I don't recommend this book. In it, Alex Delaware acts as if he's Milo's assistant. He seems always at Milo's beck & call. There is no feeling that he has a private practice (even though he mentions that he turned down an offer of full-time work with the LAPD because his own practice was so much more lucrative and in one scene he tends to his billing). There's no real reason for Alex, the ostensible protagonist of Jonathan Kellerman's series, to even be involved in this story--he makes little contribution except to drive Milo around and occasionally provide him with food to eat. Please bring back the plots where this child psychologist uses his training & expertise--and maybe interactions with his current or previous patients--to help solve the case.

The narrator and main character of the story is a psychologist. The author is a psychologist. So, where's the psychology? Evidence reads like a typical police procedural without any real reference to psychology. I have always enjoyed Kellerman's earlier works, but his recent books have lost the psychological aspect that separated his works from the myriad other crime stories; and, unfortunately, he is not as good a writer as some other crime writers. Without his unique perspective as a psychologist, there is no real reason to read this work. Quite frankly, it was tedious and dull in style. In other words, boring. Notably, and most irritatingly, he left numerous threads unexplained. And, Kellerman's method of getting away with unanswered questions? Get rid of the villians. In the end, Evidence was a shallow story and I had hoped for better from Kellerman.

In Los Angeles Doyle is hired to watch over the Borodi property where a mansion remains empty. It is a tedious job as nothing ever occurs until he finds the corpses of a man and woman posing as if they were making love when they died. LAPD homicide cop Milo Sturgis accompanied by consulting psychologist Alex Delaware look at the crime scene. The woman remains a Jane Doe, but her companion possesses an ID in the name of Desmond Backer. The pair tracks down Des' boss Helga Gemein, the head of a disbanding architectural firm. She states that the late Becker was promiscuous; a fact backed up by his sister who says he left $50,000 in her rented storage room. They also discover that the Borodi property belongs to Prince Tariq Asman who went by the name Teddi and is the brother of the island nation Sranil. There are rumors that Teddi fled to his island home after killing a woman. The body of the Jane Doe is identified by Des' sister as her late brother's friend Darlene Fredd. When the mansion they were killed in is torched, Miles and Alex easily theorize that the homicides and arson are linked, but neither can figure out by who or what while a deadly predator watches them connecting the dots one at a time. This is one of Jonathan Kellerman's best works in the long running series as Alex narrates so that the audience sees the investigation through his filter, but Milo is actually the star. He fights the stereotypical uncooperative toads in the road (his superiors, the FBI and foreign VIPs) to obtain the information he needs to solve the case. EVIDENCE is a cerebral entertaining police procedural in which the hero's approach seems credible leading to reader satisfaction as Milo and Alex work an enthralling complex whodunit.

Alex Delaware is Jonathon Kellerman's best character. The suspense keeps coming. I love the love between him and Milo Sturgis.

One of those books you can't put down. Jonathan Kellerman's intense writing style and well written characters keep you intrigued throughout the book.

I love Alex Delaware, but the "evidence" here is a bit thin. Stock characters set the stage for the investigation, and the stereotypes are a bit lame. It's a quick read and a good story, though. Another beach read.

Alex Delaware is back in Jonathan Kellerman's new book "Evidence". But he is more like Milo Sturgis' sidekick after Milo takes on the case of a double murder in an abandoned and unfinished mansion. Tracking down the owner of the property and the connection between the dead couple seems to be the main theme of the story. Why Delaware is tagging along, as the narrator of the story? We don't get to delve into the psychology of the individuals but more into how Milo solves the case. Kellerman is a superb author and I enjoy the Delaware novels, but this was not as intense as his earlier books.

I liked the part where Milo turned down dinner with Alex and Robin because Rick wanted him to come to the hospital and have dinner there.
