Review by Fantasma
I'm not sure of what I think about this book. It's not a Kellerman "usual", as it didn't have his main character, Alex Delaware , and I'm really used to him :)At first I was a bit annoyed by the book, I couldn't relate to any of the characters and didn't really liked any of them, and it all seemed useless and senseless, it was boring. Then, by the middle of it, I started to enjoy the book more, grew more interested in the story and in what would happen next.I still believe it lacks... something. But it's an enjoyable and quick read.
Review by Carl_Alves
Jonathan Kellerman takes a break from his usual Alex Delaware novels with this entry. The main protagonist is Jeremy Carrier, a psychologist at a hospital, who is recovering from the brutal murder of his wife. He befriends Dr. Arthur Chess, an older doctor and his group of elderly friends who have a private group that are interested in investigating crime and studying evil. Meanwhile, Jeremy is receiving messages that are clues about his wife’s killer as well as other murders that have plagued the area.This was not up to par with other Jonathan Kellerman novels that I have read. Plot holes abound in this novel, almost to the point of ridiculousness. The story line was not especially believable, and the characters left much to be desired. I wasn’t remotely impressed with this novel and I would advise skipping it.Carl Alves – author of Blood Street
