KILLER                                                      JONATHAN KELLERMAN
Posted:  March 29, 2014


After thirty-five riveting, internationally acclaimed novels of psychological suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman returns with his most stunning thriller to date. Killer is a mesmerizing L.A. noir portrayal of the darkest impulses of human nature carried to shocking extremes.
The City of Angels has more than its share of psychopaths, and no one recognizes that more acutely than the brilliant psychologist and police consultant Dr. Alex Delaware. Despite that, Constance Sykes, a sophisticated, successful physician, hardly seems like someone Alex needs to fear. Then, at the behest of the court, he becomes embroiled in a bizarre child custody dispute initiated by Connie against her sister and begins to realize that there is much about the siblings he has failed to comprehend. And when the court battle between the Sykes sisters erupts into cold, calculating murder and a rapidly growing number of victims, Alex knows he’s been snared in a toxic web of pathology.
Nothing would please Alex more than to be free of the ugly spectacle known as Sykes v. Sykes. But then the little girl at the center of the vicious dispute disappears and Alex knows he must work with longtime friend Detective Milo Sturgis, braving an obstacle course of  Hollywood washouts, gangbangers, and self-serving jurists in order to save an innocent life.

This is the first time that I have read this author and I have seen he has written many books with some of the same characters in them. In this book Dr. Delaware is the main character and he does go into some back ground of him if you have not read any of the previous books. I did like that part I felt more in touch with the character. He is called in to look at a custody case between two sisters and of course the one sister that he does not agree with ends up dead. That for me is really when the story starts to take off. He is working with the police and with detective Milo Sturgis. They begin the ins and outs of interviewing people. There are a lot of different characters in this book and they are all well described and thought out. I even like the one gang member that he had been seeing since he was in grade school and how that story was inter twin into this story. Very good writing and a very well thought out story line that you had to keep track of all that was going on or you felt like you missed something. An excellent book. I got this book from net galley.

  1. Tom Corson-Knowles, the author who founded Bestseller Ranking Pro, spent six long years trying to get a traditional publishing deal (and failed miserably). He finally decided to self publish his first book on Kindle in February, 2012.

    That one decision changed his life (and the lives of the more than 30,000 authors he's since taught how to write, publish and market their books professionally).

    Just twelve months after self publishing his first book, Tom had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone.

    In Bestseller Ranking Pro, Tom will share with you his step-by-step system for becoming a bestselling author.

    These strategies have also helped Tom and his private publishing clients create more than sixty-seven #1 Amazon bestselling books and counting.
