I've been reading Kellerman and his Delaware psycho-thrillers for about 20 years now, and haven't tired yet. Of course, he's had his ups and downs, some stories being better than others, and lately losing some luster - but this one is excellent.

The author is well into his third decade of writing (i.e, check his Deception, Compulsion, The Conspiracy Club, The Butcher's Theatre, et al.), and while I always find a comfortable familiarity with each of his books, I'm also pleased to see that he avoids the formulaic plotting that a lesser talent would have succumbed to by this point - apart from his fixation on meticulously listing what everyone's wearing as soon as they enter the scene (there must be a psychological explanation for this... OCD? eh, eh, eh).

So, anyway, MYSTERY is one of Kellerman's best works to date, with his two main characters - consultant psychologist Delaware and LAPD Detective Sturgis - meeting and greeting all types during the course of a difficult investigation into the gruesome murder (face blown off and other diverse mutilations) of a girl part of an online dating circuit. The pair follow a trail of secrets and deception in a plot that truly keeps you on your toes, with all the cyberspace ingredients so dramatically current in the area of online adult dating and depressing sex commerce.

By David H J Ashdown TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
An OK mystery about the murder of a call girl and her involvement with a sugar daddy with themes relating to family secrets and conspicuous wealth thrown in for good measure all set in LA. When the call girl is first noticed by Clinical Psychologist Alex Delaware in a hotel on its closing night then turns up with her face blown off Alex suspects that it's not a simple murder but something altogether more involved and together with Milo Sturgis , a lieutenant in the LAPD , they set out to solve the case. Sounds good but it's not a book you can't put down rather one you read if you've got a spare half hour then pick it up later. This is the second book I've read by this author but I won't worry if I don't read any more as I find his style a bit plodding.

After really getting absorbed in one of Kellerman's earlier novels after paying just 50p for a used copy, I had hoped to be similarly entertained by this brand new one, after someone kindly bought it for me,

Alex Delaware sees a beautiful, lonely woman in one of his old haunts and when a police detective Mike Sturgis later shows him a photo of the same girl violently murdered, he wants to learn more.And so he starts digging into the underbelly of dating agencies and the like in LA with whom Mystery, the name given to our Jane Doe in this novel, is known.

All well and good and perhaps, this novel will appeal more to those who can relate to this kind of world. Somehow, however, I just could not get into this novel and found it somewhat forgettable. That might be because of the pared-down dialogue, so that some of what takes place apparently needs to be second-guessed.

It's ok. However I have read other novels of his I have found to be far more engaging.

I agree with the other reviewers in that this is a good, if not great, Alex and Milo story. Always fun to catch up with them. I loved the idea of Milo considering Facial dermabrasion even if he doesn't mean it. Don't! You're lovely just as you are!
Anyway, worth mentioning that the Kindle version has double spacing between paragraphs. Given the quite small screen size on a Kindle this means I am paging more than I expect to and it kind of ruins the illusion that I am still reading a book.

This is quite a good read. The mystery element is well-developed and had me thinking. So Kellerman had me invested early and didn't detour with his writing. But it would be too much to say this was an outstanding mystery as it sort if goes where a lot of others before it have gone.

It was my first time with the pairing of the gay cop, Milo, with the psychologist who seems to get involved in the cases Milo is working on without having an official role. This unusual set-up made the plot reasonably interesting, but Kellerman doesn't otherwise do a great deal with his characterisations.

I wasn't knocked out by this book, but it was very readable and will have me going back for more by the author. 7/10

Sorry....but can't say this is close to the best after reading them all. First of all, thought the Cover was even strange, referring to Delaware as "The Crime Reader"....where did that come from. The story started and played out okay, but the plot was kind-of wierd as it progressed along and then the ending with Alex just laying out what happened with Milo just sitting outside waiting to end the whole thing.
Just didn't work for me. If you want something worthwhile, stumbled across William Lashner books in a series of stories about Philly Lawyer Victor Carl....can guarantee these to keep you guessing right up to the end....loved them....read them in proper sequence....great stuff.
