Jonathan Kellerman Message Board

I just read Therapy. I was totally amazed at one of the cities Jonathan mentioned towards the back of the book. When the detective is talking to Christie's brother, he asks where they are from and the brother says "Baudette MN." I live in Baudette, and its a very small town in the very northern part of Minnesota. I was just curisous to know if anyone knew of how Jonathan researches his books before he writes them. I mean, how do you just pick a small city and write in such detail about it if you hadnt been there?

Read them in order of publication (list at the beginning of each book) so you can appreciate the growth and evolution of the writer and be able to follow Alex's references to previous cases and love life with Robin (now, unfortunately, with Allison). You can always save the non-Alex Delaware novels for later but they are also excellent. Happy reading!

Lucky me cause I just discovered this author.
Is there a preferred reading order or can I just start anywhere ?

thank you jonathan for writing a most intersting series of books. i had given up on "mysteries" and then I read one of yours that my mother-in-law didn't like. i figured that meant it was a good book! I have read all of your "old" books now. Most interesting was the Jeruselum thriller. Thanks again for stories that move like crazy and keep you thinking.

I have read all the JK and FK series books as well as the non-series stories. I am a died-in-the-wool fan and will buy and read, whether I read one again in the future (I have reread many of both series/singles often, with renewed pleasur.) I feel that I may have earned the privilege of speaking frankly about what terribly disappoints me: Allyson (Lose her, pleeze!); Robin (Oh, how I miss her and the nuances of their relationship. Bring her back into Alex's life, pleeze!); The double book(s)(I read in an interview that JK and FK enjoyed the joint effort so much that they're planning a series of them): I agree with the gentleman's comment that they are dull. Enough, already.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could help me please. How would you describe Alex Delaware's character to someone? What would you say were his most dominant character traits? If anyone could answer those questions it would be a big help to me! Thanks

So...what did everyone think about Twisted? I rather enjoyed it myself. Petra is always enjoyable, but I think Isaac is a great character with tons of Kellerman potential. Hopefully, we're not all still to worked up about the Allison/Robin dilema to read about Petra. (Just kidding.)
I agree about Double Homicide. I'm thinking they probably had that one done in a couple nights! It was just as quick a read, though. Funny how that works. That was 3 for J.K in 2004, though. I'm always happier when he's got more out for me to inhale!

This is in response to Sony's attempts (and so many others), to find the Kellerman websites. I've attempted on several occasions to direct other people to the websites of both Jonathan and Faye Kellerman. Obviously any publishing house worth its salt would have a website for two so popular authors. And their websites have in fact been up for quite some time.
However, this message board has a misguided policy that will not allow website addresses to be posted on their board (see note below whenever posting a reply). When you think about it its really ironic. AllReaders claims to be a message board in support of books and writers in order to generate comments about those books and writers so that they can then sell advertising. But strangely won't allow you to visit those same writer's websites via information from their board. Now how ludicrous is that? They don't mind benefiting from the labors of these writers, as long as we don't actually make an effort to get too close to them. As long as they are the only conduit. Sheesh!
Anyway, suffice it to say that both Jonathan and Faye have official websites. The problem is, if I tried to post that website address here so that you could use it, AllReader's website monitoring software (AKA: BigBrother) will not allow the message to be posted.
So you can try this. It seems that the website monitoring software looks for the three most familiar acronyms for:
World Wide Web,
Hyper Text Transfer Protocol and "dotcom."
So try typing out the below address as per my instructions: Type the word acronym for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol - then type the word authorpages - then type a period -then type hoddersystems - then type another period - then type the word com - then type a forward slash - then type the word Jonathan and Kellerman together in one long name - and finally type a forward slash and hit the enter key.
You can do exactly the same thing for his wife's site by typing in her name the same way you do his.

JK himself has made the series a soap opera, "Cold Heart" was more about AD's sex life and his ralations rather than a mysery. MMC

Thank You! That's all I've ever tried to say. Maybe it's a Toledo thing?
