Was a mediocre attempt compared with many other Alex Delaware novelsAlex and Robin Watch A Beautiful watch a beautiful gracious lady with British accent being stood up at a restaurant They also encounter a body guard thug with a gun outside waiting The very next day Sergeant Milo Sturgis shows them ics of the very same girl dead and sprawled out with guns shot wounds They set out to ID her and seek out her killer sAnd they encounter many strange ersons and "HIDDEN SECRETS ON THE WAY THE INITIAL HALF WAS "secrets on the way The initial half was captivating but the story soon slid into boredom and mayhemOverall a readable book but nothing to gawp about I am a bit of a novice with Alex Delaware so I am not sure if he and his girlfriend Robin have aged chronological It s still an okay read for most murder mysteries It s just disappointing for an author of his calibre and experience I expect fussy detail from Kellerman but the descriptions of Over Mintmarks and Hot Repunched Mintmarks people andlaces went on ad nauseum It was over the top mind numbingly boring Who cares about a minor character s yellow toenails Especially after a microscopic focus on every other art of his anatomy when we ll never see him again Every single detail of every single character we encountered in this book was itemized massaged drawn out and described in minute detail I listened to this book on CD and found my mind wandering many times Descriptions started to feel like nothing than filler Where was the lot It was wedged inserted slipped filed One Day in December paper thin between THE DESCRIPTION As if that wasn t enough the snarky forced humor felt hackneyed and weirdly homongenous as if each character with the exception of the superior and oh so restrained Dr Delaware were all morphing into one another and at the same time vying for attention and one upmanship I thought Jonathan Kellerman was too consumate arofessional to stoop to Alamo Story: From Early History to Current Conflicts phoning it in but apparently I was wrong I won t give up on him just yet I ve always enjoyed Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis but if the next one is as flimsy and arrogant I will not hesitate to relegate him to the ranks of the former favourites along with James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell So I was boarding alane last week and saw that someone had laced this book on top of a trash can right outside the door to the lane What a brilliant idea to leave a book for a fellow traveler And since I like to read Alex Delaware stories and didn t remember reading this one I took it It was especially good replete with old Hollywood references twins and a twist I didn t see coming But Isabel de Solis, Soraya: Un Cuento de Amor En La Alhambra perhaps my enjoyment was enhanced by getting it the way I did So if you see a book by the entrance to alane some day it might just be from me On.
