Alex Delaware, The Crime Reader, returns in Evidence - a compulsive novel from Jonathan Kellerman, the master of psychological suspense.
Early one morning a foreman shows up at the building site of a mega-mansion. Proceeding up unfinished plank steps, he arrives at the master bedroom. There, lying on a blanket, are a man and a woman, stabbed and bludgeoned to death.
Who are the lovers Why have they chosen a construction site for their late-night tryst. Is the double murder simply a horrific example of wrong-place, wrong-time Or were the victims stalked And will the outrage be repeated
Alex and Milo are called in;as they struggle to make their way through the alternative universe that is the domain of the impossibly rich, they discover a scheme rooted in deception and evil beyond even their imaginations.
The expected unexpected twists are embedded in a tale of real texture: every character, no matter how minor is given a life of their own - and the cat-and-mouse interviews led by Sturgis as he tries to nail a suspect are nothing less than superb - Evening Standard
