Oh dear. This had such a promising start, but then quickly deteriorated into a long and rather dull conversation between the 2 main characters about what was happening - unfortunately this took up the last 2/3rds of the book. This is a great shame, as Milo and Alex and their respective lives are usually very interesting - here they become just mouthpieces with no outside life. The plot too is much too convoluted and I was doing serious skipping at the end. Please, for the next one, could we have more character and less plot!!

Normally a fan of Kellerman, I grabbed 'Therapy' with both hands and settled down for what I expected to be a good yarn in typical Kellerman fashion. The book starts promisingly but begins to fall off near the middle. Links become obscure and theories Sturgis and Delaware come up with turn into truth in a not altogether convincing way. Sometimes confusing, 'Therapy' lacks Kellerman's usual can't-put-it-down style. It is a good book, but I feel that the Sturgis-Delaware arrangement needs something new injected into it. It almost seems that the characters themselves are becoming bored themselves (with themselves???) Read this book, but don't expect something in the same vein as previous Kellerman bestsellers.

A very welcome return to form by Jonathan Kellerman. In recent years Alex Delaware has not fizzed, and has dwindled as rapdily as Alex's relationship with Robin. Perhaps a return to tried and tested territory with a plot involving the psychology profession has not only given Jonathan Kellerman a new breath of life, but has reinvigorated Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis.
The plot is excellent with many twists and turns and sorry for the cliché, but leaves the reader guessing until the end. Definitely the most unputdownable, non-stop page turning read of the year.
I am definitely looking forward to the next one.

Sometimes Kellerman gets it right (Bad Love, Doctor Death). Sometimes he gets it completely wrong (The one set on the island - can't remember the title. Not exactly memorable.)Therapy falls uncomfortably between the two stools.

The first plot hole/clunker happens almost at the start. Alex and Milo turn up at a guy's house in the middle of the night and, based on a less than reliable tip-off and no evidence whatsoever, they tell the guy that his daughter is dead - without so much as to ask to see a photo for identification purposes. Is it Kellerman's intention to insult the intelligence of the reader? What experienced professional investigator would make such a fundamental boob? Moreover, what experienced author would expect his readership to swallow such a contrived piece of "drama" and still have sympathy with his main protagonist?

The novel does improve - it is complex and considered - but ultimately the resolution is dull and unsatisfactory. I just wish JK was more consistant.

A very believable lead character, and an exciting read. This falls into the high octane catrgory of crime writing. There really is no part of the story I would dare to reveal as it is best read first hand. You won't be disappointed.

A long complex. murder and medical treatment story with Alex and Milo unravelling a murder of a young man and his girlfriend in a car. It is linked to swindlers using medical benefits for felons to finance psychological treatments. The ending is a surprise and it looks as if the author got lost and had to do a wrap out of context.

Fascinating insight into troubled minds. Characters described vividly. Partnership between Alex Delaware and MIlo the cop entertaining. Plots intricate but we'll written. Very informative 're Psychology. Great read. Difficult to put down.

Jonathan Kellerman is back to his very best with his novel. Alex Delaware is, I think, his alter-ego, or second skin, because it reads like you know the people and really care about them. Alex's new relationship is taken further in this novel and Milo is becoming less angry and more comfortable with who he is. The twists and turns this novel takes are amazing but I daren't say too much in case I spoil it for someone else. If you are a fan, you will love it, if you aren't, read it - you will become one!

Used to really love this guy but the endless theorising between Alex and Milo is becoming tedious. Also Alex is so perfect it's starting to make me sick......Probably won't read any more.....:-/
