Victims. Jonathan Kellerman. 2012. Unpleasant people are being killed; Milo cannot figure out a connection so he asked Alex who works with him. Milo still eats like a horse. Alex is back with Robin. Same formula as all the others. If you like the Alex Delaware novels, you’ll like this one. I bogged down in this one about midway through-good but not one of his best. I missed the one where he and Robin got back together. ( )

The murders are gruesome. Once Delaware and Sturgis piece together who the serial kicker is, the chase is on to stop him before there are more murders. This book kept me turning pages. ( )

The serial killer has a deeply disturbed past and the investigation is conducted in a sequential, traditional manner -- interview witnesses, develop sketches, delve into the background facts and dig up the next clue. The victims have been eviscerated in the most gruesome manner and the author is informative without being overly graphic. He carefully weaves the plot details in a cohesive and intricate fashion, creating the appropriate tension throughout the story. When the bodies begin to pile up, Milo’s lead detective position is threatened, bringing a little more intensity to the plot. All in all, a solid, reliable story that will please and entertain you. Enjoy! ( )

Book description
Acid-tongued Vita Berlin hadn’t a friend in the world, but whom did she cross so badly as to end up meticulously arranged in such a gruesome murder scene? One look prompts LAPD detective Milo Sturgis to summon his expert in homicidal maniacs, Alex Delaware. But even Alex is stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion—with no apparent connection among the victims. And the only clue left behind—a blank page bearing a question mark—seems to be both a menacing taunt and a chilling cry for help from a tortured, savage soul. To end the bloody spree and prevent citywide panic, Alex navigates the secretive world of mental health treatment, from the sleek office of a Beverly Hills therapist to a shuttered mental institution where he once learned his craft. As each jagged piece of the puzzle fits into place, a portrait emerges of a sinister mind at its most unimaginable—and an evil soul at its most unspeakable.

Unraveling the madness behind L.A.'s most baffling and brutal homicides is what sleuthing psychologist Alex Delaware does best. By all accounts, acid-tongued Vita Berlin hadn't a friend in the world, but whom did she cross so badly as to end up arranged in such a grotesque tableau? One look at her apartment-turned-charnel house prompts hard-bitten LAPD detective Milo Sturgis to summon his go-to expert in hunting homicidal maniacs, Alex Delaware. But despite his finely honed skills, even Alex is stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion. yet with no apparent connection among the victims. And the only clue left behind--a blank page bearing a question mark--seems to be both a menacing taunt and a cry for help from a killer baffled by his own lethal urges. Under pressure to end the bloody spree and prevent a citywide panic, Milo redoubles his efforts to discover a link between the disparate victims. Meanwhile, Alex navigates the secretive world of mental health treatment, from the sleek office of a Beverly Hills therapist to a shuttered mental institution where he once honed his craft--and where an unholy alliance between the mad and the monstrous may have been sealed in blood. As each jagged piece of the puzzle fits into place, an ever more horrific portrait emerges of a sinister mind at its most unimaginable--and an evil soul at its most unspeakable. "This one was different," Alex observes at the start of the case. This one will haunt his waking life, and his darkest dreams, long after its end… (more)
