Author Kellerman's Book Reviews

A Cold Heart
Alex Delaware, by his friendship with Milo, the homicide detective, is drawn into exploring and finding a serial murderer who is killing creative artists who are about to make a comeback. A sub-plot is Alex's breakup with Robin and his beginnings of a relationship with Allison, another psychiatrist we met in an earlier book. I actually found this book more interesting than the last few Kellerman "Alex Delaware" series. Breaking up with the ever prese...
Bad Love
When psychologist Alex Delaware receives a strange tape recording in the mail, he's reminded of a murder that took place in a health clinic.

"Bad love" the words quoted in a child-like voice, repeated throughout the recording. Alex calls his pal, Detective Milo Sturgis, and soon they're hunting a dangerous killer who is ...

Milo Sturgis are on the case. Delaware, however, is faced with a conflict of interest: one of his patients is the daughter of Mate's final "traveler." As th...
