Compulsion (Alex Delaware, #22) by Jonathan Kellerman
Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Oct 29, Lewis Weinstein rated it liked it Shelves: crime-and-thrillers. Another quite readable psychological adventure with Dr. Delaware and Milo. Enough turns and twists to keep the pages turning, but not enough to create the edge of prior books in this series. Jul 04, Jerry B rated it it was ok. Mediocre outing -- even JK seems tired of our buddy Alex!
enter We've read every single Alex Delaware novel, so are big fans, well-informed about this series. What started out great - the child psychologist by profession who consults with the police; specifically Milo Sturgis, a gay, very interesting, and persistent homicide cop; on murders where the police feel they need a consultant's help - has resolved into little more than two detective buddies, one paid, the other an amateur hardly more skillful Mediocre outing -- even JK seems tired of our buddy Alex!
Alex joins Milo seemingly whenever he wants presumably being paid at premium consultants' rates , often as little more than a pastime, not because his skills are pertinent, which is pretty far-fetched in terms of the state of most public budgets! His relationship with live-in girlfriend Robin, always an on-again, off-again, "affair", barely gets a nod herein, with a silly custom musical instrument buyer paying too much attention to her a lame attempt at stalker suspense, resolved equally poorly in our opinion.
Meanwhile, the excuse for the plot, a serious of murders involving luxury autos, barely holds our attention, and while we plodded along to see whodunit, we hardly cared by the time we got there. To us, the series has run its course. While Milo per se is one of the more interesting police characters to come along over the last couple of decades, and while the original premise of Delaware's involvement was novel, there's virtually nothing left to excite or entertain us.
