Format: Paperback
I very much enjoyed this book, the plot centred around a cry for help from an ex-patient. This is no normal young man, but a precocious young genius who is almost a totally unsympathetic character. He is arrested for a series of murders committed whilst in a psychotic state.
The plot unfolds in timely fashion, and if you are anything like me you will have made a couple of wrong guesses before the final denouement.
A nice change from the beautiful wide eyed little children Alex Delaware seems to find himself protecting. I was also pleased that he didn't get too involved in confronting the perpetrators, avoiding the final confrontation scene which is played out so often, with the hero taking on the villain single handed and ending the book terribly injured, but having survived (yawn).
Interesting, enjoyable and well worth reading.

As you may already know this is the 3rd in Jonathan Kellermans long running Alex Delaware series. It starts with one of Alex's ex-patients, a troubled young man believed to be suffering from schizophrenia, contacting him after escaping from the mental hospital he was being held at. It leads to an unforunately long winded story of family secrets, corrupt businessman and the deranged mentally handicapped that usually bring something extra to Kellermans stories.
This one however seemed to fall a bit flat for me, too long considering the slow pace. I'll definately continue this series having been impressed with the previous books; When the Bough Breaks & Blood Test. And kudos must go to Kellerman for his amazing prose and character descriptions which really are a driving force for the series.

I have now read about 5 of Jonathon Kellerman's books and I am yet to be disappointed by one. Over the Edge is sharply written and completely compeling. I read it in two days straight over a rainy weekend and experienced that sense of loss and sadness when a really good read is finished. The book starts with an ex-patient of Alex's calling for help in the middle of the night. The boy is later found at the scene of the latest in a long line of slasher serial murders with a knife in his hand. He is now completely psychotic or is he?

I have read many Alex Delaware novels previously but out of sequence, I have now decided to read them chronologically. Kellerman has created a fantastically gripping tale and although I guessed part of the ending (the clues were there if you looked) it did not disappoint. Kellerman integrates his
psychological training and experience so well into his literature that at times I wonder where Delaware begins and Kellerman ends!

I am not reading these books in the order they were written. This is the 14th I have read, and if I were ranking them in order of enjoyment, it would be ... number 14. That's not to say it's a bad book - it's not - it is just not as brilliant as the others. It's possible that part of my reading pleasure was marred by reading a truly awful kindle edition. Words are split into two, three or even four parts - psy ch o logists - or two or three words are run together. There is some form of error on almost every page. I would still recommend it, but I would advise you to get a paper copy.

I have long been a fan of the Dr Delaware books by Jonathan Kelland and having a Kindle is giving me the chance to collect the whole series from the beginning. The books are great, psychologically based crime with enough human interest about Dr Delaware himself, his partner and friends and way of life and, of course, a satisfactory conclusion to the story. So, a 5 Star book but only a 4 Star rating for the Kindle edition because of one really annoying typographical error - long words are constantly split into two by having a space inserted in the middle, eg. inter national.

All of the Alex Delaware novels are gripping and this was no exeption. A real page turner, I loved it.
