Guilt | [Jonathan Kellerman]

Guilt

When a young couple takes possession of their dream home, they can't wait to remodel the neglected mansion. That is until they make a gruesome discovery of a rusted metal strongbox containing two rotting leather doctor's bags. And inside each bag, swaddled in sheets of 60-year-old newspaper, lies a tiny human skeleton. The case hits the media, and theories abound. The most likely culprit is a mysterious woman, employed as private nurse to wealthy L.A. families during World War Two.

Publisher's Summary

When a young couple takes possession of their dream home, they can't wait to remodel the neglected mansion. That is until they make a gruesome discovery of a rusted metal strongbox containing two rotting leather doctor's bags. And inside each bag, swaddled in sheets of 60-year-old newspaper, lies a tiny human skeleton. The case hits the media, and theories abound. The most likely culprit is a mysterious woman, employed as private nurse to wealthy L.A. families during World War Two and Lieutenant Milo Sturgis consults psychologist Alex Delaware for insight into the perpetrator's motives. But the horror is just beginning.

Two more bags are discovered, but this time the infants inside have been dead less than a month. Is a copycat at work? Or is there a link between the two finds which goes back decades? By the time both cases close, Alex and Milo will have confronted unprecedented narcissism, cruelty, deceit, and a cold but fiendish objectification of the human spirit that shakes both men to the core....

    "Still not sure about the end"

    Really enjoyed this book - enjoy Jonathan Kellerman's novels most of the time anyway but this I found quite ambiguous at the end. Not sure if that was the author's intention but he seemed to raise a bit of a question mark. May need to revisit it just to check. Really enjoyable and look forward to the next Dr Delaware outing.

    "A welcome return for Alex Delaware"

    OK so this is not Jonathan Kellerman at his absolute best, but it is an Alex Delaware novel so you can't go wrong! It starts off very well, and initially I was completely drawn into the plot. The relationship between Alex and Milo, is as compelling as ever and Kellerman's characterisation is excellent. John Rubinstein narrates well and the first two thirds of the novel move at a good pace. However, I did find that the plot became rather ridiculous about two thirds in and I did slightly lose interest. Despite this, Kellerman writes so much better than most of his contemporaries that I find it hard to criticise him!
