I've been critical of several of the recent books in this series because many of them have not involved Alex Delaware's role as a psychologist in any significant way The stories have almost always featured a murder case which is assigned to Delaware's friend Detective Milo Sturgis Sturgis then calls Delaware and says in effect I just got assigned a really cool murder case Would you like to tag along and help me investigate itThat premise is of course not remotely believable No police homicide detective would so casually invite a civilian to play a critical role in a murder investigation and while the author has stretched to find some plausible reason for Delaware to be involved in these cases I've never been able to buy into the idea and thus have been disappointed in many of the recent entriesHappily this book reverts to the origins of the series where the critical role is played by Delaware as a child psychologist and Sturgis is along to assist him The book opens when a former television actress named Zelda Chase turns up crazed and living on the streets Checking her history a social worker of sorts discovers that five years earlier Delaware had treated the actress's five year old son Ovid She thus calls Delaware and asks him to check out the womanDelaware is tempted to beg off The woman was never his patient and he has no relationship to her He is concerned though about the boy he treated and who seems to have dropped off the face of the earth Accordingly he agrees to meet with Chase in the hope of finding out where her son might be and ensuring his safetyBefore long though Chase turns up dead apparently of natural causes but under mysterious circumstances Delaware thus recruits Sturgis to help him investigate in the hope of tracking down young Ovid One thing leads to another; people will die and this will turn out to be a very complex case It mostly involves Delaware with Milo's assistance tracking people down and interviewing them There's not a great deal of tension in the book but it is an interesting puzzle with a great conclusion All in all then a significant improvement over some of the later books in this long running series

Did Jonathan Kellerman start two different novels – one about Alex Delaware’s search for an eleven year old he had treated years before and the other the search for a mentally ill aspiring actress with little talent and her murderer – and then shuffled them togetherThat’s the way it seems to meThe first part of the book is something of a flashback to the time Alex Delaware treated the boy – but most of this is the search for the killer of the mentally ill would be actress with little or nor mention of the search for the boyBecause of this this book seems overly long – stretched out – and needs a good editor to do some smart work and help decide which book it isit doesn’t fit together comfortably as it is

Breakdown the 31st book in Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware Series featuring psychologist Alex Delaware and Detective Milo Sturgis solving crimes together in LA is not a bad addition to this series which I have read most if not all of the booksbut then it’s not exactly one of those “wow” ones eitherI suppose it’s pretty hard for a writer to keep things fresh after writing about the same characters and settings for such a long time and over so many books And this is one of the things I have found in the last few books in this series I have come to know the characters so well that I know exactly what they will do nexthow they will react to a situationhow much character development can be done after 30 books I miss the interaction between Delaware and Sturgis that existed in the beginning The plot is good and well written even when I thought the whole family secrets mystery a bit bizarreIf you are a fan of this series then you will enjoy this one
