Description

This book delivers everything we have come to know and love about this series and would appeal to fans of the authors works.

Donnie's father turns out to be a reclusive billionaire who had been married quite a few times with three children by different mothers, and a child on the way with his current fiancee. He wore a pessimistic black suit, a beige shirt stretched tight over his gut, and a skinny brown tie whose origins could be traced to a chemistry lab.He would dress up homeless people “like full-sized marionettes” and coax them to talk about their fantasies. As usual, this is packed with intrigue and funny one-liners from Milo which moves the story right along.

In the denouement – a noir-ish nighttime confrontation by the coast – Delaware needs to be saved by his police pals rather than the other way round, a re-balancing of the ledger that will doubtless be good for the character in the long run.This face was narrow, delicately boned, the sweaty skin stretched drum-tight, and it remained still.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Random House Publishing Group – Ballantine and Jonathan Kellerman via NetGalley. Once Melissande is able to speak, she reveals that Donny was the son of a billionaire named Victor Klement, who Donny never saw. This time it explores the very sensitive, current topic of homelessness in and around the gritty Los Angeles area. And the plot is a sinister tale full of twists, turns, deception, mayhem, suspicious personalities, revelations, homelessness, familial dysfunction, mental illness, and murder.While the mystery structure might be time-tested, the locations and suspects are a departure for Kellerman. Loyal readers will be happy with it, I think - certainly I am - and I thank the publisher, via NetGalley, for once again allowing me to read and review a pre-release copy.

Despite or perhaps because of his traumatic childhood, Delaware remains an empathetic observer of human nature. Horticultural Faux Pas (plants out of season or growing zones, like daffodils in autumn or bougainvillea in Alaska): NO Kellerman knows his native Southern California landscaping as well as the fact that silver-dollar eucalyptus is an interloper from Australia and both it and bougainvillea are hillside fire hazards.

She’s the newly hired personal assistant to a handsome, wealthy photographer and is ready to greet her boss with coffee and good cheer. Kellerman has a deft hand with description, and it's easy to picture the characters and what they're wearing. We are—well, ask Bigfoot, as Brooks does in this delightful yarn, following on his bestseller World War Z (2006). Why DMV bothers to record hair color has always mystified me and Melissande Gornick proved my point with a hot-pink, teased-up do. Translated by Quentin Bates — The Dancer is Icelandic author Óskar Guðmundsson’s second book translated into English, following The Commandments in 2021.
