Therapy

I am really into Jonathan Kellerman at the moment and have to admit to really enjoying this the eighteenth adventure featuring Clinical Psychologist Dr Alex Delaware. Delaware appears to be having some joy in his personal life following the ending of his long-term relationship with Robyn Castagna. His new girlfriend, Allison, is also a psychologist who takes a more professional interest in his work with LAPD.

A young couple are found dead in a car in Beverley Hills. Both have been shot though the girl has also been stabbed. Both Delaware and LAPD detective Milo Sturgis are involved in the investigation. The male victim is quickly identified but it is not so easy with the female. Nobody knows her and nobody reports her missing.

The murder heralds the start of s series of murders and nobody seems to know why. Those close to the deceased appear to want nothing to do with it and at times it appears there are deliberate attempts to sabotage the police investigation. As in all Delaware stories there is no shortage of blind alleys for he and Sturgis to explore.

Slowly and sometimes as much by luck than design patterns start to evolve. It leads both Delaware and Sturgis to the fact that major fraud of the federal government may be at the root of the murders. Once again the lure of money has a horrific impact on humanity.

Kellerman maintains a high writing standard throughout which given the number of titles in the series thus far is no mean achievement. The characters continue to evolve and although some characters have moved into the background from previous stories the introduction of new policeman, Sean Binchy, is interesting as Sturgis starts to put together his own team.

Well worth a read.

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.

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.....:-/
