Internationally bestselling husband and wife Jonathan and Faye Kellerman team up for a powerful one-two punch with Capital Crimes, a gripping pair of original crime thrillers.

My Sister’s Keeper: Berkeley
Some of progressive state representative Davida Grayson’s views have made her unpopular. Although her foes are numerous no one suspects that any buttons Davida might push could evoke deadly force.

But now Davida lies brutally murdered in her office, and Berkeley homicide detectives Will Barnes and Amanda Isis must unravel Davida’s complex, before the killer pulls off a repeat performance.

Music City Breakdown: Nashville
Baker Southerby was a child prodigy performer. But something leads him to become a Nashville cop. His partner, Lamar Van Gundy, is a would-be studio bassist who earned himself a detective’s badge. As part of Nashville PD’s elite murder squad, they catch a homicide that’s high-profile even for a city where musical celebrity is routine.

Capital Crimes is page-turning, psychologically resonant suspense—just what we’ve come to expect from two of the world’s most successful crime writers.

    " Very predictable. Was disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 2/15/2014

    " Enjoyed the combination of Jonathan and Faye. In fact I began to read her books too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny Gumbel | 2/13/2014

    " I like these authors, but I think they are better at writing full length novels versus novellas. I feel both stories lacked the character and plot development I come to expect from a Kellerman. That being said, it was still a great read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 2/11/2014

    " Not a great book, but a quick read, especially when you are at the Pittsburgh airport for 5 hours. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 2/8/2014

    " Both stories are ok--not good but ok. Better than I expected. I'm not sure that this husband/wife should try the "let's write something together." I cannot recommend this to Jonathan Kellerman fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marni Stewart | 2/7/2014

    " I really enjoy the characters in the various Kellerman's books. I enjoyed this book, its not the best book I've ever read, but I looked forward to reading each night. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sae-chan | 2/7/2014

    " It's ok when you are really really bored and no other books catch your eyes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/29/2014

    " A couple of good who-done-its. Not riveting but a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan | 1/22/2014

    " Being a fan of both John and Faye, I was surprised I wasn't enamoured with either of the stories, first one being better than the last. Stick with what you do best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Poling | 1/16/2014

    " This is really two short books. Each one features the heros that return in each of the authors books. They were fast reads and didn't have the thickness of plot that their individual books do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phyllis | 1/10/2014

    " love the two authors, read everything they write "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 12/26/2013

    " This book was just OK; it's really two novellas in one book. When you can put a mystery down to read something else, you know it's not spellbounding. But it wasn't hideous either. Just formulaic, sort of handed you the solution, particularly the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise M. | 12/21/2013

    " with Faye Kellerman "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/4/2013

    " I enjoyed the book. I didn't realize that it was made up of the two novella until I had almost finished the first. It just threw me. But I did enjoy the stories, in fact I've decided to re-read some older Kellermans. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 11/29/2013

    " Excellent, Excellent!! Love this husband-wife collaborations!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 grundoon | 11/3/2013

    " 3.5 A couple of light-ish procedural collaborative novellas, with not-so-incidental cameos from their main protagonists. Decent enough as stand-alones, probably of more interest to series' fans for the external takes on the familiars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 9/20/2013

    " I am a big fan of both Jonathan & Faye Kellerman writing individualy. This book is actually two novella's in one. It was an average read. I didn't rate it higher because I am not a big fan of novella's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 7/16/2013

    " I love both of the Kellermans - and I really like how this book involved their "staple" characters while introducing new ones. The stories were easy to read and short - but I would have liked them to be a bit longer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 jess | 5/15/2013

    " I read both Faye and Jonathan Kellerman novels. This novella only reinforced that I like Jonathan better. His novella just seemed smarter, and I also just flat out enjoyed it more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorer002 | 2/15/2013

    " This book was fine, as far as mysteries go, but it wasn't as good as I expect Kellerman books to be. I liked the first novella much better than the second, although it was a bit funny to see a "cameo" by Alex Delaware. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 8/27/2012

    " Not as good as a Faye Kellerman book, and not as intricately written as you would hope two people who have lived together for over 2 decades could muster but ok "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maxine | 4/24/2012

    " Read the first novella, My Sister's Keeper, it was rather boring. Decided not to read the second, Music City Breakdown. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 4/22/2012

    " Although I am a huge fan of the two authors of this book, I did not enjoy the deviation from their usual separate writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 4/17/2012

    " I still find Faye Kellerman input the more interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora | 3/11/2012

    " This was an OK book. It is two short stories one by each Kellerman. I am not as familiar with Faye's books. I have read several of Jonathan's books and have greatly enjoyed them. I was a little disappointed in this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kj | 2/27/2012

    " I do not like his wives books so I gave this 2 stars for him. Not the best but maybe they had a fight & had to work on a book to make up???? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hope R | 2/9/2012

    " This was a trick. I was looking forward to trying Jonathan Kellerman's work with his wife. I was not expecting novellas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janetlee | 11/13/2011

    " This book kind of moved slowly in the first story, My Sister's Keeper, by Faye. It was okay. The second story by Jonathan was more interesting. He even managed to get Alex Delaware in there for a cameo! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee Jennings | 10/20/2011

    " The first novella was really engaging. I found myself losing interest half way through the second, but since it was so short, I finished it. Worth reading though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 7/12/2011

    " This is like 2 short stories in 1 and there is not enough time for involved plot. I liked the way that each short story featured a cameo from one of the authors key characters! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 5/15/2011

    " two stories in one. both are interesting. lesbians in one story, nashville music scene in the other. what more could you ask for? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susannah | 5/13/2011

    " Two vignettes by (respectively) Faye and Jonathan Kellerman; as usual, Faye is the far superior writer, and her story is entertaining, the other poor. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dodokins | 4/29/2011

    " It's ok when you are really really bored and no other books catch your eyes. "

    " *** Two individual stories in one book - "My Sister's Keeper" & "Music City Breakdown". Each are well written and enjoyable... but I've waited too long to write this review and can't add any better commentary. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maxine | 12/28/2010
