True Detectives

Bound by blood but divided by troubles as old as Cain and Abel, Moses Reed and Aaron Fox are sons of the same strong-willed mother, and their respective fathers were cops, partners, and friends.

This book was a little difficult to get started, but once you read through the first chapter or two, the flow moves a lot faster. It was intriguing, the kind that you think about between readings, which felt that it was good at capturing the reader's attention. Parts moved quickly, but it seemed that there were some rough spots that were a bit more tedious. Good book for light reading.

Kellerman comes up with another good one adding two more characters to his stable. Moses Reed and Aaron Fox share a mother and their fathers were both cops. Moe is a detective and Aaron is a private eye. The two brothers find themselves working on the same case. A beautiful girl has disappeared and as the two brothers who do not always see eye to eye begin to work to solve the mystery they find themselves digging into the sinister and seamy underside of Los Angles. There is a fascinating cast of characters, a Mel Gibsonesque producer, his thuggish son, a tormented movie star, a powerful Russian businessman and a handful of druggies and hookers. The story moves along nicely and some of Kellerman's other familiar faces make appearances. An interesting read as usual with Kellerman.

An excellent Jonathan Kellerman novel, featuring characters Moses Reed and Aaron Fox, introduced in the Alex Delaware novel BONES. Police homicide detective Moses Reed and former police detective turned private detective Aaron Fox couldn't be more different. They are half brothers carrying a lot of past bitterness. And they find themselves working the same case. A long hard climb toward grudging mutual respect comes painfully as they work the case from different directions. Two young women who appear to have been murdered may have rubbed elbows with a Hollywood celebrity with fatal results. This is a good read, with enjoyable characters.

I waited so long to get this book and I'm glad I didn't buy it--I could not stick with it after 150 pages, the characters were so confusing it was hard to keep up with it and I lost interest quickly.

This is a fun detective story about 2 brothers. One is a police detective , the other a private eye.
Though their personalities are wide apart , they must get together on a case they both find themselves working on.
Many interesting characters. A good story. Fun read.
