Motive Book Review


””



Title: Motive
Author: Jonathan Kellerman
Published: 2015, Ballantine
No. of Pages: 400
Cover Price: $28.00 Hardcover, $9.99 Paperback, $9.99 Kindle



Alex Delaware, Psychologist, and Milo Sturgis, Police Lieutenant, are back, in Motive, this time trying to solve the murder of Katherine Hennepin, a shy, quiet accountant. Another murder, this time of a wealthy woman, Ursula Corey, who was shot in the parking lot of her lawyer’s office, doesn’t seem to be connected, until they discover that a full dinner was set up at Hennepin’s crime scene, and another at the home of Ursula Corey. There are a few ongoing murders, all with dinners set up. There are several suspects, and Alex and Milo are in a quandary, since things don’t seem to add up.

Kellerman is a master when it comes to building suspense in his bestselling Alex Delaware series; this is the 30th book; most are excellent, and most readers will be able to relate to the main characters, who are interesting and likeable. Kellerman’s books are, for the most part, well-written, and Motive is no exception. Lawyers, who aren’t particularly well-liked, lead in the running for the main suspects, and there are twists and turns, as well as a surprise ending.

One of the things that stand out in Kellerman’s novels is the human side of his characters; they actually seem to care about their victims, and proceed in solving the murders with a bit of a different focus than some of the other authors who present several murders that don’t seem to matter.

All told, Motive is an excellent addition to the Alex Delaware series; it is fast-moving, the scenarios are believable, and there is enough suspense to keep readers on the edge. This novel is recommended, especially for Alex Delaware fans.

This book was purchased with personal funds and no promotion of the book was solicited by the author or publisher.
