Believe it or not, Unnatural History is the 38th installment of the Alex Delaware series of novels by Jonathan Kellerman. In this novel, an employee of a wealthy photographer arrives at work and finds her employer dead. Her employer had received media attention for his photographs of homeless people in their “dream” scenarios. Milo Sturgis is called in, and he calls in his friend Alex Delaware to help him solve the case. Most of those who might know something aren’t cooperating, and Sturgis and Delaware are having a difficult time following up leads.
Jonathan Kellerman has established himself as an excellent storyteller; he has a way of weaving stories and keeping readers on the edges of their seats. He is able to create ups and downs and unexpected scenarios to build suspense, which, in this novel, starts at the beginning and builds throughout the entire novel. Sturgis and Delaware are excellent protagonists. Readers of the previous books know their history and appreciate their skills. The supporting characters are well-developed and blend well with the familiar characters. Even those readers who aren’t familiar with the series can read the book as a standalone novel.
While this may not be the best in the series, it will keep the interest of readers and keep them on the edge. The suspense is palpable, and the storyline is one that will keep readers’ interest.
