"Deception" by Jonathan Kellerman: 4 stars
As a basic detective mystery, I enjoyed it. The plot had plenty of twists and turns that kept me from guessing the killer. Just when you think it is one kind of murder mystery, things change and you start to think it is something else and then it changes again. That kept things interesting.
The book didn't have as strong a sense of place as previous novels in the series, but I did learn a new architectual term -- dingbat. When an apartment building was described as being a dingbat, I had to go online to see what kind of building that was -- and it must be a fairly California type because I've never seen anything like that in Minnesota.
I hope Kellerman brings back more psychological aspects to future books in the series, but at least it was an interesting and entertaining read.
I got this book from the library. Support your local library!
