Killer by Jonathan Kellerman
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Kellerman is one of the best and most prolific crime thriller writers alive (and pater familias of dynasty including his wife and two of his daughters who are bestselling writers). This is the 28th in his Alex Delaware series begun way back in 1985, regular readers know what they’re getting: a snappy, fun, cleverly plotted suspense novel and new readers would be fine to start here. In Killer Delaware isn’t just catching criminals, he’s trying to evade them as he himself becomes a possible victim. There are twists but also quite a bit of exposition of the whys and wherefores rather than just the hows.

If you like Jonathan Kellerman you might also like to read books by John Rickards, John Sandford and James Patterson.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The author’s Alex Delaware thrillers have amassed a keen following, in them he has used his background as a paediatric psychologist to create a profession for his hero (who is a crack practitioner) of total verisimilitude. In the first books, Alex, though officially retired, took on cases referred to him by Milo Sturgis of the LAPD, and a recurrent theme was that of damaged children. Killer tackles somewhat different territory, but all of Kellerman’s customary command of the thriller idiom is firmly in place.

Synopsis

Killer by Jonathan Kellerman

The latest addictive thriller from No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman, the master of psychological suspense, in his acclaimed series featuring Doctor Alex Delaware. Well-used to elevated emotions, psychologist Alex Delaware shrugs off a joking death threat from beautiful Beverly Hills physician Constance Sykes, whose attempt to secure legal custody of her baby niece is thwarted by Alex's forthright report to the court. Alex plays down the threat until LAPD's Milo Sturgis rushes to his side with the shocking word on the street that a hit's been taken out on him. But while Alex may be in grave danger, it won't be from the Beverley Hills doctor, for Connie is soon discovered brutally slain. When her sister Cherie and the baby disappear, apparently on the run, Alex's search for answers leads him to aged rockers, charming homeboys and even Machiavellian judges. As the darkest of secrets are peel away, and a cruel system churns through family lives, Alex seeks to stop a vicious killer and save a child from a life of nightmares...or worse.
