Book: Capital Crimes , by Jonathan Kellerman, Faye Kellerman, ISBN10: 034546799X, ISBN13: 9780345467997, Random House Publishing Group, September 2007, Mass Market Paperback
Child psychologist-turned-novelist Jonathan Kellerman uses his knowledge of the psyche's weaknesses to create chilling crime novels, many starring detective (and former child psychologist, natch) Alex Delaware and cop friend Milo Sturgis.
Two top-notch Kellerman mysteries for price of one. Joining forces for only the second time in their writing careers, bestselling spouses Jonathan and Faye deliver two choice novellas: "Thy Sister's Keeper" and "Music City Breakdown." Making background appearances in these whodunits are reader favorites Alex Delaware, Peter Decker, and Rina Lazarus.
The second collaboration by bestsellers Jonathan and Faye Kellerman (after Double Homicide) offers two thin novellas that dedicated fans will most appreciate. In the first, My Sister's Keeper, Faye Kellerman's LAPD detective Peter Decker makes an extended cameo role in an inquiry into the murder of an activist lesbian California state representative, Davida Grayson. Grayson, who was the focus of threats from politicians and members of the radical right opposed to her support for stem-cell research, is found shot to death in her Berkeley office; an uninspired pair of local police find that the dead woman's personal relationships, rather than her politics, may have motivated the killer. The second story, Music City Breakdown, gives Jonathan Kellerman's consulting psychologist, Alex Delaware, a little more to do after Nashville detectives probing the stabbing murder of recording artist Jack Jeffries learn that Delaware had been treating the dead man. The solution is as unsurprising as that of My Sister's Keeper. (Nov. 21) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
