  • In this Delaware mystery, number 13, a mentally ill monster is killing people Maybe Alex Delaware, my favorite fictional psychologist and amateur detective superhero, is called in when bodies are found horribly mutilated, obviously the work of a deranged killer Because Alex cares and has the time and credentials, he helps Milo Sturgis, one of my favorite fictional professional detectives, gain access to a hospital prison, where various types of mentally ill live The evidence shows that an inmate [...]

  • This is my first Jonathan Kellerman book He has been on my TBR list for some time but I was slow to get to him because I am reading so many other series I am in the midst of Andrew Vachss, Sara Paretsky, Loren Estleman, Michael Connolly, Scott Turow, Karin Slaughter, George Pelecanos and probably a few that I am not remembering right now.Monster is the thirteenth book in the twenty eight book Alex Delaware series that began in 1981 and is still ongoing I am starting in the middle with the first [...]

  • Always a fan of Mr Kellerman, Monster does not disappoint I found this to be an intricately woven mystery with plenty of new and colorful characters to enrich the tantalizing plot but not so many that a separate spreadsheet would be necessary to keep up This story features the sweet and smart Alex Delaware and his pal, the mighty Milo The story allows the reader to solve the mystery along with the characters, meaning the story line stuck in my head like an annoying jingle I HAD to know if I was [...]

  • This is the second time I ve read this book I picked it up at the ESL book sale and got to the second chapter before realizing I d already read it However, since I didn t remember the ending, I decided to read it again and found it very enjoyableat is if you like rather gory subject matter I always enjoy the Alex Delaware books He and Milo make a great pair of investigator I also like seeing what is happening in Alex s girlfriend, Robin, life If you haven t read any of them, try one, you might e [...]

  • Overall, this was a good story The plot is clever and interesting But I feel that the book itself could have used a good edit or a different editor First, the writing itself felt like Kellerman was interested in reaching a word count instead of telling his story I like descriptiveness as much as the next person, but it felt overboard much of the time Exacting descriptions of what a person is wearing or exactly what roads are being taken and buildings are being passed during a drive gets old and [...]

  • Wished I d skipped this oneI did not find this Delaware story interesting Too matter of fact Interesting idea, but no motive for the murders left me wanting I know in life sometimes things work that way, but it doesn t have to in books.

  • Oka female psychologist in her thirties tires of her career in academia and chooses to work in a forensic institution east of Los Angeles About six months into her job she turns up dead Seriously, this is the plot I kid you not Meanwhile I m still reading and working.

  • Meh I usually like Jonathan Kellerman books but I had a hard time getting into this one I kept wanting it to endd then it did.

  • Hey look, I read this out of order Surprise I ve had this book for over 17 years I know this because the bookplate in the front has my old address I had a strange feeling of deja vu when I read this but I also don t think I ve read this before Ardis Peake is a mad man and his killings were what sounded familiar Anywho, Dr Delaware is back again helping solve a series of strange murders that, on the surface, don t really look related But somehow, things tie back to Peake, locked up in Starkweathe [...]

  • Monster is the third Kellerman novel I ve read and with every book read,I like his writing even I picked up this book at a bargain at a second hand store as i don t normally buy my copies of thrillers and borrow them from libraries.Faintly reminiscent of The silence of the lambs and of ,Hannibal Lecter, I found the book spine chilling and gripping.The pace is not really high adrenaline inducing,but Alex Delaware and his LAPD buddy Milo chip away industriously at uncertainty to make sense of ma [...]

  • I found this book to be a creative individual story however, I also thought that it was drug out longer than it needed to be Jonathan Kellerman keeps his reader involved throughout the first half of the story, but in the second half I felt like he was filling pages and not making very much progress in the story line I thought that he was repeating a lot, and spending too much time explaining how the characters felt about something and not enough with what actually was happening Even though I did [...]

  • This book a little hard for me got into at first I struggled through about the first 100 or so pages, but I stuck with it because I knew from what I had gotten through that this book had the potential to be really good The plot is a great story.Once I got through that section of the book it really started moving The story is compelling I enjoyed it.So, I give it a three, only because it was so hard at the beginning I read these books out of order This was actually the 13th in a series and I just [...]

  • Really good in fact one of my favourites so far.It kept me guessing and I really liked the characterizations.The story is gripping due to the difficulty in understanding how and why everything is happening.Involving the death of an actor as well as a psychiatrist who apparently had no connection, the trail leads back to a historical slaughter and to a maximum security asylum.I read it out of order, so cringe when I read the relations between Alex and Robin, but like the suspense of this twisted [...]

  • Sometimes you just need read a really good, twisty crime novel This is a good one to pick up, if you do I found it original and interesting The only drawback to the book that I found was that the ending lags quite a bit I m sure that Kellerman thought he would up the suspense by describing every single rock and shrub and star and breeze during the final scenes, but it had the reverse effect on me and I just got profoundly bored Despite that, I enjoyed the book as a whole.

  • I picked this book up on the basis of the synopsis, having forgotten to take my book on holiday Hadn t read any of Kellerman s books beforehand, but will definitely be seeking out especially in the Alex Delaware series A clever thriller with several plot twists, I recommend this to anyone who likes detective thrillers.

  • I would normally say that I m not a fan of thrillers Clearly the fact that I m on book 13 of a 30 books series means I enjoy it The best part if Kellerman s descriptions of his main characters driving around Los Angeles It s crazy how much things have changed Parts of the city they describe as gritty are high end now

  • Two similar murders lead Alex Milo to a mental institution where an inmate who was locked up during the murders seems to have some intel on the possibility of future murders Secrets and manipulations of vulnerable people are discovered, in this lack luster thriller.

  • As always with Kellerman, well written, quick, suspenseful, and with twists that I didn t precisely figure out before they were revealed, so altogether a good, enjoyable read 3 stars just mean that, though I really enjoyed the book, it s not great literature.

  • I really enjoyed this book I was a bit disappointed in the first book I read by Jonathan Delaware, Compulsion, but I really liked this one It sucked you in right away and I like books like that It was never boring.

  • There s a place deeper than realistic It s called real A new genre author as expert witness, and dynamite as both.

  • How much violence was fear catapulted back at the world Was all viciousness cowardice at the root It s been a while I ve read a good murder mystery that isn t super confusing or hard to keep track of Monster starts off with a gruesome murder and keeps you engaged throughout the book It combines a few of my favourite murder mystery elements psychopaths in mental hospitals, dismembered bodies, and characters both living and the murdered ones who keep getting interesting with each turn of the page [...]

  • Two people have been brutally murdered, one a psychologist at a mental facility Detective Milo Sturgis is given the case and asks Alex Delaware to help There doesn t seem to be a link between the two victims but and they are lead to believe that the link lies at the mental facility As they investigate Milo and Alex find and links to the brutal murder of a family several years ago and there is a similar murder in the psychologist victim s family history too Can they find who is responsible be [...]

  • Undecided between and at these times you wish there was a 3 and a 1 2 stars I am rating it three since I feel that the author could have developed the plot in a better way The plot in itself is a great idea Good book to develop in a movie as well I seem to stumble upon such texts lately.

  • Another Jonathan Kellerman MasterpieceWow , I really enjoyed this book and I love the dialogue that Jonathan Kellerman gives to Milo and Alex and their theories Great story with plenty of excitement and unexpected twists and turns 5 Stars all the way.
