Tuesday Book Reviews


Five-star review of Killer by Jonathan Kellerman

 I was reminded of why I enjoy Kellerman’s books so much. The characters are clearly drawn, the plots are complex and intriguing and the endings are satisfying. The story starts with the court fight between Ree, the mother of Rambla, and her richer sister over custody of the little girl. On the surface, Connie, a rich doctor, would appear to be poised to give the toddler a good life, but when Alex Delaware is called in to evaluate the two sisters, he finds her cold and aloof, while Ree, a free spirit, is motherly and compassionate. Then, the first twist occurs when Connie is murdered and Ree and Rambla disappear. Along with detective Milo Sturgis, Alex delves into the sisters’ backgrounds for clues. If you haven’t tried Mr. Kellerman’s books, this is a good one to start with.
