Breakdown Alex Delaware #31Silence surrounding it When the body of a second actress turns up with the same mysterious cause of death Delaware and Sturgis start to wonder is this a copycat case or a coincidence When they uncover the death of another actress a star from another era who vanished decades ago never to be found they realize they’re facing one of their most baffling mind bending cases ye This is Alex Delaware #31 now – that is an incredible body of work especially when you look at the standard throughout – ok there has been the occasional dip but for the most part these have been engaging intriguing and brilliant reads Breakdown being no exceptionI’m hugely fond of these characters – Alex Milo et al And each different mystery brought to the doorstep of our dynamic duo has its own dark underbelly and different way of getting to the reader In the case of Breakdown a child is missing a child who is already vulnerable by virtue of having a disturbed mother – but as ever there is a lot to it than thatI like Jonathan Kellermans own uniue writing style very much – he uses what I call pragmatic prose to draw you in and keep you turning the pages He still manages to surprise he still manages to add layers to characters you would think to know off by heart by now Not everyone could pull off a series of this length and keep it at such a high calibre but somehow he doesOverall then I’d recommend this as much as I do every other Delaware novel – that is very highlyYou can pick up any of them and enjoy it in case you are gulping at the thought of 31 books and have not yet started just pick one and dive in if you fancy giving them a go I’m also a fan of Faye and Jesse Kellerman hopefully I have many a happy read ahead of me from this very talented bunch
