Crime Scene (Clay Edison, #1) by Jonathan Kellerman

Into the Wild

Read Crime Scene (Clay Edison, #1) Online Free - Natural causes or foul play? That’s the question Clay Edison must answer each time he examines a body. Figuring out motives and chasing down suspects aren’t part of his beat—not until a seemingly open-and-shut case proves to be more than meets his highly trained eye.

Eccentric, reclusive Walter Rennert lies cold at the bottom of his stairs. At first glance the scene looks straightforward: a once-respected psychology professor, done in by booze and a bad heart. But his daughter Tatiana insists that her father has been murdered, and she persuades Clay to take a closer look at the grim facts of Rennert’s life.

What emerges is a history of scandal and violence, and an experiment gone horribly wrong that ended in the brutal murder of a coed. Walter Rennert, it appears, was a broken man—and maybe a marked one. And when Clay learns that a colleague of Rennert’s died in a nearly identical manner, he begins to question everything in the official record.

All the while, his relationship with Tatiana is evolving into something forbidden. The closer they grow, the more determined he becomes to catch her father’s killer—even if he has to overstep his bounds to do it.

The twisting trail Clay follows will lead him into the darkest corners of the human soul. It’s his job to listen to the tales the dead tell. But this time, he’s part of a story that makes his blood run cold.

In another joint effort, Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman seek to hit the reset button after a miserable writing venture about monsters and other such inane topics. After taking a breather, this piece allows their true colours to shine through, crafting a superior series debut novel. Clay Edison has...

2.5 rounded up to be nice Years ago I was a devoted Jonathan Kellerman fan and even read some of his wife's books. Kellerman has a way with prose that is so easy, flowing and gentle that you simply go merrily along from beginning to end. Which, unfortunately, was my problem. I like a bit of a chal...

Gosh that Jonathan Kellerman fella sure can write. I can tell from all of the awards he has won over the years. Seriously now, wife Faye Kellerman is also an outstanding writer, so son Jesse has some serious writing chops in his background. Jonathan and Jesse have teamed up to write the first in...

If the name Kellerman is on it, it's a pretty sure bet I'll like it. Over many years, I've devoured just about every book by Jonathan, his wife Faye, and their son Jesse. I've also learned, though, that collaborations don't always live up to their hype, and sometimes the first book in a series fa...

This book was VERY different from the usual Kellerman books. It was really a story about going above and beyond the call of duty for no other reason but it being the right reason. Deputy coroner Clay Edison was a charmer that I could clearly visualize from the words written about him. I hope this...
