Lately I've been caught up in moving to a new home well new to me and my husband and trying to keep on top of reviews of books I've received at no cost from publishers in exchange for reviews So far those books have been nothing short of stellar but I admit it's than a teeny bit stressful knowing I've got to pay close attention so as to render a review that's both honest and fairSo it was that I looked forward to the time when I could turn to a favorite author one I know won't disappoint I've followed Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware series from the beginning prompted early on by a love of psychology my undergraduate degree and murder mysteries Many were absolutely outstanding and those that were a bit less so were enjoyable as wellThis one falls into the latter category As always the writing is stellar; but for the first half or so I wondered when the action would begin Alex is called in by an elderly psychologist to evaluate Ovid the five year old son of TV actress Zelda Chase who clearly has mental issues A few years later Zelda is committed to a psychiatric facility and not long after she's released she turns up dead Primarily concerned about Zelda's son whose whereabouts at this point are unknown Alex turns to his longtime friend LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis for help with solving the murder and locating the childThe tracking down process though is tedious almost to the point of boring Both Alex and Milo seem a bit subdued and Alex's love Robin doesn't contribute much beyond trying to cheer Alex up by running her fingers through his hairBut then things started to pick up and all the details revealed slowly in the first part begin to come together and the suspense builds up It's not that I didn't enjoy the book I did but at the same time it didn't uite have the zing of others in the series All told it may not be my favorite in the series hence the four star rating but it's still well worth reading

Breakdown by Jonathan Kellerman is a 2016 Ballantine Books publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review It’s curious to me at least that as a life long voracious reader I have only remained loyal to a few authors or series I have gone through stages and phases over the years but through all that I have always made an effort to keep up with the Alex Delaware Mystery Series This is the thirty first installment in this long running series and naturally with this sort of longevity there have been a few stinkers in there and I found the last couple of installments to be a little short on action and have been a little disappointed by the absence of or the reduced face time with some of the beloved recurring characters Thankfully with ‘Breakdown’ Kellerman has gotten back into the groove with one of the best novels in this series for some time Years ago Alex was called in to evaluate a five year old boy whose mother Zelda a television actress is in the throes of a mental episode Alex must determine if the charming boy is safe with his mother Now although Zelda was never his patient Alex has been called to a very odd facility where Zelda is being held after yet another apparent psychotic breakdown However her son appears to be missing and Alex is beside himself with concern But things really get tricky when Zelda is found dead and a string of possibly related homicides follows Talk about true evil Wow this story is an incredible tale rich with startling details extremely well plotted and paced which slowly sucked me into a vivid and disturbing portrait of the darker side of humanity which is something Kellerman is a master of The story did start off slowly but once we got past Alex’s outrage over the facility where Zelda was being held the story picked up pace in earnest It was so nice to see Milo back working alongside Alex something that has been missing recently For me Milo is almost as important to the series as Alex and I have missed the pair riding around together working the case eually and of course the hilarious insight Milo offers with his jaded uips I suppose it’s good to see Milo cutting back on refrigerator raids but I always thought it was funny how he made himself at home with Alex and Robin and although he plays a bigger role in this latest chapter I still found his personality somewhat muted As to Alex’s personal life which has also been muted recently and I realize Robin was never playing a huge part in the mysteries I do like to stay updated on what she’s doing or how she is feeling about what is going on at the time However she does get a small chance to help out here but for the most part she remains firmly in the background with little or no dialogue between the couple which is a little disappointing but this is a minor complaint in the big scheme of things Changes are a part of life and so it’s only natural for a series to go through changes over time as well but I must say I am relieved to see things return to the formula or style I like most and what I feel works the best This story is another absorbing mystery an incredibly frustrating guessing game and I found it uite interesting to see Alex who always seems capable of telling his story in a rather unflappable manner so emotionally disturbed His concern for this young boy had me wanting to give Alex a big hug and comfort him I liked seeing this vulnerable side of him and would like to see of this type of emotion from him from time to time Overall I am very satisfied and pleased with this book and find myself looking forward to the next book in the series so than usual 45 stars
