As always, a trusted and enjoyable read!!
This one was heavy on the treatment of gays, which is something I haven't noticed in the previous books of his I've read and something I found interesting. In no way complaining!!

This was a great summer read ... nothing gory or heavy. Just enjoyable! Well, as enjoyable as a murder mystery can be :-)

Flesh and Blood Jonathan Kellerman
3.5 stars

This is a book in the Alex Delaware series of psychological thrillers, the storyline relates to an old patient of Alex's who has gone missing. After being contacted by her mother years after they last met Alex is drawn into a world of hookers and the sex trade. What makes solving the disappearance harder is that no one is telling the truth.

I really enjoyed this addition to the Delaware novels it moved at a good pace and the story was interesting enough to hook me into reading it in 2 days. Lightweight fun reading for when you need something you don't have to think too hard about. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 034541389X, Mass Market Paperback)

Psychologist Alex Delaware hasn't been in private practice for a long time, but when the mother of a former patient calls and asks for his help, he can't turn her down. He couldn't help Lauren Teague when she was alive, but something about his failure with the beautiful, sullen teenager who grew up to be a high-priced call girl won't let him walk away after her bullet-ridden body turns up in an L.A. dumpster. When she wasn't turning tricks, she was a straight-A student; despite his detective pal Milo's demurral, Alex is convinced there's a connection between Lauren's death and another beautiful UCLA psych major who disappeared a year earlier. With his customary skill and compassion, Jonathan Kellerman draws us deep into Lauren's complicated life, from a university campus to a Malibu estate owned by a wealthy publisher of soft-core porn (who bears a distinct resemblance to the pajama-clad mogul who made a small white bunny famous).

Kellerman's last couple of books have been a bit disappointing, but here the bestselling author is writing up to the high standard he set in his earlier ones. With solid plotting, well-realized characterizations, and a strong narrative drive, Flesh and Blood delivers the real goods on every page. --Jane Adams
