In seventeen consecutive bestselling novels, Jonathan Kellerman has distinguished himself as the master of the psychological thriller. Now in Kellerman’s most compelling and powerful novel yet, L.A. psychologist-detective Alex Delaware confronts a long-unsolved murder of unspeakable brutality—an ice-cold case whose resolution threatens his survival, and that of longtime friend, homicide detective, Milo Sturgis.

The nightmare begins when Alex receives a strange package in the mail with no return address. Inside is an ornate album filled with gruesome crime scene photos—a homicide scrapbook entitled The Murder Book. Alex can find no reason for anyone to send him this compendium of death, but when Milo views the book, he is immediately shaken by one of the images: a young woman, tortured, strangled, and dumped near a freeway ramp.

This was one of Milo’s first cases as a rookie homicide cop: a vicious killing that he failed to solve, because just as he and his training partner began to make headway, the department closed them down. Being forced to abandon the young victim tormented Milo. But his fears prevented him from pursuing the truth, and over the years he managed to forget. Or so he thought.

Now, two decades later, someone has chosen to stir up the past. As Alex and Milo set out to uncover what really happened twenty years ago, their every move is followed and their lives are placed in jeopardy. The relentless investigation reaches deep into L.A.’s nerve-centers of power and wealth—past and present. While peeling back layer after layer of ugly secrets, they discover that the murder of one forgotten girl has chilling ramifications that extend far beyond the tragic loss of a single life.

A classic story of good and evil, sacrifice and sin, The Murder Book is a gripping page-turner that illuminates the darkest corridors of the human mind. It is a stunning tour de force.

    " Initially, I gave it three stars im March last year (2009) but as I cannot remember the book at all for some reason now (February 2010), I have to conclude it was not that good. Hence the reduction in stars. "

    " Language! This is an Alex Delaware story and I usually enjoy these but not so much this one. Maybe because there were so many disfunctional families causing so much harm, even Alex's own relationship is going south. I need to read something happy!! "

    " Haven't read this author before and thought I would give him a try. Book was a bit long-winded and not all that interesting. A cold case comes back and found many rich people who were blocking the path to justice. "

    " Mmm, not one of his better books. The whole thing about the "Murder Book" was definitely interesting but it kind of turned out ehhh for me. I'm still a loyal Alex Delaware fan though! "
