When the Bough Breaks book.

When the Bough Breaks book. Alex may offer the occasional psychological insight, but often there's no credible reason for him to be involved in the investigation and even the casual reader understands that no police department would tolerate a civilian like Alex playing such a prominent role in a homicide investigation. That may well be unjustified nitpicking, especially since I continue to enjoy these books.

When the Bough Breaks is a mystery novel by Jonathan Kellerman. It is the first novel in the Alex Delaware series. Dr. Morton Hander practiced a strange brand of psychiatry. Among his specialties were fraud, extortion and sexual manipulation. Hander paid for his sins when he was brutally murdered in his luxurious Pacific Palisades apartment.

His death was an equally symbolic gesture of repentance.

The last thing I wanted to hear about was murder. Milo followed me like a lumbering shadow, opened the refrigerator and took out a plate of cold pizza that I had no recollection of ever owning. He tailed me back to the living room, collapsed on my old leather sofa-an artifact of the abandoned office on Wilshire-balanced the plate on his thigh and stretched out his legs.

This was my first novel by this author. It kept me interested enough to read on and see if they would catch the strange band of pedophiles. I was appalled with the subject matter of this crime so found myself skimming and hurrying through to get the villains caught. Since Alex Delaware is a psychologist and not a policeman, it was odd in some ways how he was brought into the case by his policeman friend, Milo, but Alex seems like a likable protagonist with his sidekick, Milo, so I plan to read on and see how future cases go.

Jonathan Kellerman's mastery of the English language is superb! As an English major and writer myself, I admire his original and imaginative similes and metaphors. Unfortunately, the plot of this book contains many characters, several of which have last names beginning with the letter "H." The plot is also convoluted and sometimes becomes muddy. I have read some of his later books, and they seem tighter.

The traumatizing sight of a dead body in his office, an apparent suicide, prompts pediatric psychologist Alex Delaware to retire prematurely at the age of thirty-three. A successful real estate investor, he has the resources to support a more than comfortable lifestyle and is determined to forsake the frenzied professional life he’d previously led. Then LAPD detective Milo Sturgis surfaces in his life again — it was he who investigated the suicide in Alex’s office — and he is drawn into collaborating with Sturgis in investigating a horrific double murder. Reluctantly at first, then with increasing determination, Alex devotes his time, his psychological insight, and his considerable intelligence to rooting out the truth behind the murder . . . and nearly loses his life in the process.

Not just psychology but engaging style, too

Himself an accomplished psychologist, Kellerman clearly knows his stuff when it comes to his field. The signs are all there in When the Bough Breaks. Still, it’s little wonder that he turned to writing fiction even while persisting in his career in psychology. Anyone who can write passages like the following really ought to be a novelist: “His eyes were pale, almost without color. I’d seen eyes like that before. On mullet, packed in ice.” Or, again, in describing blood as “the ruby syrup of life.” I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult to resist the humor in this sort of writing.

Enjoyed following Alex on his own again as he was in Blood Test. Always tough to put down but I don't want the time with these good guys to go by too fast!
The extent of these "men's" crimes is the worst of the worst, we all know it happens. I have to say that I can do without comments and narrative by these soulless people in the book. We all get the gist, extra sensitive details are not necessary.
It won't stop me from reading, because even though there is bad in the world, good guys win in the end...always

This is the first book in the Alex Delaware series by Jonathan Kellerman. I stumbled onto Kellerman after reading one of his newer books and didn't realize that he had a series! I am so excited because I had just finished reading through John King's books and was looking for a new author. This book is from a couple decades ago but it will not disappoint! If you like murder, mystery, suspense and enjoy thinking you've figured the end out and being proven wrong, You'll love this book!

This is the first of the Alex Delaware series and it got me hooked. I continued to read the other 29 as fast as I could and loved every one of them, so much so that I've started reading them again beginning with this book.

Love Alex Delaware stories. Lov Milo too. Never got to read them in order. Now I able to. They are all great mystery stories, but the characters take them above the everyday. One thing, though, I also got the narration. This belongs in audible I suppose, but the voice belongs to Milo more then Alex.

The descriptions are all done very well. Better than I could write them. Some sensitive issues are dealt with, but are handled with class and as much dignity as a book like this can be expected. It is a suspense thriller after all and I loved the ride. Kellerman is a top-notch story teller.
I have read all of the Alex Delaware novels and so has my husband. This is the first of those and is a wonderful read. The characters are fleshed out perfectly and the plot will keep yyou turning the page. I am not going to review the rest of his books, because it would be the same. Terrific, wonderful, a real page turner, you will fall in love with the characters, etc. Once you read the first one, you will want to read them all. Jonathan Kellerman is a terrific writer and brings his background to good use in all of his books. I have been pre-ordering his books for awhile now so I make sure to have a copy as soon as they come out. Do yourself a favor, read this one to start and then read the rest in order. You won't regret it. The only thing you might regret is finding shelf space for all of these books! If you can order the Kindle edition (I have only the most recent book on Kindle, the rest are hardbacks!) and they take up much less space. While I was waiting for a new book to be written I went back and re-read the entire series again! That is how good they are!
