?hrlicher Psychopath unter höchster Bewachung einsitzt der mit Medikamenten voll gepumpte Ardis »Monster« Peake Dessen Stammeleien scheinen den Mord This is my first Jonathan Kellerman book He has been on my TBR list for some time but I was slow to get to him because I am reading so many other series I am in the midst of Andrew Vachss Sara Paretsky Loren Estleman Michael Connolly Scott Turow Karin Slaughter George Pelecanos and probably a few that I am not remembering right now Monster is the thirteenth book in the twenty eight book Alex Delaware series that began in 1981 and is still ongoing I am starting in the middle with the first several books being hard to find Number thirteen just happens to be the first I have of the series Just by chance No special reasoningKellerman doesn’t waste any time getting to his first social issue leaving both the right and the left to lick their festering wounds It was a strange time to build a new hospital State asylums for the retarded and the harmlessly psychotic were being closed down in rapid succession courtesy of an odd coldhearted alliance between right wing misers who didn’t want to spend the money and left wing ignoramuses who believed psychotics were political prisoners and deserved to be liberated A few later a “homeless problem” would appear shocking the deacons of thrift and the social engineers but at the time dismantling an entire inpatient system seemed a clever thing to do With Jonathan Kellerman you expect some psychiatric education via Alex Delaware the narrator and you get it a lot of itBut take away the violence and you didn’t have serenity What remained were what psychiatrists labeled the negative symptoms of psychosis apathy flat mood deadened voice blunted movement impoverished thinking language stripped of nuance and humor An existence devoid of surprise and joy Sounds like a drugged life Or maybe it is better called an existence Plenty of theories from Alex based on his knowledge of psychology and psychiatry He already had twelve books under his beltExcuse me if I bore you for a few minutes Remember this is my first date with Alex so everything is new to me You know how new relationships can be so exciting that way So the book starts out being about two kind of grisly murders One is a cold case and the other just happened The murders are described just enough so you get the grisly message but little detail beyond that They may or may not be related Milo and Alex scope things out There is a lot of talking and hardly any action They visit a psychiatric hospital full of murderers who are tamed by illness and medication Then they go to the home of the recently murdered woman The house is literally practically empty with an empty living room with uncarpeted hardwood floors and a bedroom with a dresser and a mattress and box spring on the floor Strange for a woman who makes a reasonable amount of money Lots of talking as they wander through the house Then Alex goes home and out to dinner with his wife and there is uite a bit of shop talk about the cases with the wife posing lots of possibilities that might explain what Alex has observed He has been hinting at romance and she promises him some action when they get home Can’t hardly contain yourself can you? Well the interesting thing is that I am reading another book simultaneously Ship of Fools So the two books are stacked together on the coffee table Every time I sit down to read I pick up this Kellerman mystery So he must have grabbed my attention than Katherine Anne Porter has Should I be embarrassed?Action happens finally The first action is a flashback of the killing spree of the title character of the book The second is a visit with this character in his room at the mental hospital for homicidal psychotics That action consists of the apparently futile attempt to communicate with the “Monster” and the action is in facial and body movements You will have to read it for yourself to see how this rates as action But just when I think that the action may go on for a while the story goes back to talking to people in person and on the phone I do find the numerous psychological tidbits interesting if not action packed This might be a friendly informal Abnormal Psych 201 course if my “sieve for brain” could actually file away the bits for possible future use I am going to pay attention to see if Alex is so erudite in his personal conversations when he is not on the job I will watch to see how he talks with his wife in bedEven Milo can get warn out by all the talking He massaged his temples “Okay okay enough talk I need to do something I put in calls to Miami and Pimm Nevada this morning When we get back I’ll see if anyone called Milo doesn’t want to spend so much time speculating with Alex and thinks of people calling him back as action That is the truth about this book at the beginning It is mostly talking and thinking Making a phone call is action I don’t have much experience yet with mysteries so maybe they commonly start slowly with the author planting bulbs building up details and clues and then eventually it comes bursting into bloom You don’t run into too many characters named Milo So here we have a co star with that name I couldn’t stop thinking about “The Adventures of Milo and Otis” the 1986 film that was turned into a book Was Milo the dog or the cat? Now there was a story with action from beginning to end as I recallI am not allowed to tell you how this book ends There are definitely some events that got my adrenalin pumping and it ends with a bang And I guess it is fair to say that the hero lives to analyze another day You know that because you have the next book in the series waiting for you to read I am looking forward to reading of Jonathan Kellerman I am still trying to figure out how he is called a consultant when he follows the detective around like a shadow It is true he is offering theories pretty much nonstop but he gets his hands dirty too I wonder how he decides what is a billable hour? I am going to resist the temptation to give Monster five stars I have to read a few Alex Delaware mysteries to decide if he really deserves that high praise Besides I am still feeling guilty that I am reading mysteries instead of literature But giving it four stars is easy to do I am left with the inebriating uestion of how many celebratory single malt scotches Milo can put away in a mere four pages Maybe he heard that detectives in crimemysterythriller books are supposed to drink
