    Exciting

    LA Homicide Detective Petra Connor looks at the corpses of the four dead lying in a dance-club parking following a drive by massacre and wonders what connections beyond the club and death link these victims. A few days later, the girl in pink shoes remains a Jane Doe and the case is going nowhere frustrating Petra......................................... At the same time that Petra struggles with no leads except rumors of a possible witness in hiding, twenty-two years old Ph.D. candidate Isaac Gomez has been analyzing homicide statistical patterns. He believes he has uncovered a trend involving a murderer who murders on June 28th and has for six years in row. No one in LAPD seems interested in the genius¿ findings writing him off as intellectual civilian and thereby ignoring any connections between these homicides though the MO are the same and none have been resolved. No one that is except Petra who knows that June 28th is coming soon and with the help of this young genius plans to end the serial killing of a twisted genius............................... Petra is a strong effective cop as she makes her lead debut after being a minor player as an officer in A COLD HEART. However, she seems overshadowed by Isaac a refreshing character who brings trend analysis into the LAPD (and police procedurals) and struggles with what his family wants of him (not police work that for sure). The two prime cases are cleverly designed and Petra does a solid job, but TWISTED really soars when Isaac is front and center as even his personal life especially in the library is invigorating.........................

    Kellerman departs from Delaware, but provides fresh characters, a great read!

    From the first time I was introduced to Alex Delaware and his cop pal Milo Sturgis, I was hooked on Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware series, and only recently began playing catch up with the books I'd skipped - namely those featuring spin offs for other characters from the Delaware stories.

    Twisted is the second story featuring Detective Petra Conner, a tough but likeable character who shows up from time to time in the Delaware series. The book also introduces a new character Isaac Gomez, a young genius from low income background working toward his PhD.

    Assigned as an intern to the LAPD, he shows Petra the results of some extensive statistical sampling of homicide case data he has compiled, noting unusual similarities between six cold cases that have never previously been considered connected. Already up to her eyeballs in one murder case, Petra finds it hard to take it all seriously, but agrees to take at least take a look at the cases. One by one, as pieces of the puzzle begin falling into place the plot quickly begins building and the reader is in for lots of twists and turns.

    Kellerman's a master at balancing several interesting plotlines at once with intriguing characters, and superb suspense leading up to a surprising but believable conclusion.

    Dynamite Thriller

    I really enjoyed this book, glad Kellerman is developing other characters, I am tired of Milo and Alex. Interesting plot, kept me involved, good character development, only negative was its length. Definitely recommended!!!!

    Another great Kellerman

    I have really warmed up to Petra Connors, particularly her reflections on the people she meets and investigates. This story was very engaging, and had some really creepy moments - in a good way. The station-house politics were a welcome addition, a reminder of the actual frustrations involved in police work. (With the Alex Delaware stories, he is a free agent and doesn't have to answer to anybody.)The two major plotlines were both interesting, although I enjoyed the June killings more. My only gripe was that the ends were tied up a little too loosely, with no real explanation of how Isaac got where he did and how Petra handled her suspect. I wish the ending had been fleshed out a bit more.

    Twisted Mystery

    Kellerman delivers an elaborate, tangled web of a whodunit with unsuspected turns at every chapter break. This an addictive read--a real page-turner.

    J. Kellerman is back in fine form

    It was a pleasure to read this book after several of the author's later Dr. Delaware mysteries. Dr. D.'s endless moaning over the loss of his love was beginning to make the novels lose focus. But Jonathan Kellerman is back in great form here with a new protagonist, police detective Petra Connor. Assisting her are the ever strong-but-silent Eric Stahl and grad-student genius Isaac Gomez. My only quibble with this book is the two crime story lines; somehow this works on CSI, but not in a long book in which a confusing number of names is involved in each case. Otherwise, this is a good read, and I look forward to more in the series.

    Good until the end

    The book seemed to run real smooth. The characters seemed so real and believable. The ending though seemed weak. Kept flipping looking for more, but not in a good way.

    Terrible Reader

    I could not seem to ever get into the storyline because the reader on this book was terrible. She was very monotone and did not differentiate her voice between characters. Therefore, every line of dialog seemed to run together and it was very hard to follow. There were no dramatic pauses or breaks. I have enjoyed Jonathan Kellerman books in the past but will refrain from purchasing any other books that use Lindsey Crouse as the reader.

    Bravo, this was a great one!

    I enjoy Jonathan Kellerman, and I gravitate towards the Alex Delaware books, so I wasn't sure I would enjoy this one as much. I was wrong, this book was wonderful, couldn't put it down. It's great to see an author who has been around a while still producing fresh, intriguing work.

    Best Kellerman work yet!

    This book was impossible to put down. Kellerman who always writes at a high level really brought his A game to this novel. As always he uses terrific description to not only make you feel you are right in the story but brings the characters to life. Best of all the dialogue is vivid, funny, heartbreaking, and pulse pounding whenever Kellerman wants it to be. This is definetly a book to read sooner rather than later!
