Review

'The expected unexpected twists are embedded in a tale of real texture: every character, no matter how minor is given a life of their own -- and the cat-and-mouse interviews led by Sturgis as he tries to nail a suspect are nothing less than superb' -- Evening Standard 'It's always a pleasure to read Kellerman, who injects his fast-paced psychological thrillers with enough humour and authentic glimpses of LA life to leaven his often grisly themes' -- Daily Mail

It's always a pleasure to begin a new story with a familiar lead character that has always appealed (this is Kellerman's 24th Alex Delaware novel). Readers/listeners know what to expect, and in this case it's an extremely well crafted crime novel that leaves us in suspense until the last page. A great deal of the enjoyment in an Alex Delaware novel is the friendship and working relationship between Delaware, a consulting psychologist, and Mike Sturgis, an LAPD homicide detective. Their verbal exchanges as the two dig in to solve a crime are thought provoking and entertaining.

Kellerman knows how to pen an attention grabbing and keeping opener - with Evidence the bodies of a young couple are found, obviously they've been murdered and were left in a ghoulish embrace. They're discovered by a night watchman doing routine rounds through a "rich-idiot neighborhood." The site is a half-finished house that would rival a castle when completed. The male half of this post mortem placement is Desmond Backer, an architect who when still breathing would have hated the kind of structure he's found dead in. Desmond, it seems also had a way with women - better said his way with women as he's described as one who "jumps anything with ovaries." Clearly as dead as Desmond is a young woman who is not immediately identified.

One female Desmond had not been able to charm was his ex-boss, Helga Gagman, who sorrows not at all upon hearing of his untimely death. Milo and Alex soon have a long list of suspects that eventually narrows and places them in mortal danger. There are clues leading to eco-terrorism, a multi-level conspiracy, and all manner of evil doings.

I love Mr Kellerman's books. I enjoy the chemistry between Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis, but in the last few books the the storylines seem to run out of steam! It's a shame, the writing is still superb, but the mystery has gone and the action of previous books has disappeared. It's not as bad as James Patterson as far as plots go, but the edge that was once here is no longer!

We all know these books wouldn't work without the dialogue between Alex and Milo.
That said, I totally agree with the review that pointed out that Alex had no purpose in this book, just following Milo around. His home life with Robin and
the dog was about as dull as it gets. Throw in a weak plot and characters nobody cares about and it turns out to be just a stale read. Bring back the best like the one I really liked being "The Murder Book".

Though not as thrilling as Kellerman's past works, Evidence is an insightful and entertaining book to read. He brings the dangers, horrors and insights to the reader in a manner that attest to his writing skills. The twists in the plot comes out right and the way the threads are laid out leading to the finale is great. Reminds me of Triple Agent Double Cross. The characters are equally fascinating and revealing.

Format: Paperback
"Evidence," (2009), clocks in as the 24th Alex Delaware novel (after Bones) by New York Times bestselling American mystery author Jonathan Kellerman. Although, as many reviewers have pointed out, Delaware serves no apparent function here, he's seemingly just along for the chit chat as veteran Los Angeles homicide cop Milo Sturgis solves the case. The book, as most, if not all the series, is set in Los Angeles, where it explores areas and tells stories that are a long way from the La Brea tar pits or the tour of Universal Studios. In an immense, vulgar half-built mansion in Holmby Hills, one of the tonier Los Angeles neighborhoods, ex-cop Doyle Bryczinski, sidelined by a leg injury, now a watchman stumbles onto the bodies of a young couple who have been murdered and left in a shocking ritualistic embrace. The male victim is easily identified as tending-to-green architect Desmond Backer, widely considered catnip for women; the female victim is harder to place. Construction had halted on the Mcmansion two years earlier, and ownership can be traced only to a now-defunct holding company in Washington, D.C. Theories abound: the site owners were 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.

Kellerman is one of the world's most popular authors. He is a clinical psychologist and has published more than 30 bestselling crime novels, including

Decided to write this review without reading the ones that went before. Will be interesing to see how they tally...

On the plus side. The presence of Robin, the Koi and the dog are kept to a minimum. And no remarks about Milo's pock-marked face, grey sideburns, bunions or flab either. Kellerman seems to be showing more restraint than usual!!

On the negative...the wig scene? Oh, puh-leeze. Talk about predictable. As for Milo making up the end tale and not getting a thing wrong. Yes, Officer, I did it!! Bunkum!!!!

Otherwise, it was like slipping on a comfortable pair of old slippers. Warm and reassuring. Not Kellerman's best but not his worst.
