Product Description

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Victims.

The closing of the grand old Fauborg Hotel in Beverly Hills is a sad occasion for longtime patrons Alex Delaware and Robin Castagna, who go there one last time for cocktails. But even more poignant—and curious—is a striking young woman in elegant attire and dark glasses, alone there and waiting in vain. Two days later, police detective Milo Sturgis comes seeking his psychologist comrade’s insights about a grisly homicide. To Alex’s shock, the brutalized victim is the same beautiful woman whose lonely hours sipping champagne at the Fauborg may have been her last. But when a sordid revelation finally cracks the case open, the secrets that spill out could make Alex and Milo’s best efforts to close this crime not just impossible but fatal.

"And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT" -- Revelation 17:5 (NKJV)

An accidental encounter places Alex Delaware in the middle of a murder investigation, one that involves the ugly underbelly of the "beautiful life" in Southern California. As a result, he has a bigger role to play, there are more and more relevant psychological insights to share, and more realistic reasons for Alex to be involved with Milo Sturgis in the investigation into a brutal slaying.

I thought that most of this book was better plotted than many of the recent offerings in this series. The red herrings were more plausible and intriguing . . . and the resolution of the mystery was more unexpected than usual. A bit of the ending was hard to swallow, but I had enjoyed what led up to the resolution enough for that not to trouble me too much.

Some of the dialogue is extremely witty in making social commentary about the "culture" of those with the most toys. I also appreciated the heavy dose of irony that Jonathan Kellerman used to indicate his views about those who don't care who gets hurt . . . as long as they get what they want.

I also enjoyed the many images that were conjured up to provide atmosphere of the sort that used to make the noir detective and crime novels about Hollywood so appealing.

Nice work, Dr. Kellerman!

This is the twentieth book in the Alex Delaware series and it was a pretty good read. The story was interesting enough to keep me turning pages and as yet, the series is not starting to become formulaic. I still like the characters..something that doesn't always happen in a long series.
