ONE WILD PARTY.
FOUR COUNTS OF MURDER.
A mansion in Beverly Hills is leased out to host an event wild enough to herald the end of days.
The next day there isn’t a living soul to be seen. In the driveway sits a superstretch limo, unlocked, with four bodies inside it. Nothing links the victims together. Each has been killed in a different way.
Now it’s up to brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware and LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis to begin their grisliest and most baffling case yet.
As they struggle to make sense of the mass slaying, they will be forced to confront a level of evil that nothing can prepare them for.
Deviant, sophisticated, and gripping!
In this latest novel by Kellerman, The Museum of Desire, we head back to Beverly Hills where LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis and his sidekick psychologist Alex Delaware find themselves on a gruesome case involving an empty mansion, a fancy limousine, and four brutally slain bodies who seem to have no connection to each other whatsoever.
The writing is meticulous and absorbing. The characters are multilayered, persistent, and intuitive. And the plot, including all the subplots, unravel and intertwine methodically into a sinister tale full of deception, deprivation, manipulation, mayhem, violence, and murder.
It’s hard to believe that this novel, The Museum of Desire is the thirty-fifth book in the Alex Delaware series. In fact, in the late 80s and early 90s, Jonathan Kellerman was my favourite author, and although over the past decade or so I haven’t picked up the newest titles in this series it was so wonderful to crawl back into this dark, gritty side of Hollywood and reacquaint myself with these unique characters.
