The jonaghan reason I read it was because I thought it might cure my insomnia it didn’t. Yes, of course they will. To us, the series has run its course. Is it a woman? When this series began I read every book as soon as it came out.
Compulsion (Alex Delaware, #22) by Jonathan Kellerman
The book is a far-fetched, fast-paced typical murder mystery, written as many of these stories are, in a straightforward, inelegant style that makes for an easy read, apparently the type of book that seems to sell nowadays. I’d appreciate it if you take a peek. It was a passing detail in ksllerman story — not even a place where one of the characters was from — but still, I kellerman, because the compact between reader and writer is essentially one of trust: While Milo johathan se is one of the more interesting police characters to come along over the last couple of decades, and while the original premise of Delaware’s involvement was novel, there’s virtually nothing left to excite or entertain us.
I finally finished the audiobook.
Book review: Jonathan Kellerman’s *Compulsion: An Alex Delaware Novel*
This wasn’t a super memorable book. I don’t know why I keep reading them; god knows I don’t expect anything different.
I was expecting more insight and emotion from Alex Delaware in this latest book in the series, but I did not really understand the underlying motivation of the identified suspect. A tipsy young woman seeking aid on a desolate highway disappears into the inky black night.
The books are getting more formulaic as the series continues. Yours, I buy in hardback. INJonathan was asked by the hospital to conduct research into the psychological effects of extreme isolation plastic bubble units on children with cancer, and to coordinate care for these kids and their families. Enough turns and twists to keep the pages turning, but not enough to create the edge of prior books in this series. It makes for a clipped dialogue that almost get annoying. Both characters are psychologists and loosely attached to law enforcement.
However, both stories were compelling and enjoyable. Followup showed the missing girl frequently left for extended visits to exotic spots with little or no notice.
A suspect in luxury vehicles is murdering people who seem to be unconnected. She is very much secondary to the story, and the conversations between the two of them are pretty superficial and unemotional.
Finally, a mother files a missing person complaint on her daughter. Mar 17, Joe Young rated it really liked it. Milo Eats w A fun vacation read, but not appreciably different from the other Alex and Milo books. I have read all of Patricia Cornwall’s books and some have missed the mark.
I feel like a traitor for dissing your book with only three stars. Jan 18, Beverly rated it liked it Shelves: I wish I had Goodreads when I read most of these books in high school It is an unusual pairing that works pretty well.
Nov 15, Vicki rated it it was ok. That’s why we read these books. I got really tired of the goofy similes and metaphors. Sometimes not till middle age. The story exposes many different facets.
What begins with a solitary bloodstain in a stolen sedan quickly spirals outward in odd and unexpected directions, leading Delaware and Sturgis from the well-heeled center of L. Maybe Kellerman is getting as sick of him as I am.
From the Trade Paperback edition. It was almost as if he wrote the book without her and then said, “whoops, I forgot Robin; where can I squeeze her in? But of course it’s not as one-way as that; the reader joins in, to some extent, picturing people and places and details. It’s still worth reading because it’s Alex Delaware well and Milo but this one was not the most stellar. Milo makes the theory sound incredibly off the wall.
