Mystery (Alex Delaware Series #26) by Jonathan Kellerman

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Victims.

The closing of the grand old Fauborg Hotel in Beverly Hills is a sad occasion for longtime patrons Alex Delaware and Robin Castagna, who go there one last time for cocktails. But even more poignant—and curious—is a striking young woman in elegant attire and dark glasses, alone there and waiting in vain. Two days later, police detective Milo Sturgis comes seeking his psychologist comrade’s insights about a grisly homicide. To Alex’s shock, the brutalized victim is the same beautiful woman whose lonely hours sipping champagne at the Fauborg may have been her last. But when a sordid revelation finally cracks the case open, the secrets that spill out could make Alex and Milo’s best efforts to close this crime not just impossible but fatal.

For those checking reviews before buying......I have to assume that the folks who rated this book so poorly must not be fans of Kellermans body of work. Those of us who follow the relationship between Milo, Alex, Robin and Rick will be happily looking in on old friends; including Blanche and the ever present koy. Enjoy!

LAPD Homicide Lieutenant Milo Sturgis asks psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware to look at a shotgun victim whose face was blown away. Alex is shocked not by what he sees as he has been privy to humanity's cruelty, but who he sees. He recognizes the young female as someone he and his wife Robin saw last night at a restaurant bar with a nasty looking male with her. The cop receives an anonymous tip about an online service that matches "sugar daddies" with "star-quality sweeties." Apparently, the "daddy" to the victim "Mystery" was affluent Markham McReynolds. Besides him, his family fills up the suspect list as his wife, two adult sons and their spouses have motives and the sextet is known for out of control behavior. The latest Delaware-Sturgis collaborative police procedural (see Evidence and Deception) is a fun buddy tale as the cop and the doc work the mean streets of Los Angeles. The story line is fast-paced but has a breezy feel due to the teasing barbs between the lead pair. Readers who appreciate a straightforward urban whodunit will want to join Sturgis and Delaware as they tease each other while following clues that lead to where the affluent can buy and do anything with immunity.

I enjoy Kellerman's "Alex Deleware Series" and this was another good one. I like it when i cant figure it out right away. If you like murder mysteries then you will enjoy Kellerman's books and especially this serires. I could do with out all the directions and California GPS but it is esay to skim through.

I found the story boring. The humor seemed forced and the story uninteresting

Have always enjoyed Kellerman's books. They are good mysteries and move along smoothly through the transitions of plot development that generally end in a surprise conclusion. It is nice to have main characters that flow across the series (better than soap operas or reality shows) and he is very good at describing the supporting characters so the reader gets a good visual image. I also enjoy the way he develops the personalities of the preps.

The Alex Delaware has always kept my interest. Kellerman is an excellent writer and his stories are intricate and sometimes suspenseful. Makes for good reading.

I've been a fan of the Alex Delaware Novels for years, and Jonathan Kellerman, has always been one of my favorite authors to read. This one did not disappoint, I read it within 2 days and found it just as intriguing as the rest in this series. I love good series because I get involved with the characters, and it's nice to be able to continue to enjoy Alex, Milo, Robin and Blanche.. The mystery was well done, and the who done it left me wondering until almost the end. Can't wait for the next in the series.

I liked the part where Milo came to brief Alex on the case and started eating as soon as he got in the door. I also liked the part where Milo was having truffle oil on his eggs.
