Book Description

4 Mar 2010 Alex Delaware (Book 24)

Early one morning a foreman shows up at the building site of a mega-mansion. Proceeding up unfinished plank steps, he arrives at the master bedroom. There, lying on a blanket, are a man and a woman, stabbed and bludgeoned to death.

Who are the lovers? Why have they chosen a construction site for their late-night tryst. Is the double murder simply a horrific example of wrong-place, wrong-time? Or were the victims stalked? And will the outrage be repeated?

Alex and Milo are called in;as they struggle to make their way through the alternative universe that is the domain of the impossibly rich, they discover a scheme rooted in deception and evil beyond even their imaginations.

4.0 out of 5 stars another topnotch alex delaware mystery 25 Oct 2009
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit run of the mill! 2 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A story with a twist 3 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Stale 4 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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".

Kellerman never fails to disappoint. Each instalment featuring Delaware and Sturgis is like catching up with old friends. I am pleased to report both are doing very well and are on fine form.
