Book Description

Feb. 23 2010 Alex Delaware
In a half-built mansion in Los Angeles, a watchman stumbles onto the bodies of a young couple—murdered and left in a gruesome postmortem embrace. Veteran homicide cop Milo Sturgis is shocked at the sight: a twisted crime that only Milo and psychologist Alex Delaware can hope to solve. While the female victim’s identity remains in question, her companion is ID’d as eco-friendly architect Desmond Backer, notorious for his power to seduce women. The deeper Milo and Alex dig for clues, the longer the list of suspects grows. But when the investigation veers suddenly in a startling direction, it’s the investigators who may wind up on the wrong end of a cornered predator’s final fury.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't recommend this book June 22 2013
Format:Paperback
This was my first book by Jonathan Kellerman and I found it to be disappointing. Right from the beginning, it was difficult to follow. Most of the story was presented by two characters; Dr. Delaware (a criminal profiler) and the detective Miles Sturgis. They are very close friends and finish each other’s sentences, and skip back and forth, seemingly all over the place.

The plot was overly complicated and not particularly compelling. The good news is that I also had another book by the same author: Twisted. I have just completed that book and loved it, so I will read more of Jonathan Kellerman’s books. Methinks this was just not one of his better books, but there are lots more to choose from as he has published over 25 books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story with a twist Feb. 27 2013
By John T C TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Though not as thrilling as Kellerman's past works, Evidence is an insightful and entertaining book to read. He brings the dangers, horrors and insights to the reader in a manner that attest to his writing skills. The twists in the plot comes out right and the way the threads are laid out leading to the finale is great. Reminds me of Triple Agent Double Cross. The characters are equally fascinating and revealing.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"I will punish the world for its evil,
And the wicked for their iniquity;
I will halt the arrogance of the proud,
And will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible."

--Isaiah 13:11

The appeal of Evidence is all in the running down of clues and leads. If a slow-developing investigation is not your cup of iced tea (one of Milo's favorite beverages), you should avoid this Evidence.

The facts behind the various crimes rely on some pretty unusual characters and personal histories, ones that may strike you as unrealistic rather than exotic. If you want motives and backgrounds to be more run-of-the-mill, this isn't your story either.

I like police procedurals, but I was puzzled by the device of merely having Alex Delaware along for the ride. Why not just let Milo be the narrator in first person and give Alex a vacation? If you are looking for brilliant Delaware insights, you'll be very disappointed with this book.

I thought the plot was more than a little far-fetched, but it was redeemed up to average for me by some astonishing plot twists that came along when I was just about to lose interest.

All in all, Evidence is a reasonably entertaining read . . . but one that's uncharacteristic of the series.
