When Alex Delaware takes on what appears to be a fairly straightforward custody case, he has no idea how everything will rapidly change.
The case involves warring sisters. One, Connie Sykes, is a pathologist with plenty of money, but a cold personality, while her sister Cherie seems downtrodden and potentially a disastrous mother, but with a sweetness that bodes well for her.
Alex’s findings reveal Cherie’s nurturing style and she retains custody of her daughter.
Suddenly everything turns into a bizarre series of murders and missing persons. Did Alex make a mistake with Cherie? Could she have gone on a murder spree and then disappeared?
Killer: An Alex Delaware Novel is replete with the intriguing investigations that Alex and his buddy Milo Sturgis usually enjoy, leading them along a series of wrong pathways until they finally discover something completely unexpected.
I always enjoy how the author shows us Alex’s thought patterns, his daily routines, and his relationship with long-time lover Robin. Milo’s quirks are also there in full force. A delightful read that earned 4.5 stars.
