Unraveling the madness behind . s most baffling and brutal homicides is what sleuthing psychologist Alex Delaware does best.

When the phone rings in the middle of the night, child psychologist Alex Delaware does not hesitate. Driving through the dream-lit San Fernando Valley, Alex rushes to Jamey Cadmus, the patient he had failed five years before-and who now calls with a bizarre cry for help. Unraveling the madness behind . And putting the good doctor through his thrilling paces is what mystery fiction’s bestselling master of psychological suspense Jonathan Kellerman does with incomparable brilliance.

In a glamorous area of Los Angeles, the Beverley Fauborg hotel is about to close for good. Psychologist Alex Delaware and his girlfriend Robin are making a farewell visit to the hotel bar when one patron in particular grabs their attention - a beautiful but aloof young woman dressed all in white.Two days later, Alex is called in on a murder case and is shocked when he recognises the victim as the woman in white. Discovering her true identity is not going to be easy though, and Milo's investigation into the girl nicknamed 'Mystery' leads him to the darkest of secrets in the highest of places.

Finally after a misstep with Deception: An Alex Delaware Novel (Alex Delaware Novels) (and honestly I wasn't too thrilled with Evidence: An Alex Delaware Novel either) Alex and Milo are back in top form. Alex and Robin are out to spend one last night at the Fauborg Hotel bar before the hotel is demolished and they see a lovely young woman who appears to be waiting for someone who never shows. That was the only contact Alex and Robin had with her until Milo shows up with gruesome photos of her corpse. With no way to identify this beautiful girl Milo, with Alex's insightful help, (and some very unexpected help from the lovely Robin) have to track down this poor girl's identity, figure out who would want to kill her in sure a horrific fashion and figure out how it relates to the monied elite, with a bonus tie in to Alex's old acquaintance,former madam Gretchen Stengel.

This is by far the best Jonathan Kellerman book I've read in while, and like a true junkie, I have them all. I loved how the there was more banter between Milo and Alex than there has been in a long time because that has been sorely missing from his books of late. Also, I loved the fact that Alex brought Robin along for a stakeout because ever they broke up and she told him she had a problem with him not sharing much about what he does in his professional life it makes sense for her to take an interest. Plus, her insights are fresh and in general this just seemed more like the Kellerman I fell in love with and whose books comprise two whole shelves of one of my books cases. I actually chuckled at a couple of places and I haven't done that in a while, so I have to say that Kellerman fans will be pleased. The only down side I can say is that it did drag a little in the middle and while it may not have been edge of your seat thrilling it was a finely turned novel.
"Like a con man on the run, L.A. buries its past." Jonathan Kellerman has a nack for writing first lines, and the first line of "Mystery" is one of his best.

In this entry to Kellerman's Alex Delaware series, Dr. Delaware and Lieutenant Milo Sturgis are back and in top form as they investigate the murder of an unidentified woman. Delaware is particulary drawn to the case because he and his lover, Robin, saw the victim in a bar only hours before she died.

As in almost all of the Delaware books, Kellerman's suspects and witnesses (as well as most of the other minor characters) are so skillfully presented most readers would be able to pick them out of a line-up and give an accurate assessment of their personalities -- if they weren't fictional. And the characters are truly interesting, too, although, as almost always, Rick, Milo's life partner, and Alex's Robin take second place to the murder investigation and the relationship between the two investigators. (Be warned that if you're looking for characters who are always in danger, who fight with their fists every few pages, and who grab and down a bottle of Scotch at every opportunity, this book is probably not for you.)

Sturgis and Delaware, as indicated in another review, make interviews look almost too easy, but they've been working together for so many years, they'd have to be very slow learners not to become increasingly better at what they do.

The plot is entertaining and pulls in the reader as layers of the "mystery" are revealed. A sub-plot, which involves a child and a dying woman, might have been awarded a few more pages, but is probably a realistic depiction of the time a real Alex Delaware would expend on the case.

Much of the dialogue between Milo and Alex is snappy and clever, as might be expected between two intelligent, old friends who know each other well. In fact, as a long-time admirer of this series, I look forward to each entry in the series so I can enjoy the company of characters I think of as my old friends.

And, really, be honest now. How can a reader resist Milo, a character who "arrived freshly shaved, hair slicked, wearing his version of haute couture: baggy blue suit bought for a funeral ten years ago, white wash-'n'-wear shirt, discouraged blue tie, black-leather oxfords in lieu of the colorless boots"? And who can resist an author who can write that sentence?
Alex Delaware and LAPD Detective Milo Sturgis are paired up again in a vintage Hollywood murder. Alex and his longtime girlfriend Robin dine for one last evening in an iconic hotel that is closing. While there, they see a young girl in a skimpy white dress, diamond watch, and a scarf draped over her head. They take notice but then think nothing of it until Milo comes knocking on their door telling them she has been found murdered. A few days later, a name they turned up in the investigation is found murdered in eerily similar circumstances.

As a side story, Alex consults in a child therapy case for a Hollywood madame that is dying. Kellerman introduces this story, but then it never really goes anywhere. The story is brought in again at the very end of the book, but it was in a rushed oops-I-need-to-tie-this-in type way.

Kellerman's writing was a little bit off his usual style in "Mystery." He seemed to dabble a bit in noir, and it didn't quite fit. The story had a few elements of old Hollywood glamour, and noir would seemingly be appropriate, but the elements together didn't quite work. Fans will enjoy the book but I believe find it a bit disappointing. Milo's grumpy attitude, Alex's humorless disposition, and Robin and Alex's settled but boring relationship are wearing thin. I believe that Kellerman should follow the example of John Sandford and create a protege for Alex, as Virgil Flowers is for Lucas Davenport.
What's not to love about an Alex Delaware ? This one has the usual suspects, twists, turns and great dialog between Alex and best buddy Milo Sturgis. I am very very sad that I am coming to the end of the list of unread Delaware books because pleasure is a "sure thing" when you pick up one of Jonathan Kellerman's main go to guy.
