Publisher's Summary

From two number-one best-selling masters of crime fiction comes an extraordinary thriller about family, murder, and the secrets that refuse to stay buried.

It's been more than a year since LAPD detective Jacob Lev learned the remarkable truth about his family, and he's not coping well. He's back to drinking, he's not talking to his father, the LAPD Special Projects Department continues to shadow him, and the memory of a woman named Mai haunts him day and night.

And while Jacob has tried to build a bridge to his mother, she remains a stranger to him, imprisoned inside her own tattered mind.

Then he comes across the file for a gruesome unsolved murder that brings the two halves of his life into startling collision.

Finding the killer will take him halfway around the world, to Paris - the city of romance but also of gritty streets behind the lights. It's a dangerous search for truth that plunges him into the past.

And for Jacob Lev, there is no place more frightening.

Jonathan Kellerman has long been known for his mastery of criminal psychology and his ability to create thrilling novels of nuanced drama and suspense. But in The Golem of Paris, he and Jesse Kellerman raise that suspense to a whole new level.

    "A weeker second effort"

    You would have to read the fist book in this series to follow most of the action in this book. Like allot of second books in a series this book has issues as a stand alone novel. It spends too much time with the back story then it does with the main plot line. This makes the read a start- stop affair. I would have been nice if a little more editing allowed for a smoother flow. all and all; The book acquitted itself as a good read. The Narration was as always excellent

    Any additional comments?

    I found the book to be boring beyond all comprehension.
    I kept hoping it would get better but after 2 hours, I bailed and started listening to something else

    I've been with Audible for about 8 years now and have collected a very large library. I find it so enjoyable to be able to sit back and listen to a story being read to me whether its a lunch break, waiting for an appointment or relaxing before bed. I've even listened while out on a bike ride or a long walk.

    "Such a slow moving book. I have read just about ever single story written from all three of the Kellermans"

    I found this story to be very slow and disjointed. I was extremely very disappointed in this book. For only the second time in over three hundred titles, I will be asking for a refund as I did not enjoy this book in the least little bit

    "Totally Boring"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love Jonathan Kellerman books and I am disappointed that this one did not come close to hitting the mark.


    What could Jonathan Kellerman and Jesse Kellerman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not Publish it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    They all bored me to tears. In fact I was so confused and mis-directed that I almost doesed off while driving listening to this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If there were any redeeming qualities, my mind wandered and I missed them.


    Any additional comments?

    Kellerman usually hits it out of the park but this one is a totally a foul ball. Don't let this book discourage you from listening to the exceptional catalog of Kellerman's Delaware novels.

    "Riveting"

    This was an excellent read... Exciting plot, creatively imagined, and a pretty thrilling mystery... I will say that those not having read the preceding entry may be a little lost at points, but who starts a series w/ the 2nd book... Great characters w/ absolutely superb narration... This book clears up some of the questions from the 1st installment, and brings up others, likely to be investigated in the next book, and there's most certainly a 3rd coming... I found it riveting, and read it in a couple of sittings... Worth the credit... Kellermans are awesome at the page turner...
