The #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman writes razor-sharp novels that cut to the quick. Now comes Motive, which pits psychologist Alex Delaware and homicide cop Milo Sturgis against a vicious criminal mind—the kind only Kellerman can bring to chilling life.

Even having hundreds of closed cases to his credit can’t keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonizing over the crimes that don’t get solved—and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end—one even Alex Delaware’s expert insight can’t explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case—because there’s always a next one.

This time the victim is Ursula Corey, a successful, attractive divorcée who’s been gunned down—not in a robbery but an execution, a crime that laments of simple, savage revenge. And along with that theoretical motive comes two strong contenders for the role of perp: the dead woman’s business partner/ex-husband and her divorce lawyer/secret lover. But just as Alex and Milo think they’re zeroing in on the most likely suspect, a bizarre new clue stirs up eerie echoes of the unsolved Hennepin murder. And the discovery of yet another crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the specter of a serial killer on a mission—whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulative and cunning madness.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The combination of Alex Delaware [and] Detective Milo Sturgis…makes for the most original whodunit duo since Watson and Holmes.”

    Forbes, praise for the series

  • “Jonathan Kellerman’s psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix.”

    Los Angeles Times, praise for the author

  • “Victim number one: A woman found brutally murdered, a bloody crime scene near a dining room perfectly set for a romantic dinner. Her boyfriend easily identified. Victim number two: A wife dispatched with three bullets in the head; her husband now the beneficiary of a booming business. In each case, the men have impenetrable alibis. As more bodies roll into the coroner’s office, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis senses an underlying pattern and gradually recognizes that a serial killer is taunting him.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • “The crafty plot of Edgar-winner Kellerman’s thirtieth novel featuring LA psychologist Alex Delaware will even keep genre veterans guessing…The twists are both shocking and logical, and the byplay between the leads entertaining.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “John Rubenstein is acclaimed for his narrations of Kellerman’s psychological thrillers featuring Dr. Alex Delaware. This title is somewhat different from earlier installments, but the quality of the writing and narration hasn’t changed. What first appears to be the single murder of a young woman turns out to be just the beginning. It looks like a serial killer is afoot as the bodies pile up—each found with an uneaten meal nearby. Rubenstein is quick to bring forward the author’s wit and produces a string of exceptional male and female voices. The team of Kellerman and Rubenstein should never be broken up.”
