  • This book could not be classified as a whodunit, but rather a whothoughtaboutit All they did was think And talk And talk some Boring Where s the action The tension This moved along slowly than a glacier sorry, Al Gore I used to be a big Kellerman fan, but his last two books just haven t lived up to his earlier works I don t think it s because he has introduced new characters, I think it s because he just types em up and sends em out I liked his other book where Detective Petra Connor took over [...]


  • I struggled with this So many characters to keep track of I just kept forgetting who was who I really liked the two main ones, Moe and Aaron but the plot was too much for me In the mix of sleaze and drugs and beatings and murder and prostitution the pace seemed very slow I liked the bit where Aaron saved a life won t spoil by describing but that section was the only bit that I found gripping I ve read lots and lots of Kellerman s earlier books but hadn t tried him again for a while If this is th [...]


  • Finished this, it s as good as the first book they were featured in, Bones Review PI Aaron Fox and L.A cop Moe Reed, interracial half brothers who played minor roles in 2008 s Bones, take center stage in bestseller Kellerman s routine 24th Alex Delaware novel When Fox, who used to work for the LAPD, looks into the missing persons case of 20 year old Caitlin Frostig, he runs into conflict with Reed The brothers end up pursuing some predictable lines of inquiry, checking out Rory Stoltz, Frostig s [...]


  • I wasn t too thrilled with this one Although it was a good story, I found it hard to follow on occasion and was bored by all the theories and conjecture the rambled on for pages.I ve read better by Kellerman.


  • Wow What a huge disappointment I had a horrible time remembering which brother was Moe and which was Aaron I remember having the same trouble in the last book when they were introduced Their brotherly conflict, while understandable, was boring to read about There was WAY too much detail about clothes they were wearing, their home, etc It didn t make me interested in them or the people they were looking to find and the crime s they were trying to solve Additionally, the story went in circles and [...]


  • I was disappointed in this book I couldn t find a character that I liked Moe Reed and Aaron Fox, half brothers that have a tenuous relationship and now they find they are both working the same cold case.The story revolves around the seamy side of Beverly Hills and the surrounding area, including drugs,prostitution, and murder Success has bred all kinds of nasty habits for those involved and the truth is there behind the locked gates for someone to find.


  • True, the pace can get slow now and then but sometimes, slow is good True, the brother s rivalry theme could have been better developed True, I am a new Kellerman reader True, I am somewhat surprised by the reviewers who find this novel either bland or too complex Why complex Is it because Kellerman intertwines the personal stories of the two brothers ironically called Moses and Aaron with the actual crime plot I say ironic because Moses is the one who enters the promised land, in this case a st [...]


  • I didn t like this detective story so much, probably because I didn t like the animosity between the main characters Both sons of policemen, we have Moses Reed, an up and coming homicide detective, serious minded, shy and unsure of himself, but strong and his half brother, charismatic Aaron Fox, a snazzy dresser who likes fine things, currently raking in the dough as a private eye who has quit the police department after ten years because he was tired of being penned up like some pet pony Moe ha [...]


  • I m fond of Jonathan Kellerman s books, but this one was a disappointment Generally, his books are well plotted with interesting well developed characters unusual spins on behavior that keep me absorbed in suspense I also really like his wife s books Faye Kellerman I enjoy the way they mix their LA characters into each other s worlds It makes the world of their LA real somehow.This book is okay, but just okay The characters are okay, the plot is okay, it s just kind of flat okay It feels perfun [...]


  • We met Moses Reed and Aaron Fox in a previous Alex Delaware book Moses and Aaron are brothers They share the same mother but different fathers who were police officers On the surface Moses and Aaron are completely different and have lost their way as brothers They become less stiff and trusting of each other as they look deeper in the disappearance of a college student.Caitlin Frostig seemly disappeared without a trace Her case has grown cold but is still open and still assigned to Moses Aaron [...]


  • A lot of readers didn t like this book because Milo Sturgis and Alex Delaware were peripheral But I really enjoyed the character development between the brothers, and thought their exchanges were fabulous The two are unique, and both have unique flaws, which is essential to recurring characters in mainstream mysteries crime stories Aaron Fox s wardrobe and current fad knowledge reminded me a lot of Spenser Robert B Parker , and made me wistful for those books I though the exploration of the huma [...]


