Monster Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Monster

Absolutely exhausting! A mind tangling novel that places you smack dab in the center of an insane think you're lost and half crazed, yourself! Soon, however, things start to make sense, but not much. You realize there's a killer in the midst and he's about as sadistic and heartless as Jack the ripper. He takes his quests to a more modern level, using video recordings. Dr. Delaware is again paired with detective pal, Milo Sturgis. It's fit for the big screen with fast paced action that includes car chases and constant psychological twists and turns. What else would we want and expect from Kellerman??

The review of this Book prepared by Newsgirl

This is a very clever, nearly-supernatural story of murder and delusion. Vintage Kellerman, with his protaganist Alex Delaware at the forefront yet again!
