Praise for Jonathan Kellerman Jonathan Kellerman has justly earned his reputation as a master of the psychological thriller. People Kellerman really knows how to keep those pages turning. The case involves warring sisters. One, Connie Sykes, is a pathologist with plenty of money, but a cold personality, while her sister Cherie seems downtrodden and potentially a disastrous mother, but with a sweetness that bodes well for her.

John Rubenstein is excellent. He voices each character differently which makes it easy to follow. I especially like his portrayal of Milo.

All in all, A Cold Heart is typical Jonathan Kellerman, a well-plotted, well-written and well-enjoyed journey into the world of investigative psychology. John Rubenstein is excellent.

Jonathan Kellerman is a master at creating psychologically nuanced novels of suspense—an author whose name is synonymous with unrelenting action, intriguing plot twists, and penetrating insight into the criminal mind. Now he ventures into bold, new territory with his biggest and best novel yet. A Cold Heart features Kellerman’s brilliant signature style—but in this tour-de-force he mines even deeper the emotional landscape of his characters: psychologist-sleuth Alex Delaware, LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, Milo’s colleague Petra Connor, and Alex’s ex-lover, Robin Castagna—bringing them all vividly to life as never before.“I’ve got a weird one, so naturally I thought of you,” says Milo Sturgis, summoning his friend Alex to the trendy gallery where a promising young artist has been brutally garroted on the night of her first major showing. What makes it “a weird one” is the lack of any obvious motive, and the luridly careful staging of the murder scene—which immediately suggests to Alex not an impulsive crime of passion . . . but the meticulous and taunting modus operandi of a serial killer. Delaware’s suspicion is borne out when he compares notes with Milo’s associate, Petra Connor, and her new partner, a strange, taciturn detective with a past of his own named Eric Stahl. The Hollywood cops are investigating the vicious death of Baby Boy Lee, a noted blues guitarist, fatally stabbed after a late-night set at a local club. What links Baby Boy’s murder with that of painter Juliet Kipper is the shadowy presence of an abrasive fanzine writer. This alias-shrouded critic’s love-the-art/disdain-the-artist philosophy and his morbid fascination with the murders leads Alex and the detectives to suspect they’re facing a new breed of celebrity stalker: one with a fetish for snuffing out rising stars.Tracking down the killer proves to be maddening, with the twisting trail leading from halfway houses to palatial mansions and from a college campus to the last place Alex ever expected: the doorstep of his ex-lover Robin Castagna, whose business association with two of the victims casts her as an unavoidable player in the unfolding case. As more and more killings are discovered, unraveling the maddening puzzle assumes a chilling new importance—stopping a vicious psychopath who’s made cold-blood murder his chosen art form.From the Hardcover edition.

I've been reading this series since I was a teenager (I'm in my thirties now) and generally am always thrilled at the intricate and interesting mysteries the author comes up with. Alex and Milo are an incredible duo and it's always a treat to see them working together to solve a crime.

The thing about this particular entry is that Kellerman decides to venture away from the first person narration, a staple of this series, and start to go into different viewpoints. So one chapter is told in first person by Alex Delaware, the next from Milo, and the other two from newer characters. I can see he was trying to explore a different way to tell his story, but the perspective shifts are very jarring and it starts turning too much into a by the numbers police procedural, like a really long episode of Law and Order.

What makes this series unique is that you see these crimes through the mind of a psychologist and a detective, not just a bunch of detectives. And this entry lost that feeling as the new characters really aren't that engaging and, again, it feels jarring more than anything else.

Luckily he abandoned this multiple viewpoints experiment after this one.

So all in all, if you've never read an Alex Delaware book, don't start with this one. The overall mystery is still fun, like it always is, but the presentation is just so mediocre it makes it much less enjoyable.

Let me just get this out of the way Mr. Kellerman! Reading the story, no matter how compelling, just isn't as good as any story with Dr.Delaware and Robin together as a couple, so let's try for a reconciliation. Please? This story begins as always, with a murder, this time a murdered rapper, a man making a comeback after a failed start. Next victim, an artist who is also attempting to revive her career. Dr. Delaware and his favorite detective Milo are called in to help with the case. The next victim is a concert pianist and the heat is on to find the link to these murders before the next body is found. As always the writing is great, with wonderful descriptions of L.A. landscapes, characters described down to their tattoos, and my favorite, hungry investigators eating at L.A. eateries. Fun, fast moving, and totally entertaining is how I would describe A Cold Heart. Kellerman always delivers.

I am usually hooked into an Alex Delaware novel and unable to put it down. For the most part I usually read the books in one sitting. I can't pin point the reason I just couldn't find myself liking this book but for the first time it took me over a week to finish the book. It was almost 3/4 of the book before I really got interested in it. I assume that part of it could be Robin and Alex not being together and both with new significant others. There is also a lot left unresolved between the two. Also both of their significant others seem to be terribly accommodating about the arrangement. Not close to my favorite book by Jonathan Kellerman but not the worst either.

Kellerman's 17th installment in the Alex Delaware series keeps you guessing, keeps you entertained, but hasn't the elements of true suspense that kept "The Murder Book" on pace with some of his earliest work. Unlike Michael Connelly, Kellerman just can't seem to take the risks with Delaware that he needs to take to keep the series fresh and compelling. Still, I'm giving the book four stars...
Delaware is the one who makes the leap in this mystery to connect seemingly unrelated homicide cases. He draws old friend Milo Sturgis and another former character, Petra Connor, (who makes a welcome return) into the mix, along with Connor's new and unusual partner. Focused on the arts and music, the victims of the killer have their lives taken from them mysteriously, by a killer who may just be jealous of their recent successes.
Sadly, Delaware, who has a new love in his life, can't seem to draw away from Robin Castagna, both personally and professionally, although many Delaware fans are hoping that Kellerman will "Give it up!" on their troubled romance. Robin's new love is a bit of an oddity, as well, who keeps getting in Delaware's way.
The mystery is just compelling enough, and the action realistic, to hold your interest, although Kellerman, who has now completed the last four books in the series with some of the style and characterization he had in the early going of the series, falls short of "The Murder Book". It may be time for Delaware to return to the field of crimes against children, where his original psychological skills best focused.
You'll not regret the read, and you'll finish quickly, but unlike some of his earlier work, it won't leave you with regrets that it will be awhile before Alex's next outing.
