I enjoyed the book but I probably won't listen to it again. I only listen to the Alex Delaware books once.
I don't have a specific moment to mention. I enjoyed the fact that there were two mysteries and two investigations. The characters--leads, suspects and witnesses--were unique characters.
I love John Rubenstein. I have seen him on stage and on TV. He makes Alex into a compelling character. He does all the voices well.
An old mystery and a new one--what happened to these babies?
This is one of the better Alex Delaware books.It is definitely worth a listen.
Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.
Waiting for the ...but? Dead children and women are beginning to pall on my mind. Perhaps I need to seek stories with more carefully crafted and less predictable mysteries?
You'll enjoy this if you've just dipped into the Alex Delaware stories. Kellerman is good at his work and produces a novel that flows well with plenty of suspense.
I'm just beginning to question the idea of making women and children the focus of crime in stories. It frightens me, considering the news.
And, look, I'm not blaming the genre for the uptick in violent crime. I'm in the process of questioning.
First and last book by these folks. We were sailing a long passage and it was what we had, but if you have competition for your time, this book will not make the cut. Not a snappily written book, there is very little humor or real drama. We had a "Who cares?" feeling about the conclusion. The characters and the plot are not compelling. Reading is average.
The author does a great job of presenting a believable cast of characters, who are intertwined quite cleverly until the jaw dropping conclusion.
I've read a lot of Alex Delaware books throughout the years. I really loved the early books, but after a while I started getting tired of the series. I decided to take a chance on this new book and was quite pleased. Guilt was nothing spectacular, but a good listen. I will look forward to the next book. I think Alex is back!
I have rarely been disappointed in any books in this series. The plot pacing works will with the audio medium therefore I prefer to listen to this series rather that read it.
Most likely .
Possibly, I have often thought this series would translate nicely to the big screen. Depending on casting of the lead characters.
I haven't read the book so I don't know if the audio edition is better. I typically listen instead of reading.
I am a fan of the Alex Delaware series. This was not the best of the series, but it is a very good story line with some unexpected twists.
The end where the police contacted the husband of the movie star and his girlfriend opened the door with white powder on her face as did the husband. It's art imitating life having been in law enforcement myself.
No - even if I wanted to, I don't have that luxury. I do listen while I workout (sometimes), while I was traveling, before I went to bed and while I work around the house.
I very much enjoy Jonathan Kellerman and always look forward to the next Alex Delaware novel. I will wait for the next one in the series. :)
I am a closet hopeful novelist myself and love the twists that Kellerman throws in to each of his story lines. Just when you think you have it all figured out, something new comes along.
Reading an Alex Delaware novel is like having dinner with an old friend. It's just good company. I really enjoy the stories and the dialog between the main characters. This installment is just good entertainment Kellerman weaves a great story.
Love the Milo Characterization
I prefer audiobooks as I drive a lot for work and also listen as I'm cleaning my house, doing chores and exercising.
This is a good Kellerman book. Alex and Milo have a great relationship, Alex's observations are always fun and I love me some Blanche.
Alex, of course.
This is a good Alex Delaware read. Fans of the series will not be disappointed in the latest chapter of Milo and Alex's lives.
I have read or listened to every J Kellerman out there and always enjoyed reading his books. Since I have been listening to him on Audible, I have decided this is my last one. His stories are repetitive. It just seems he has lost his touch for the thriller. Jon Rubenstein is the other reason I can no longer listen to any of his books. He is a good Milo but for the rest I feel his voice is so grating. Sorry Mr. Kellerman, you have lost a reader and listener with this one. Movie stars, murders, cleaned bones and a tribe of kids. A cross between Michael Jackson and Angelina with a touch of true evil thrown in. Seriously? Actually if I could get my credit back I would be very happy.
