Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

Kellerman devises a psychologically complex, highly satisfying plot in this latest mystery (after Time Bomb ) to feature child psychologist Alex Delaware, although we wait too long for the best parts and although Delaware, his love life on hold, seems less emotionally present than in previous cases. Harvard-bound, 18-year-old heiress Melissa Dickinson, whom Delaware had successfully treated for anxiety 10 years earlier, calls him with concerns about leaving her wealthy mother, an agoraphobe. Years before Melissa's birth, Gina Dickinson Ramp had been disfigured by acid thrown for never-revealed reasons by a former lover, now out of prison and back in town. Widowed for many years, recently remarried and making progress in her own intensive therapy with a noted husband-and-wife team of behaviorial psychologists, Gina is still fragile. When she disappears, Melissa enlists Delaware's help and that of his friend, Milo Sturgis, on leave from the LAPD (for having slugged, on TV, a homophobic superior). Kellerman deftly handles the strings of his plot, keeping in question the plight of Gina and the identities of those wishing her ill, until final events make what came before seem inevitable. A brief reunion with his former lover Robin will leave readers hoping for a reconciliation in Delaware's next appearance. 150,000 first printing; major ad/promo.

I read the "hype" on the book jacket and thought that this book would eventually get better. It didn't. Three quarters of the book draged on and on. Finally the action picked up at the end but I really didn't care at that point. Perhaps if I were into psychiatry I would have found this book more interesting.

Private Eyes was the second book of the Delaware series I read. I thought it started out a little slower then the first book I read (bad love) but it kept me reading. It makes a person realize how much children can know with out an adult realizing it. I enjoyed the book but I was a little dissapointed with the ending. I have realized after reading 4 of the Delaware books, that Kellerman writes in a gradual slope and really catches the reader at the top of the hill and gradually leads them down the other side of the hill, breathless. I thought it was one of Kellerman's easier books to read with the technical lingo. Be prepared to loose sleep getting this one read! It is a non-stop read!

HASH(0x8ed17204) von 5 Sternen fresh life into the series 5. Februar 2003
Von RachelWalker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Nine years ago, Alex Delaware successfully treated Melissa Dickinson, a tormented and phobic young girl, irrationally scared of almost everything. After two years of treatment, Melissa seems almost totally recovered, so her need for Dr Delaware ceases, and she becomes one of his most spectacular triumphs. Now, Melissa contacts Alex again, this time seeking advice concerning her mother. Gina Dickinson is a recluse, an ex-actress hiding away from the world ever since a vicious acid attack that left her scarred for life, even after extensive and traumatic plastic surgery. Even though Gina is now seeing, with some effect, a psychiatrist of her own, Melissa wants to know if Alex feels her mother could cope if she went away, accepting her place Harvard. Then, one day, Gina inexplicably climbs into her car, and drives off into thin air, leaving a tangled mystery to be unravelled in her wake.
I had started to think that this series was in danger of going stale. The prose is adequate and easy to read, but hardly full of spirit and at times seems a little perfunctory, and Alex Delaware has also remained a rather static - if very likeable - character. But now, after reading Kellerman's excellent standalone "The Butcher's Theatre", I returned to the series with "Private Eyes", and found it a wonderfully invigorating experience. This may be his lone of his longest Delaware books to date, but every word is fascinating, and there seems to me to be fresh fire in the writing. The characters are all very well developed, and although Kellerman never really takes any risks with his well-structured plot, it's a complex and clever book that really kicks the brain into gear, and presents one or two nice surprises along the way.
The psychology is dead-on, the relationships are all fascinating, the characterisation is acute, and the resolution is exciting, well-done, and satisfying. This may well turn out to be the rock of the Delaware series. To find out, i shall have to read on...

HASH(0x8ed1981c) von 5 Sternen Slow but sure 6. Juni 2012
Von Michael D. Zorn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is definitely not a Vince Flynn novel. It's a character study of people in and around a wealthy, practically dysfunctional family.

Kellerman is a clinical psychologist, as well as writer. This is the first of the Alex Delaware series I've read. Delaware is also a psychologist, specializing in child psychology. He's sort of a Sherlock Holmes figure - working from data and facts, in this book, gathered by Milo Sturgis, a helpful detective who can actually go follow people and ask questions.

