I'm always a fan of the Alex Delaware series. This wasn't my favorite though still a good easy read.
Jonathan Kellerman's story of Dr. Alex Delaware's adventure on a tiny Pacific island to help an eminent scienctist organize his papers for publication. The mysterious doctor seems to feed clues to Alex and he finally discovers the shocking truth but can't stem the violence that threatens everyine on this lovely lost island.
One of the Alex Delaware series - not as good as earlier books but still pretty interesting.
Another good read from Kellerman.
An Alexander Delaware mystery. This one involves an all expense paid trip to the island of Aruk, where all hell breaks loose. A great story.
A really intelligent psychological thriller about a child psychologist, invited by a respected colleague to spend 3 months on a island paradise helping him prepare his papers for publication, only to find the doctor's compulsions possibly more disturbing & dangerous then those of his case study subjects.
A real page turner! Fast and packed with twists and plots. It may be Kellerman's best novel in my opinion. Clever plot.
Three months in paradise, all expenses paid. Its a invitation Dr. Ales Delaware can't refuse. Revered scientist Dr. Woodrow Wilson Morland has invited Alex to the tiny Pacific island of Aruk to help organize his papers. When Alex discovers the shocking truth it is to late to stem the tide of violence that threatens innonce and guilt alike on this lovely lost island.
If you have read any of Jonathan Kellerman novels, and liked them, as I have, this is just another one to enjpy.
Jonathan Kellerman's novels always satisfy. Dr. Alex Delaware can't refuse an offer for 3 months in paradise, all expenses paid. But when Alex discovers the shocking truth of paradise it is too late to stem the tide of violence that threatens innocent and guilty alike on this lovely lost island.
A 1996 and the eleventh of many Alex Delaware mysteries by Kellerman. I read this book a couple years ago, during my Jonathan Kellerman phase, I forgot most of it.
Another excellent entry in the Alex Delaware series. The ending has a couple of real surprises.
Three months in paradise, all expenses paid. It's an invitation Dr. Alex Delaware cannot refuse. Revered scientist Dr. Woodrow Wilson Moreland has invited Alex to a remote Pacific island to help him organize his papers for publication. But when Alex discovers the shocking truth, it is too late to stem the tide of violence that threatens innocent and guilty alike on this lovely lost island.
This is THE best Kellerman novel, period. Atmospheric, suspensful, and at its end is very moving. The author describes very creepy and interesting insects in the book as well. None of Kellerman's work has come close to this one in my opinion. If you like thrillers, this would be a great book for you to try.
From Amazon.com: Another gripping Alex Delaware novel from Kellerman, the king of psychological suspense and author of ten successive New York Times bestsellers. The setting is tropical but the atmosphere is sinister as Delaware probes the secrets of a wealthy scientist/philanthropist and unleashes an uncontrollable chain of violence.
Took a while to get going with the story then zipped through it once it got there.
An exciting Alex Delaware novel set on a Pacific Island.
A Johnathan Kellerman is always a good read.
I have been reading Jonathan Kellerman for quite a few years and at one time being my favorite has moved down on my list. I am still reading his books sparingly in order as I have bought most of his in the Alex Delaware series and try to mix them in with some of my other favorite authors that I read more often. The last two books this one included and Self Defense were read with some difficulty. Not that I didn't find them somewhat enjoyable, but at times the intensity and complexity can get you lost in the book. This one fits the title "The Web" as it involves Kellerman's main character Alex Delaware (phycologist/detective) and his love interest Robin, as they happily embark on what they think of as a job organizing medical files to help a fellow Dr. Woodrow Wilson Mooreland, that is loaded with fringe benefits on a paradise Island of Aruk which they see as a tropical vacation. Soon they find there is much more to this Island and the people that they are sharing it with. Trully a Web loaded with many deep characters and all of whom seem to carry personal baggage that we as readers are left to sort out. At times the book bogs down with too many unanswered questions and with too much previously mentioned baggage. Sometimes the story flows well, then at times frustrated you want answers, also at times the book slows and you wish you could just get through it. Determined I finally made it to the final page, not a quick read, but still worth it to get the answers to the mystery.
Another Dr Alex Deleware mystery thrillers ... 400 pages seemed like 50 it flew by so fast
Three months in paradise, all expenses paid. It's an invitation Alex Delaware can't refuse. Dr. Woodrow Wilson Moreland, a revered scientist and philanthropist on the tiny Pacific Island of Aruk, has invited Alex to his vast estate to help him organize his papers for publication-an easy job leaving Alex plenty of time to enjoy a romantic interlude with Robin Castagna.
Quickly, however, secretive houseguests, frightening nocturnal visitors, and the elusive Dr. Moreland himself dim the pleasures of deep blue water and white sand.
The cases Dr. Moreland chooses to share-a patient driven to madness, a man who succumbed forty years ago to radiation poisoning after a nuclear blast, a young woman brutally murdered, her mutilated body found just six months earlier-seem unconnected. Yet Alex can't help wondering what the good doctor is trying to tell him....and what Moreland's real reason for inviting him to Aruk is.
As Alex probes----with a little long-distance help from his friend LAPD detective Milo Sturgis----he comes to beleive the answer lies hidden somewhere on Aruk. Yet when he finally discovers the truth, it will be more shocking than he could have imagined.
Once again, with his brilliant characterizations and rapid-fire pace, Jonathan Kellerman has redefined the boundaries of suspense, probing real-life horrors and innermost fears in a listening experience that transfixes from first to last word.
