Another of Kellerman's "Alex Deleware" novels, this book is fast paced, fun to read and has a GREAT story! I couldn't put it down, as the story brought you from the very rich to the very poor of L.A., from the academic halls of a local college to the inner circles of L.A.'s "serect" worlds. Very good read, and as always an ending you won't soon forget!

This is a great Kellerman/Delaware book. Kellerman reaches sometimes for convoluted plot lines, but manages to bring them all together in the end. I am a fan!

I thought I'd really love this book since Alex Delaware is a psychologist and I'm a mental health therapist. I love psychological suspense stories but don't like at all the kind of mysteries where questions are asked of those who knew the victim which leads to conjecture which leads to more questions asked, which leads to....well, you get my point. I did like the main character Alex and his cop partner, Milo. However, the victim, when she was alive, came across as a money hungry, very cold woman so it was hard to empathize with her as well as Alex's obsession to finding her killer. There were lots of enjoyable twists in this book and the ending took me somewhat by surprise.

A good Alex Delaware read - better than most. A young girl is murdered, and when her mother requests Alex's help to unravel the mystery, he can't turn her away. The girl was a former patient and a straight-A student, along with being a high priced call girl on the side. So Alex and his reliable pal Milo dive into the world of L.A.'s not so shiny side, investigating her death and finding correlations to the disappearance of a UCLA co-ed. Compared to some of his works, I found this Delaware novel to be very quick paced and entertaining to read.

3 stars. Flesh and Blood was a good read, however not as captivating as most of Kellerman's books I've read. I found it very easy to put down after a few chapters, where normally I have to force myself to stop reading!

This is an ok mystery. The characters that Alex Delaware meets are interesting. However, I've read suspense that is way more exciting, and edge of your seat nail biting than this.

I did not like this book until it got almost halfway through. Alex Delaware, psychiatrist turned detective, is like a pitbull. He has two consultations with Lauren Teague and then a chance encounter (she's now a stripper) and he's all up in her business. When she turns up missing, he's the one to get the cops moving. The cop in question, is his friend and honestly Alex does more detecting than the cop does. I liked Alex but I just didn't feel anything for the missing Lauren, she had a serious attitude problem and didn't care about anyone but herself.

As the story plays out, with suspect after suspect and Alex's theory after theory, you get a feel for her state of mind and why she is like she is and does what she does. The ending is great and I really didn't see it coming. Oh I figured Alex would get into a tight spot just not who was holding the gun.

I just recently started reading the Alex Delaware series from near the beginning. Alex and Milo are two of my favorite characters.Since I live in the area Kellerman writes about it is that much more interesting. This tale of troubled teens and a seamy back story is one of my favorites.
