortunately do nothing surprising I think the reason I rated it so low is because the end disappoints Prior to the ending it is a page turning smart mystery But you veot to have an ending I ve been finding many of the Alex Delaware novels somewhat meh lately but this novel redeemed the series a bit for me Sometimes I wonder why I keep up with the series because there are some things that rate on me The minute details of what a person wears how they look what they re eating etc etc after 18 books of this it feels a little over done sometimes Also even though Alex Delaware is the protagonist of the series I actually don t feel a compelling connection with him as a character The other players in the series feel alive than Delaware himself Alex often comes off as disconnected from the emotion of everything almost non feeling empty emotionally boring It s *hard to explain but I can say it is frustrating as a *to explain but I can say it is frustrating as a I suspect this won t change and I probably will continue with the series I ve made it this far after allWhat I liked about this latest entry was the depth of the plot it was very well done and didn t feel as out there as some of the others did Recommended for any Delaware fan I ve been reading Kellerman s Alex Delaware novels in order for a little while now and they are all very solid suspense mysteriesThey et a little slow and confusing midway but they are well plotted and start and end well This book strained credibility for a few reasons Milo

N there’s another ruesomely familiar murder Delaware surmises that his investigation has struck a nerve As he trolls the twisted wreckage of uick’s tormented last days what he finds isn’t madness but the cold blooded method behind it And as he follows a chain of reed corruption and betrayal snaking hideously through the profession he thought he knew he’ll discover territory where even he never dreamed of treadingAs provocative as it is suspenseful Therapy is premier Kellerman that finds the award winning author firing on all creative cylinders and carrying readers on an electrifying ride to a place only he can take them for an experience they won’t soon forge.
