Read Killer (Alex Delaware, #29) Online Free - NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
After thirty-five riveting, internationally acclaimed novels of psychological suspense, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman returns with his most stunning thriller to date. Killer is a mesmerizing L.A. noir portrayal of the darkest impulses of human nature carried to shocking extremes.
The City of Angels has more than its share of psychopaths, and no one recognizes that more acutely than the brilliant psychologist and police consultant Dr. Alex Delaware. Despite that, Constance Sykes, a sophisticated, successful physician, hardly seems like someone Alex needs to fear. Then, at the behest of the court, he becomes embroiled in a bizarre child custody dispute initiated by Connie against her sister and begins to realize that there is much about the siblings he has failed to comprehend. And when the court battle between the Sykes sisters erupts into cold, calculating murder and a rapidly growing number of victims, Alex knows he’s been snared in a toxic web of pathology.
Nothing would please Alex more than to be free of the ugly spectacle known as Sykes v. Sykes. But then the little girl at the center of the vicious dispute disappears and Alex knows he must work with longtime friend Detective Milo Sturgis, braving an obstacle course of Hollywood washouts, gangbangers, and self-serving jurists in order to save an innocent life.
Killer is Kellerman—and Delaware—at their finest.

I have been reading Alex Delaware & Milos Sturgis LA adventures since the first book came out years ago and really liked them until the last two or three books..........which have so not done it for me.
Okay, so this is the 29th novel in the series and...

Kellerman's more recent books have been disappointing, but his current effort lives up to the very best of his impressive earlier novels. An engrossing, fun, read.
Yes I am a fan, and yes I have read all of his books.
The early chapter where Kellerman introduces his recurring character, and alter...

In a day when quite a few big-time authors who shall remain nameless are becoming known for quantity rather than quality, it's refreshing to find one who's steady as he goes. Yes, folks, Jonathan Kellerman, who's written more than 30 psychological thrillers including the popular Alex Delaware ser...

When you like a writer and have been reading his books forever, it is hard to admit he has lost his luster. Nothing is really wrong about Killer but nothing is really right either. His stern righteousness is a new trait in Alex Delaware which doesn't fit with the psychiatrist we have grown to lov...

I thought that this book was garbage,the premise of the story is just ridiculous.
A woman who is involved in a child custody battle looses and just decides she is going to kill him. A former patient that he treated who is now one of LA top gang banger murderers alerts him to the co...

This is certainly the last Kellerman I'll ever buy, and maybe the last one I'll read. His dialogue has gone beyond bad to ridiculous. It's like he's writing normal dialogue in English, sending it through a really cheap translation app, turning it into, I dunno, Korean, and then translating it bac...

Psychologist and part time police consultant, Dr Alex Delaware had been requested by the courts to handle some “difficult” cases, so after initially saying he didn’t want the extra work, he was persuaded by a hard working judge to agree. The cases were not too difficult, and his paperwork general...

ARC for review.
Kellerman has largely escaped the malady that has overcome once good, now horrendous series as they reach 20+ books (the Alex Cross and Kay Scarpetta novels have become nearly unendurable). Though Kellerman's Alex Delaware (the psychologist who spends most of his time working with...

I've read quite a few Kellerman novels and have loved every one. Alex Delaware is one of my favorite fictional characters; most of the Kellerman novels I've read have had him in them.
I don't review many books, but this one hit a nerve and I'm still reeling from it. Kellerman writes great novels;...
