Don't start with "Private Eyes" if you're looking to see the Alex Delaware character at his very best. Kellerman is a terrific writer when he doesn't drop the ball, but that's exactly what he does in this particular instance.

Jonathan Kellerman keeps getting better as I make my way through the early books in the series. Having read a much later installment--which was actually quite good and prompted me to go back to the beginning in the first place--I know that can't continue indefinitely. With "Silent Partner," though, he was at the top of his game.

I blew through the second Alex Delaware novel pretty quickly, and there were parts I really liked, but I had a lot of issues with it too. Check my review to find out what they were.

I would say that "When the Bough Breaks," the first Alex Delaware novel from Jonathan Kellerman, is too clever for its own good. But whatever. I'd rather an author go that route than the opposite, you know? Check out my review for more info.

It has been quite some time since my last book review. Almost a month, in fact, and the reason for that is that I simply haven't been doing a lot of reading. But I finally got around to finishing another novel--a good one, even--and now I've reviewed it.

Unless Lawrence Block writes more Matthew Scudder novels (something I would welcome, by the way), I think I've now read just about every story there ever will be about one of New York's most human investigators. The short story collection wasn't as good as I hoped, but certainly it was still interesting. If you'd like to know more, check out my detailed review.

I didn't want this one to end because it's almost certainly the end of the road as far as Matthew Scudder novels go (thankfully, I still have a short story collection to enjoy), but of course it had to eventually and now I've reviewed it...

If "Cover Her Face" is any indication of things to come, I'm going to have a lot of fun reading through the works of the late P.D. James...
