Overview

Over the Edge (Alex Delaware Series #3) by Jonathan Kellerman

From the New York Times bestselling author, a thrilling novel in the Alex Delaware series about a psychotic teenage boy accused of six murders.

When the phone rings in the middle of the night, child psychologist Alex Delaware does not hesitate. Driving through the dream-lit San Fernando Valley, Alex rushes to Jamey Cadmus, the patient he had failed five years before—and who now calls with a bizarre cry for help. But by the time Alex reaches Canyon Oaks Psychiatric Hospital, Jamey is gone, surfacing a day later in the hands of the police, who believe Jamey is the infamous Lavender Slasher, a psychotic serial killer. Wooed by a high-powered attorney to build a defense, Alex will get a chance to do what he couldn’t five years ago. And when he peers into a family’s troubled history and Jamey’s brilliant, tormented mind, the psychologist puts himself at the heart of a high-profile case. Because Alex knows that in a realm of money, loss, and madness, something terrible pushed Jamey over the edge—or else someone is getting away with murder.

While I loved the first two books in this series, I simply liked this one. To me, the characters just felt shallower in this one or something. I felt more in tune with Alex, Milo, Robin, etc. in the first two. In this third book, I almost felt like there was an imbalance between the amount of story Kellerman wanted to tell, and how much room he had left for character development. I also felt like some of the psychology and psychiatry analysis drug out a little, at least for someone like me who's not in either field, so I got bored. Overall, I still enjoyed the book, just not as much as the first two.

I love this series. They generally get hou and you cant put the book down, not this time. Milo and Alex didnt wirk closely with each other. It went back to a time Alex taught school age children. A call for help and he is off to help.

This was my first Jonathan Kellerman book and it had me stuck to each and every page! I felt invested in each character (including the killer). I look forward to reading more of his work.

A great read. I often find mysteries predictable, but in this one I wasn't quite sure of anything. I had lots of ideas, but nothing solid. I was thrilled with the way it all came together.

I liked the part where Alex was suggesting that therapy would be good for Milo so he could work out his issues.