  • In Jonathan Kellerman s True Detectives, a spinoff from the Alex Delaware mystery series, this story focused on two brothers who weren t cut from the same cloth Moses Reed, a LAPD detective, and Aaron Fox, a former cop turned PI and both shared a troubled family history in the line of law enforcement But the two of them come together to work on a most disturbing cold case of Caitlin Frostig, who disappeared years ago With the help of Milo and Alex, Moses and Aaron would crack open this case of t [...]


  • I have been a long time fan of Jonathan Kellerman s and have read all of his books I also enjoyed his son s books Jesse Kellerman and the 2 he has co written with his wife Faye.This story follows the half brothers Moses Reed LAPD and Aaron Fox private eye These 2 were introduced in JKs previous book I think their troubled relationship is fleshed out in the process of reluctantly teaming up to solve a couple of murder disappearance cases JKs usual protagonists Milo Sturgis and Alex Delaware have [...]


  • I listened to this book unabridged, and it was a big disappointment I couldn t believe how poor the writing was Some of the phrases used were downright juvenile For instance, it smelled like a snot filled nose Then there was the inordinate amount of time wasted on describing the way people were dressed I got the impression that the Author was just trying to fill up pages with words so he could pump out another best seller All of this would have been okay if the story was good, but it wasn t Ther [...]


  • Two brothers introduced in an earlier Alex Delaware book, get top billing in this story Moses and Aaron are half brothers through their mother, who have a strained relationship due to past family drama with their fathers Moses is a straight laced LA cop while Aaron is a biracial PI, and their personalities are very different, but they are thrown together to solve a case of a missing woman Delaware, Milo and Petra make welcome cameos but overall, the book didn t live up to it s Cain Abel potentia [...]


  • Possibly could have given this 4 stars for plotline, 3.5 is like it It s another mystery involving inimical half brothers DI Moses Reed and private investigator Aaron Fox The likeable Alex Delaware Milo Sturgis are only peripherally involved The mystery begins with the case of a girl s unsolved disappearance that follows Moses to his new job about the same time that Aaron is asked by a client who employs the girl s father to pursue the same inquiry Aaron contacts Moses to suggest they work tog [...]


  • This may be the first Kellerman book I ve abandoned if not it certainly has been a long time since I have done.Recently I ve been catching up on earlier entries to this series and found I had not read this book It seems to be about a team member Mo Reed and his early days While it may have been interesting further along in the story the beginning chapters were rather boring With so many other books on the nightstand pile I closed up and moved on Perhaps some day I ll finish it We ll see Phila


  • Another Kellerman, but not a Alex Delaware, although he does make an appearance, as does Milo and Blanche I was reluctant to read a non Alex book, but I am happy I did Both brothers act like asses, although I have to say, Moses the white brother is of an ass than Aaron the black brother, who is an ass in his own way, but way less of a jerk than Moses In the end you get a better understanding of both brothers, and their complicated relationship.


  • When I started this book in 2013, I had just read a bunch of Alex Delaware books so I was in the wrong frame of mind to read a Kellerman that wasn t Delaware I liked this book It moved well, the characters were thought out and real, story was plausible all worked well for me It is officially off the abandoned list


  • Really struggled to finish this book Without doubt the worst book I ve read in a long time This book goes from character to character without a coherent storyline and no build up at all and zero excitement, and inane details about what one of the main characters was wearing each time, so dull and boring.


  • Great readAnother great story by Kellerman Read while traveling and could not put it down The characters and story ine were well developed and interesting This story will not disappoint Easy read.


  • My favorite of all so far The Who done it s never stop and the ending is not what you d expect Love the characters and how they weave throughout his bovels Having rad the entire series in order has helped a lot as many of the characters appear across lines.


  • Very compelling read, very interesting detectives, but the issue that gets the story going does not get resolved quite to my satisfaction The only disappointment, though, so I will definitely delve some into Mr Kellerman s works.





  • Great bookIt held my interest to the endIt held my interest And surprise to find who the murderer wasOf the girl




  • Summary A missing girl A despondent father A case so cold that it is given to a newly transferred detective as a welcoming present The case concerns one Caitlyn Frostig who disappeared one night on her way back from her shift at a local bar No one saw her disappear She had no enemies and her boyfriend has an air tight alibi The case is a dead end on the surface at least until the employer of Caitlyn s father gets involved His employee is distracted by the disappearance of his daughter and that i [...]
