Victims [Kellerman]

Book: Victims [Alex Delaware #27]
Author: Jonathan Kellerman

Review: Vita Berlin is a nasty, mean woman without any friends. She is found murdered in a very gruesome manner with one clue, a single sheet of paper with a question mark on it. LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis engages psychologist Alex Delaware for assistance. When more people are killed in a similar manner, Delaware and Sturis research mental health institutions and Delaware tries to determine how this killer's mind was shaped.

This is my first Kellerman novel and I really enjoyed the psychological element of the murders and investigation. The odd thing about this book was that it was written in first person narrative but I never felt like I was really "in" Alex Delaware's mind. The ending was slightly anticlimactic but I will definitely read some other books in this series. 

Grade: 3/5
