Format: Hardcover
If you have read previous installments in this author's ongoing series about Alex Delaware then you know what to expect here - a well written, cleverly plotted suspense novel. In this book you get exactly that and it is a gripping read. Even if you haven't previously read any of the novels in this series I suspect that you will find it easy to follow as there are very few references to previous events and the book stands well on its own. I have read all the Alex Delaware books and this is definitely one of the best.

Our favourite psychologist is involved in giving expert evidence in court in a custody battle between two sisters. The story starts with one sister threatening to kill him only for her to end up dead herself very soon afterwards. Alex finds himself paired up with his old friend Milo Sturgis and not only in fear of his life but beginning to think that the assessment he has made about the case may have been very wrong.

The book concentrates on the case and Alex's reactions to events and has a reasonable amount of action. The author also uses the book to make some pertinent points about the American justice system and the way in which child custody cases are handled. The strong point of this series is the insight which the author via Alex gives you into people's thoughts and behaviour. The plot is very much driven by the characters and the puzzle isn't always to work out who has done it but to find out why.

This books is well paced, full of action and has some interesting twists. Its best feature is that it is a very readable story. I very much enjoyed reading it and thank the publishers for a free copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have read this series since the beginning and I enjoy them. I don't think Killer is as tense or exciting as some of the earlier novels but it is still a good read which I devoured in 2 sittings. 2 sisters get caught up in a custody battle over one sister's child. Accusations fly but the mother gets to keep her child and the aunt is a poor loser who starts issuing threats to Alex and the judge. Then she is murdered and the mother and baby disappear. This book is a slow burner as the first third of the book is taken up by the custody battle but then with the murder we get to the meat and bones of it. It is cleverly plotted, although the justification for it all is a bit lame, and certainly keeps you on your toes trying to work it out. I like Alex and Milo as characters - they have a nicely honed routine going and are pleasant to read about. This is not one of Mr Kellerman's best offerings but is still a good read.

Kellerman's Killer maintains the very high standard of this series. Dr Delaware is directly threatened by a client and his nervous reaction and subsequent discovery that the threat was serious launches the reader into mother tremendous cat and mouse storyline. I thought this book was actually better than the previous one. So somehow Kellerman manages to stick to the well worked formula and yet delivers a high standard of dialogue, intrigue and continued back story delight.

I always enjoy spending time with Alex and Milo. This one focuses a little more on Alex's clinical work, with gentle barbs at the US legal system - a well rounded, thoughtful and intelligent thriller with a very engaging protagonist once again demonstrates nuance, insight and the kind of comments about wider society that Travis McGee would nod in agreement with. Those two would get on famously.

Clever interesting thriller about Alex's clinical treatment of a hippie young woman with a baby whose sister tries to get foster parental control. A complex suite of murders and kidnapping follows with a brilliant conclusion that I didn't guess until nearly at the end.
Strongly recommended to all who follow the series. It is probably not one to read as the first experience off this great series.

After the somewhat pedestrian previous novel, 'Victims', Kellerman is back-on form with a fast-paced thriller in which Alex Delaware predominates. Interesting subject matter and plot which force self-doubt on AD and the occasional frisson between him and Milo.

I realised at the start of this book that Alex needs Milo to be a good read. It started out with Milo keeping his distance because of the circumstances of the story but they are a good partnership and that makes for good reading. The plot is different, quite convoluted but in our world of 'anything goes' quite believable. I know plots have to move with the times as do the characters but I hope that Jonathan Kellerman manages to keep with easy relationship between Alex and Milo strong.
