Product Description

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

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.

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.

It's always a pleasure to begin a new story with a familiar lead character that has always appealed (this is Kellerman's 24th Alex Delaware novel). Readers/listeners know what to expect, and in this case it's an extremely well crafted crime novel that leaves us in suspense until the last page. A great deal of the enjoyment in an Alex Delaware novel is the friendship and working relationship between Delaware, a consulting psychologist, and Mike Sturgis, an LAPD homicide detective. Their verbal exchanges as the two dig in to solve a crime are thought provoking and entertaining.

Kellerman knows how to pen an attention grabbing and keeping opener - with Evidence the bodies of a young couple are found, obviously they've been murdered and were left in a ghoulish embrace. They're discovered by a night watchman doing routine rounds through a "rich-idiot neighborhood." The site is a half-finished house that would rival a castle when completed. The male half of this post mortem placement is Desmond Backer, an architect who when still breathing would have hated the kind of structure he's found dead in. Desmond, it seems also had a way with women - better said his way with women as he's described as one who "jumps anything with ovaries." Clearly as dead as Desmond is a young woman who is not immediately identified.

One female Desmond had not been able to charm was his ex-boss, Helga Gagman, who sorrows not at all upon hearing of his untimely death. Milo and Alex soon have a long list of suspects that eventually narrows and places them in mortal danger. There are clues leading to eco-terrorism, a multi-level conspiracy, and all manner of evil doings.

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.

As a huge Jonathan Kellerman fan, and as someone who has been enjoying the Alex Delaware series, I have to be honest and say that this was his most disappointing book (with exception to the one he co-wrote with his wife). The plot was incredibly difficult to follow, the conversations were disorganized - for example, Alex and Milo would start talking radomly about things that had nothing to do with the case they were working on and these didn't even make sense!, the story was ridiculous and boring, and so stupid. It seemed to have potential right from the get go, but it completely fell short quickly into the book. It was a disorganized mess, and completely unentertaining. Normally, I read his books very quickly, but this one I struggled to get to the middle, and even then, it was a struggle to continue. Very disappointed.
