Anglais MOTIVE (édition en anglais)

À propos

The #1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman writes razor-sharp novels that cut to the quick. Now comes Motive, which pits psychologist Alex Delaware and homicide cop Milo Sturgis against a vicious criminal mind--the kind only Kellerman can bring to chilling life. Even having hundreds of closed cases to his credit cant keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonizing over the crimes that dont get solved--and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end--one even Alex Delawares expert insight cant explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case--because theres always a next one. This time the victim is Ursula Corey: a successful, attractive divorcée whos been gunned down--not a robbery but an execution, a crime that smacks of simple, savage revenge. And along with that theoretical motive come two strong contenders for the role of perp: the dead womans business partner/ex-husband and her divorce lawyer/secret lover. But just as Alex and Milo think theyre zeroing in on the most likely suspect, a bizarre new clue stirs up eerie echoes of the unsolved Hennepin murder. And the discovery of yet another crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the specter of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulative and cunning madness. Dont miss the excerpt of Jonathan Kellermans The Murderers Daughter in the back of the book! Praise for Motive In Kellermans capable hands, the journey is as much a pleasure as arriving at the destination. Theres the interplay between old friends Delaware and Sturgis, the exploration of L.A. environs, and the omnipresent food, which briefly dulls the appetite of even well-padded Sturgis. This thirtieth in the series is one of the best. -- Booklist The crafty plot of Edgar-winner Kellermans thirtieth novel featuring L.A. psychologist Alex Delaware will even keep genre veterans guessing. . . . The twists are both shocking and logical, and the byplay between the leads entertaining. -- Publishers Weekly Praise for Jonathan Kellerman Jonathan Kellermans psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix. --Los Angeles Times A master of the psychological thriller. --People The combination of Alex Delaware [and] Detective Milo Sturgis . . . makes for the most original whodunit duo since Watson and Holmes. --Forbes
