Ebook The Murder Book

The Murder BookHe past As Alex and Milo set out to uncover what really happened twenty years ago their every move is followed and their lives are placed in jeopardy The relentless investigation reaches deep into LA's nerve centers of power and wealth past and present While peeling back layer after layer of ugly secrets they discover that the murder of one forgotten girl has chilling ramifications that extend far beyond the tragic loss of a single lifeA classic story of good and evil sacrifice and sin The Murder Book is a gripping page turner that illuminates the darkest corridors of the human mind It is a stunning tour de forc I'm relatively new to Jonathan Kellerman in fact this is only the second or third of his Alex Delaware novels that I have read Looking through some of the reviews of this 16th instalment in the series prior to reading it this may well have been to my advantage Unlike some of the other reviewers I was able to approach this with a relatively open mind and I think I probably enjoyed the story because of thisThe story revolves around a historic unsolved case from the past of detective Milo Sturgis one that is brought back into the light following the arrival of a 'Murder Book' at the home of Alex Delaware The book is made up of a series of graphic crime scene photographs All of historic cases but arranged to highlight the one unsolved case; that of a young girl brutally tortured murdered and arranged out in the open above LA Through this story we finally get a bit of solid back story for Milo fleshing out his character nicely and providing some insight into events from other novels in the series In their attempts to discover exactly what had happened Milo and Alex uncover a conspiracy that reaches all the way through the LA political and corporate world I really enjoyed the complicated storyline drawing in so many different threads to form a coherent whole The mystery itself was well written and very interestingI did have a few issues though Having the story unfold through dual narratives was a great idea Milo and Alex each had something important to offer to the story and to the reader's appreciation of the finer details Unfortunately though there were times when following who's narrative I was reading was pretty difficult I had to go back and double check a fair few times being charitable I will admit that I was largely reading this uite late at night but I don't usually struggle to follow narrative threads this much Another thing that grated a little was the constant references to Milo's sexuality; I think we all get the point that Milo is a homosexual cop working in a prejudiced department however it did feel as though this fact was brought up in practically every mention of him I'd hope that the character could be rounded than this would suggest Surely there is to the guy than his sexuality? There are moments where it seems as though we will get such as the flashback scenes at the start; but then these come to littleMy final and by far the biggest issue I have with the novel is how neatly everything falls into place coupled with the lack of conseuences for any of the major characters To start with we have to initial murder which has conseuences for the people directly involved but which could apparently be totally removed from the public and private record I appreciate that the crux of the story here is the conspiracy but still it strikes me as a little unlikely that such a total whitewash would have ever been possible Eually incredible is the fact that the total bloodbath that occurs as a climax to the story is able to be tidied up and dealt with without any involvement of any authorities We are led to believe that numerous corpses have been uietly buried or left tied up in smouldering buildings and yet neither Milo nor Alex need to discuss this with any form of police force? This strikes me as maybe stretching reality a little too farTo sum up this is a very enjoyable thriller with an entertaining crime story and some good character building just don't expect too much from it because it does reuire some suspension of disbelief in order to hold together However I'll certainly be looking out some Delaware novels in the future