You can read the reviews and summaries here at Amazon. This book is clearly not for everyone's taste. Almost nothing happens until about the middle of the book. Up till then, we find out about the main characters, the supporting characters, the good guys and the bad guys. And sometimes it's hard to figure out who the Bad Guys are - there are clues along the way, and things gradually reveal themselves, like layers of an onion peeling away.

Things start to come together about 3/4 of the way through. They get complicated: too many people turn out not to be exactly what they seemed earlier.

I really think psychologists would like this one, because of the character (and phobia) development. I found it interesting enough to keep going, even when the going got a bit slow.

HASH(0x8ed17d68) von 5 Sternen These eyes need Visine... 9. März 2003
Von Mark Wagenschutz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After eight different tries with Kellerman, I removed him from my "authors to read" list. Then a friend gave me Private Eyes and I thought I'd give him another shot. 525 pages later, I haven't changed my mind. Private Eyes is extremely slow going, and if not for my need to finish every book I start, I would have gladly given the book back without reaching the very disappointing ending.
Alex Delaware is called by a former child patient after nine years. He is drawn into a severly dysfunctional family with secrets galore, a missing person, her former attacker now free from prison, greedy bankers and lawyers, odd-ball psychiatrists - all of whom could be guilty of the possible kidnapping/murder...if there was actually a kidnapping/murder. With his loyal minion Milo Sturgis, Delaware tries to untangle the intricate web Kellerman weaves for the reader. Great premise.
Unfortunately, what I found was more of Kellerman's verbose writing style in which he goes to great length to describe the highways and byways that Delaware takes to go to wherever he's going. I realize in reading other reviews, many readers enjoy Kellerman. Beyond Billy Straight and Survival of the Fittest, I can't say I'm in that same group of fans.

HASH(0x8ed1c9f0) von 5 Sternen A GREAT psychological thriller! 24. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Hörkassette
This was the second of many book I have read by Jonathan Kellerman, and is

the best to date. Kellerman shows his expertise in psychology and suspense in this

page turner. I could not put this book down, and
lost a lot of sleep trying to finish

it. You'll learn more about a phobic personality than
you ever thought possible, and

you'll have a great time doing it. Tou may have your
own list of suspects by the end,

but you'll never figure this ending out!!<BR

HASH(0x8ed1c780) von 5 Sternen Gotta love Milo. 20. Juni 2006
Von D. M. Annunziata - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This one starts with Dr. Alex Delaware getting a call from a young woman he treated years ago. Eleven years ago, Melissa Dickenson was a bright, precocious 7 year old girl afraid of everything - a result of growing up with a severely agoraphobic mother. Her mother Gina had been a beautiful actress when a heinous attack left her permanently disfigured and scared of the world - she hasn't left her house since. Little Melissa had to grow up fast to help care for her mother, but she grew up in a loving home none-the-less. Now, nine years after leaving treatment, she's a beautiful young woman herself, about to embark on her own life's adventure, except her mother's attacker is out of prison and back in town. She is desperate for help and Alex can't say no.

Detective Milo Sturgis is about half way through a six month suspension from the LAPD and he's going stir crazy. That's why he really can't resist when his pal Alex pleads for assistance. The free-lancing detective work is good for Milo - he makes some good contacts and gets to flex his deductive muscles, gets to step on some PD toes (always fun). But Gina vanishes and as Milo and Alex dig, they discover a trail of other disappearances as well as several possible deaths. Everyone has a possible motive and yet, no one has a possible motive - it's a real mystery.

Linda, the school principal, is back in Texas caring for her ailing father, leaving Alex to fend for himself. He reconnects with Robin - as friends - will they get back together? And the fish get some action too! Another great book with plenty of Milo this time. There's a scene in which Alex kind of ticks off Milo. The big guy gets genuinely angry and Alex is surprised to find himself scared. After all these years, he is actually afraid of his good friend - comments that he now knows how a suspect feels. Yeah, and of course Alex walks into a dangerous situation - again - almost gets himself killed - again. The climax is a bit of a surprise, though - bet you won't figure it out.
