Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
`Victims' by Jonathan Kellerman was one of his better novels. His last few books I have found a tad disappointing. I have been reading Kellerman since he hit the shelves way back when. Like all authors with books featuring the same principle characters, some you like better than others. But I have been so disappointed in Kellerman that I now wait until the paperback comes out. I figure if the guy is going to disappoint me then it will be at paperback prices rather than hardcover price. This novel followed the same plot line that Kellerman has used from the start. Homicide Det Milo Sturgis comes up with a case involving homicidal maniac(s), and calls psychologist Dr.Alex Delaware. The plot includes some interesting characters, with some interesting quirks. Kellerman writing is to the point and the plot moves along at a good pace. There are some slow spots, not a page turner, but `Victims' was a solid read. It was certainly better than some he has written.

Format: Hardcover
"It is in my power to do you harm, . . . ." -- Genesis 31:29 (NKJV)

If your stomach becomes queasy from reading about gruesome events, Victims will turn you off.

If you like police procedurals that are deeply based in psychological roots for a crime, Victims will be quite appealing.

The book's main weakness is that the resolution of the story comes at such a rushed pace that it doesn't really take full advantage of the opportunities to build and to release tension. I also didn't think that quite enough clues were dropped in advance to alert readers to a major subplot.

I don't know about you, but I was getting tired of Alex Delaware mainly being in the books because Milo Sturgis seems to be averse to driving around alone. There are real issues here for Dr. Delaware to address, and his perspective and background significantly contribute to the plot.

I feel more than a little encouraged that this series could be in the process of improving. That would be excellent!

Maybe I'm getting tired of reading him, but this was an OK book but not great. More of a used buy than a new one.
