"Deception" by Jonathan Kellerman

Deception (Alex Delaware, #25)Deception by Jonathan Kellerman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My doctor has me out of work for a few days (nothing serious, I don’t think), so I finished this book last night.

Another fun story from Mr. Kellerman, another murder solved by LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis and Dr. Alex Delaware.

Kellerman’s pretty good at pointing fingers, as Milo and Alex consider possible suspects to the murder of a teacher/tutor at a fancy prep school. And there’s always one or two higher ranking LAPD cops just waiting to make wisecracks about Milo’s sexuality, question Delaware’s presence in the investigation, and take the credit when the murder’s been solved.

It looks like the teacher killed herself, but she left behind a DVD naming three colleagues who sexually harassed her, warning that if anything happens to her, it’s these folks who are to blame. In addition, the teacher was found in her bathtub, her body packed in with dry ice. Not easy for the dead person to do!

So–it looks like murder.

And there are plenty of suspects–her smarmy boyfriend, colleagues, and prep school students (most of them filthy rich, with powerful parents).

Milo and Dr. Delaware do not disappoint in this story, as they follow the clues and try to figure out what happened.

A fun, easy read!

  2. You were given a few days of medical leave? Hope it's not serious and you are feeling better.

    It's been quite some time since I drop by. How have you been my good friend?

    I've been very busy in Singapore crossing swords with our civil servants. 😀


  3. Thanks, Cloudia! I'm feeling better.


  4. ECL, thanks for stopping by! I'm doing okay, got some tummy problems. My doctor doesn't think it's serious.
