Now the field of suspects is spread wide open. You may ask why a child psychologist would be consulted for a murder investigation where no children are involved? Good question! But he always is Un-like previous books in this series, the emphasis is on the murder investigation rather than the personal lives of Alex and Milo. Robin, Alex's long time girlfriend plays a very minor role in this book. As does their French bulldog Blanche. I"ve always enjoyed this series. This book holds up to all his previous work and is another great addition.

But it was the murder of a high flying divorcee by the name of Ursula Corey that brought the two men back together on the cases. As Milo bounced theories off Alex, they realised they had a psychopath on their hands — a person who left a sick, misdirecting signature again and again. But Milo had more than one suspect, and working out who was 4.

But Milo had more than one suspect, and working out who was who; what the motive was and where the next murder would be was consuming him and his team. Alex was working his line of ideas — but would they be able to put their thoughts together? With more bodies turning up, the clock was ticking to resolve the situation quickly. Would they? Could they? And were the murders connected? Fast-paced with high octane thrills, and a touch of humour along the way, Motive is one I highly recommend. View all 4 comments. This was an ok read I have read all the books in this series but the last couple of ones have been a bit disappointing.

The plot was set in the usual dark and sinister side of LA, which the author writes so well about. I must admit that I never expected the revelation of the baddies at the end View all 6 comments.

Feb 25, Pamela rated it did not like it. The big mystery here is Why oh Why do I continue to waste eye-time with these books. Typical Kellerman drivel. Too much time spent describing every single article of clothing each character is wearing--but then again, when the characters are as shallow and one-dimensional as Kellerman's, clothing matters.

Delaware himself isn't all that bright, but compared to his compatriots, he's a rocket surgeon. One sentence paragraphs. Save me fr The big mystery here is Why oh Why do I continue to waste eye-time with these books. Save me from one sentence paragraphs!

A great read from an author I've been reading for over 20 years and one I look forward to every year. I enjoyed this one. Kellerman fell flat for a couple of books in the last few years, but this one was solidly back on track. Great plot; although it's easy to pick out the who in Kellerman's books, it's always the why that keeps me reading, and this one was no exception.

I also liked that it flowed well and was well-focused; right from the first page, it got right into the plot. No easing into it A great read from an author I've been reading for over 20 years and one I look forward to every year. No easing into it, and the pace didn't let up until the end.

I've noticed in several books that it gets bogged down in the middle usually with Alex massaging his OCD but there was little if any of that in this book. A solid read to curl up with on a winter weekend. The Alex Delaware in this book is nothing like he used to be. But then, neither is Kellerman it seems.

In the earlier novels, the plotting was clever and the characters were excellently rendered: flawed and human and real. Now, they all just seem like filler. Instead of being great, these books are just ok. Another reviewer said there was no magic left, and for me, that sums up this book. It was entirely unmemorable. Still, thank you to Netgalley and Headline for this copy in exchange for an hone The Alex Delaware in this book is nothing like he used to be.

Still, thank you to Netgalley and Headline for this copy in exchange for an honest review. Jan 04, Skip rated it liked it Shelves: crime-detective. Alex Delaware about a murder case, where he is making no progress. The strangled, stabbed victim is a young woman, and an elegant dinner for two has been set at the murder scene.

Then a divorcee is gunned down in a Century City parking garage, after a visit to het lawyer. Hardly although the tie-in takes awhile. Many suspects are introduced, and much of the novel is Alex theorizing about the identity and psychoses of the killer. Mi 30, really? Milo plays, at best, a supporting role.

Lots of violence, with an unexpected ending. View 2 comments. I've read all the Alex Delaware books and they have become very, very formulaic. There is a murder. Milo Sturgis teams up with Dr. Alex Delaware to try to solve it. Alex is constantly asking himself a lot of questions as he ponders the crime. Milo eats a lot. Throw in a lot of red herrings. The perpetrator turns out to be someone barely mentioned at the start of the book. Rinse and repeat for the next book. This wasn't a bad book, it just wasn't anything special.

Kellerman needs to do somet I've read all the Alex Delaware books and they have become very, very formulaic. Kellerman needs to do something to get out of this rut.

Bad Love (Alex Delaware series, Book 8): A taut, terrifying psychological thriller

Also, when Alex and Milo are talking, he needs to do more to indicate who is saying what. After a few lines, it's hard to keep the dialogue straight. I used to buy these books when they first came out. Now I wait until they come out in paperback, and let my husband read them first. They've just lost their special appeal. Other authors are doing this genre much better, sadly. Feb 12, Monnie rated it really liked it. Like the previous two books in the author's series featuring psychologist Dr.

Alex Delaware - I believe this is the 30th - Motive falls a bit short of a 5-star rating in my book. Mostly, I attribute that to a few too many characters who seem to be included just for the heck of it to throw readers off track, perhaps? Ah yes, and one other thing: So many run-on sentences that I lost count in the first two chapters. I admit to being picky when it comes Like the previous two books in the author's series featuring psychologist Dr.

