While this was an entertaining read with mastermind Alex Delaware, it did not keep me on the edge of my seat. With wild speculations and a plodding intrigue, this books takes the reader in the world of eccentric movie stars who have more charisma than brains. I did enjoy the dynamic between Milo and Alex, as well as the incremental logic, but the buildup was predictable and as such, the story could have been shortened for more dramatic effect. ( )

Enjoyed the story and although the end was not really surprising, it did keep me interested throughout the story. In the beginning it seems unrelated items present that couldn't possibly fit together but you learn later that they do... and they don't. Aside from the main characters (Dr. Delaware and Milo) I didn't find most of the other characters very likeable but overall, it was a nice story. ( )

Excellent addition to the Alex Delaware series. Alex has become the central character again, starting with being called to assist with a pregnant woman's discovery a dead baby buried decades ago in her recently purchased backyard. Shortly thereafter, another baby and a woman are discovered in different spots in a nearby park in the ritzy neighborhood. Unclear whether or not the two are related because only the baby's bones are found while the woman was shot execution style, Alex begins his obsessive investigation. The bodies seem to be tied to a recluse Hollywood couple, who are quite powerful and inaccessible. Yet, Alex manages to approach and befriend the wife with his easy going manner, helping her deal with his philandering, stupid husband's utter disdain for their four adopted children. Alex and Milo finally unravel a horror show. ( )

Like most of Kellerman's novels. It looks absolutely hopeless for about 250 pages and then it races quickly to a fast conclusion where all the pieces come together in the last 50 pages.
No psychologist any good is going to have time to do this much unbillable investigating. ( )
  Jeff_Simms | Jun 9, 2021 |
Guilt is a tragic whodunit story that takes place in present time Los Angeles. From the beginning of the story the author established a pace that is continued throughout the story. The characters and places are described enough to be believable. There is a beginning, middle and an end that ties up all of the loose ends. A highly recommended book to read that would make a good movie. ( )
