Inhaltsangabe zu „Victims“ von Jonathan Kellerman

Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware returns in this ingenious and breathtakingly good psychological thriller. Not since Jack the Ripper has there been such a gruesome crime scene. One look at the victim's apartment turned charnel house is enough for Milo Sturgis to summon The Crime Reader. But even Alex Delaware's skills may be stymied when more slayings occur in the same ghastly fashion...with no apparent connection between them. The only clue left behind - a blank page bearing a question mark - seems to be both a menacing taunt and a cry for help from a killer baffled by his own lethal urges. This one will haunt The Crime Reader's waking life, and his darkest dreams, long after its end. (Quelle:'E-Buch Text/01.03.2012')

Der Mann zwischen den Wänden

Toller Erzählstil. Jedoch verliert sich das Erzählte in einem atmosphärisch dichtem Meer aus Absurditäten, für die mir die Fantasie fehlt.

    After having been slightly disappointed by the last two Jonathan Kellerman books I’ve read, this one was un-putawayable! I was sucked into the case right at the beginning, and it didn’t let me go until the very end. Don’t get me wrong. It’s still not an action-packed thriller with wild car chases, bullets flying left, right and center, the heroes make leap after leap with hardly any clue, and where everything runs smoothly and thinking doesn’t matter. They get there. Gradually. And the clues and leads don’t actually jump them; they really need to work things out. That’s what I love so much about (most) Jonathan Kellerman books. To me it still felt more fast-paced than the two books I’ve read before. The only problem for me was the ending itself. *SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER* I mean it!!! If you don’t want to get spoiled, go away now!!! SPOILER: It was way to abrupt for a case like that. And a bit anticlimactic. Plus, I felt a bit “left hanging”. I mean, yes, he tells you the follow-up, but… just in a few sentences, you know? The whole hoohah is dealt with over the course of about 5 pages, or something. That’s not enough. Seriously. That’s not enough. I didn’t really care much for Harrie Pittford (or whatever his name was), because serial-rapist-killers are – sadly enough – more or less so “common” these days, that they’re not that interesting anymore (Which IN NO WAY means that they shouldn’t be severely punished for their crimes!), but I really wanted to know more about Grant and what makes him tick. Because I don’t understand! I mean, I’m not sure there IS anything to understand or if it could really be explained, but the (most probably) ever-existing question is still: was he born like that or did someone/something external make him like that? Was he really Kevin-like, like Alex explains a few pages into the book? What made him take the “next step” to actually kill his mother instead of staying with “just” small animals? Plus, I was utterly fascinated with the fact that Grant didn’t even stop when it concerned himself! He asked first Alex and then Milo, if he “could see” his shot foot! Hello? It must have hurt like hell getting ones toe shot off, but the guy didn’t even blink and just wanted to see the hurt foot – out of pure curiosity! I would really have loved a “talk” between Grant, Alex and Milo, just to see the side of such a killer. Alex might not be sure he wants answers, but I sure as hell do! And we don’t get any. At all. And that’s just not enough. Not for me, anyway. Hence four stars, not five.
