"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "In this run-of-the-mill police procedural from bestseller Kellerman, his 23rd novel to feature L.A. consulting psychologist Alex Delaware (after Compulsion), high school miscreant Chance Brandt has been assigned to perform community service at the Bird Marsh, a nature sanctuary near Marina del Rey. After Chance dismisses as a prank an anonymous phone call warning him that there's a corpse buried in the marsh, Lt. Milo Sturgis, now 'Special Case Investigator' for the LAPD, and Sturgis's team find four bodies there, all women missing their right hand. When Sturgis identifies one of the victims as Selena Bass, who worked as a piano teacher for the wealthy Vander family, the police focus on Travis Huck, the manager of the Vanders' Pacific Palisades estate, as the prime suspect because Travis has a criminal past. Kellerman fans wanting more of the same should be satisfied, though Sturgis gets less benefit from Delaware's psychological expertise than usual." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review A Day" by , "As I read Bones, Jonathan Kellerman's 23rd Alex Delaware novel in 23 years, I reflected on where Kellerman fits in the cosmos of best-selling crime writers. He's not as good or serious a writer as Michael Connelly, George Pelecanos or others at the top of the heap, nor is he as deplorable as James Patterson and his imitators. Kellerman belongs somewhere in the middle, not far from John Sandford. I prefer Sandford's books, but both are skillful writers who apply their talents to mass-market entertainment. That means giving us jazzed-up cop novels that often feature dumb jokes, lurid sex, spoiled rich girls, arch dialogue and way too much cute. That's the difference between the best and the rest: The best writers, favoring art over commerce, don't do cute." (read the entire Washington Post Book World review)
"Synopsis" by , In #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author Kellerman's new Alex Delaware novel, the psychologist-sleuth follows a grisly trail of bones to a devious and malevolent killer.
