really liked it

Jonathan Kellerman has thus given his another shot with the release of Deception, a detective novel with solid plot, perfect timing and good vocabulary. This novel is a blend of mysteries, thrillers, unique similes and metaphors. The novel engrosses the reader's mind as the play moves along... it's a page turner. The characters are old and hence never fail to entertain your mode of mind. The twist and turn in ever page compels you to bite your nails. An absorbing series though with slow going in pace, it has turned out to be as well written as his last piece. Jonathan tries to represent the true behavior of mankind and that is what I like about him. He tries to portray characters with logic which can be seen in Elise Freeman as she cries for help year-and-a-half long. The girl was battered both emotionally and physically and deprived of soul from body.

The monstrous work of the sadist tormentor will definitely bring goosebumps. Alex and Milo's search for predators for their heinous work displays the darkest side of human compulsion. I was not only touched but am still like in a hangover of the brutal murder and the ugly work of the monsters.

Hope to get some more good work from Jonathan in the near future with such clarity of thought and psychological suspense.
