Sarah Broadhurst's view...

To fans of Kellerman let me just say this is a new Alex Delaware … to newcomers, the main detection in this long-established thriller writer’s work comes from psychological analysis which adds an interesting edge to these pacy tales. This one involves plenty of red-herrings and smoke-screens before all is solved. It’s not his best so try him and then indulge in his backlist.

Comparison: Harlan Coben, Mo Hayder, Alex Kava.

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

Synopsis

Bones by Jonathan Kellerman

A woman's body is found in marshland outside LA. By the next morning the police have discovered the decaying corpses of three more women. They were all prostitutes except for the most recent victim; a classically trained pianist employed by a wealthy family, Selena Bass seems out of place in the grim tableau.

Psychologist Alex Delaware is drafted in by homicide detective Milo Sturgis to help with the case. Details of the crimes suggest a serial killer is prowling LA's gritty streets. But when a new murder deviates from the pattern, derailing a possible profile, Alex and Milo must look beyond the suspicion of madness! and consider an even more sinister mind at work.

There are no easy answers, for the darkest of drives and desires will fuel the most devious of foes.