I admit to being picky when it comes to grammar, but God made semicolons and dashes for a good reason. But on the plus side, it's still Kellerman - and chalk up another better-than-decent one that brings together the good doctor, a consultant to the LAPD, and his good friend, police lieutenant Milo Sturgis. The latter calls Alex to help when a young woman is found murdered in her home.

That murder is followed by the gunning down of a gorgeous and successful woman who's been in the process of divorcing her business partner husband for the past three years. The plot thickens when it appears that the killer may have set up fake meals for two at the victims' homes after the fact, leading the investigators to a suspect who's a chef with a fiery temper whoa, Nelly, what a concept! New suspects pop up all over the place, from the chef to the ex-husband to the respective divorce attorneys, but solid evidence does not; perhaps that explains why the usual gruff but go-get-'em Sturgis seems to adopt an almost ho-hum attitude.

Even his usually super-healthy appetite is a bit more subdued than usual but only a bit. Not the best I've read in the series which includes virtually every one , but definitely worth a shot. I've been a fan of the Alex Delaware series right from the start well I say from the start, I read the first 6 or so all in a heap and since then have not missed a single one and they never fail to get my reading mojo going - excellent reads every time. Milo of course. Can't have Alex without Milo - the best "buddy" pairing around in crime fiction as far as I am concerned and both are on top form in "Motive" as Milo is landed with a randomly strange case involving dead bodies and a lot of food I've been a fan of the Alex Delaware series right from the start well I say from the start, I read the first 6 or so all in a heap and since then have not missed a single one and they never fail to get my reading mojo going - excellent reads every time.

Can't have Alex without Milo - the best "buddy" pairing around in crime fiction as far as I am concerned and both are on top form in "Motive" as Milo is landed with a randomly strange case involving dead bodies and a lot of food stuff. As Alex is his go to guy for the weird and horrific, they start to try and make some sense of it all. But as ever these things are never easy and before we know it BAM things are getting darker..

I'm a big fan of the prose that Kellerman uses to involve the reader in the plot, it just kind of gently flows over you but before you know it you are engrossed and utterly addicted. The characters have grown so beautifully over time, with all the ups and downs, you know them so well - and yet every time you have something new and even after all this time those we know best can act in an unpredictable manner - it keeps things fresh and never fails to keep you intrigued.

Motive was basically another great story, involving some terrifically drawn characters with all the disturbing twisty turns you can hope for within a series that could potentially run a good few years yet. Here's hoping. Happy Reading Folks! Feb 10, SherrieB rated it really liked it. It opens with the murder of a young woman in her apartment. The aberration is that her table has been set up post crime with a dinner for two.

When another woman is murdered and her table for two is set, the case moves into Dr. This novel is classic Kellerman. There are plenty of red herrings along the way. In fact, Kellerman is known for this. He throws out red herrings like a crazed jester throwing beads at a Mardi Gras parade. I know this. I expect this. Every time I read a Kellerman novel, I have a conversation with myself. For fans of Kellermans, you will not be disappointed. Another enjoyable book in the Alex Delaware series. I have them all except Thriller 29 in this series and just ordered from the library. Apr 25, Tyler Colins rated it liked it.

I don't know why I keep reading books in this once great series, because it's just depressing. I think he wrote this book while an episode of "Hannibal" was on in the same room.

A fiendish serial killer who murders women and carefully arranges dinner scenes next to the corpses? Yeah, that's your typical Southern California crime. The dialogue is even loonier than usual, with everyone from Vietnamese businesswomen to patrol cops to chefs spouting the same unlikely sentences. Here's an elderly Jew I don't know why I keep reading books in this once great series, because it's just depressing. Here's an elderly Jewish lawyer: "Listen, I'm a geezer who's had two types of cancer and what the heck, what can anyone do to me?

So here's the dirt: once day I noticed Grant's pudgy paw finding its way to Ursula's shapely buttocks when no one was looking. Alex did more police work than Milo in this case. Two women are murdered at different times and in different ways. The second woman, however, was killed in a parking garage after visiting her lawyer. The table was set at her home after her murder. Very odd. The cases Moreland chooses to share--a patient driven to madness by a cruel, unspeakable act; a man who succumbed forty years ago to radiation poisoning after a nuclear blast; a young woman, brutally murdered, whose mutilated body was found on the beach just six months before-- seem unconnected.

And yet Alex can't help wondering what the good doctor is trying to tell him As Alex probes--with a little long-distance help from his friend LAPD detective Milo Sturgis--he comes to believe the answer lies hidden somewhere on Moreland's vast estate. Yet when he finally discovers the truth, the revelation will be more shocking than he could have imagined.
