Book Review: ‘Serpentine: An Alex Delaware Novel’ By Jonathan Kellerman

by | Jan 31, 2021 | Books | 0 comments

Alex Delaware is asked to help with buddy LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis on a cold case from 36 years ago. Milo is not happy about having this case but strings were pulled to get it re-opened and looked at. Dorothy Swoboda’s body was found burned in a car below Mulholland Drive all those years ago. The request came from her 39-year old daugher Ellie. As Milo and Alex start their investigation, it leads to many people they can interview, other dead people that may be connectected to this case. With not much to go on, the duo slowly find clues that may lead them to solve this cold case.

Another solid Alex Delaware from author Jonathan Kellerman. The best part of the book is the bromance between Alex and Milo, with plenty of LOL moments and a real chemistry between the two. This is book number 36 in the series and it’s as good as any of the previous 35.

You can pick up Serpentine in stores on Tuesday, February 2nd from Ballantine.
