#1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman writes unforgettable tales of crime and detection that expose the shadowy side of glittering Los Angeles. And in Evidence, readers are once again in the dexterous grip of a master storyteller and stylist equally skilled at teasing your brain and taking your breath away.

In the half-built skeleton of a monstrously vulgar mansion in one of L.A.’s toniest neighborhoods, a watchman stumbles on the bodies of a young couple—murdered in flagrante and left in a gruesome postmortem embrace. Though he’s cracked some of the city’s worst slayings, veteran homicide cop Milo Sturgis is still shocked at the grisly sight: a twisted crime that only Milo’s killer instincts—and psychologist Alex Delaware’s keen insights—can hope to solve.

While the female victim’s identity remains a question mark, her companion is identified as eco-friendly architect Desmond Backer, who disdains the sort of grandiose superstructure he’s found dead in. And the late Mr. Backer, it’s revealed, was also notorious for his power to seduce women.

The rare exception is his ex-boss, Helga Gemein, who’s as indifferent to Desmond’s death as she apparently was to his advances. Though Milo and Alex place her on their short list of suspects, the deeper they dig for clues, the longer the list grows. An elusive prince who appears to harbor decidedly American appetites, an eccentric blueblood with an ax to grind, one of Desmond’s restless ex-lovers and her cuckolded husband—all are in the homicidal mix spiced with eco-terrorism, arson, blackmail, conspiracy, and a vendetta that runs deep. But when the investigation veers suddenly in a startling direction, it’s the investigators who may wind up on the wrong end of a cornered predator’s final fury.

    " Good quick read, nice twist at the end. "

    " I was pretty disappointed in this Alex Delaware novel, as I have been, to be perfectly honest, with the last several. I still love Alex, Milo, and Robin, but the plotting is just not as interesting, the descriptions are too bare, and it feels like Kellerman is pounding the new books out without really putting his heart into it. I also thought the plot was a little bizarre (not in a good way) and far fetched. I will probably keep reading the series, just because they are easy and comfortable reads for me, and I still maintain a glimmer of hope that they will once again obtain their former glory. Not really recommended, unless you're already a fan. If you're not, I recommend Kellerman's earlier Alex Delaware books instead, like The Clinic, When the Bough Breaks, or Bad Love, for example. "

    " I like Kellerman's books a lot. But he writes a simple story that barely keeps your interest. Not his normal high level work. He has written many better books and mysteries. Still his main characters Milo and Alex are always fun to follow. "

    " It's more of the same. Twists, turns--but I wasn't invested in the novel. I finished it because I had bought the book and I'm too Scotch to NOT finish a book I paid for. The main bad girl was a 2-dimensional character. Many threads left hanging, but I barely care. The author is going to have to shake it up a bit the next time. "
