If You Like Jonathan Kellerman

  • If You Like Jonathan Kellerman

“Jonathan Kellerman’s bestselling mystery series features Alex Delaware, a psychologist and consultant to the L.A. Police Department who uses his understanding of the psychological motivations of the villains to solve cases. Not particularly fast-paced, these are complex, suspenseful stories that are more investigative than action-oriented. Kellerman’s bleak and threatening L.A. plays an important role, as do the psychological details of mental illnesses and their treatment. Kellerman has written other stand-alone and series mysteries, often in collaboration with family members, as well as nonfiction titles on psychology.” NoveList Description
