Would you try another book from Jonathan Kellerman and/or Alexander Adams?
Absolutely. This was only my second JK book. I started with When the Bough Breaks and plan on listening to the entire series. I really enjoy Adams' narrations.
Has Blood Test turned you off from other books in this genre?
Nah. It was pretty rough, content wise, but I feel that makes books more interesting. It's a psychological thriller - I am not expecting to read about regular old murder.
What about Alexander Adams’s performance did you like?
He has a great pace in story telling. He isn't overly dramatic, yet he still gets the inflection for each character just right.
Any additional comments?
The reason I rated this one so low, is because Kellerman doesn't explain enough. When listening, I kept rewinding or going back a chapter because I thought I had missed pieces of the puzzle. All of a sudden Delaware is making proclamations that are out of left field. It was so choppy that I actually thought I had purchased the abridged version. In any thriller/mystery, especially psychological, I want time to think about what may be happening - I appreciated this in When the Bough Breaks - each step was logical and tied together. In Blood Test, it felt as though Kellerman wasn't able to generate the story to lead-up to his conclusion, so he throws it all together in a monologue in the next-to-last chapter. I was riding in my car completely baffled and confused, truly feeling as though I skipped to the second part of the book.

Loved it, like all the Alex Delaware stories. Would definitely recommend for mystery and suspense lovers.
