Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Kellerman writes unforgettable tales of crime and detection that expose the shadowy side of glittering Los Angeles. And in Evidence, listeners are once again in the dexterous grip of a master storyteller and stylist equally skilled at teasing your brain and taking your breath away.In the half-built skeleton of a monstrously vulgar mansion in one of L.A.'s toniest neighborhoods, a watchman stumbles on the bodies of a young couple - murdered in flagrante and left in a gruesome postmortem embrace. Though he's cracked some of the city's worst slayings, veteran homicide cop Milo Sturgis is still shocked at the grisly sight: a twisted crime that only Milo's killer instincts - and psychologist Alex Delaware's keen insights - can hope to solve.While the female victim's identity remains a question mark, her companion is ID'd as eco-friendly architect Desmond Backer, who disdains the sort of grandiose superstructure he's found dead in. And the late Mr. Backer, it's revealed, was also notorious for his power to seduce women.The rare exception is his ex-boss, Helga Gemein, who's as indifferent to Desmond's death as she apparently was to his advances. Though Milo and Alex place her on their short list of suspects, the deeper they dig for clues the longer the list grows. An elusive prince who appears to harbor decidedly American appetites, an eccentric blueblood with an ax to grind, one of Desmond's restless ex-lovers and her cuckolded husband - all are in the homicidal mix spiced with eco-terrorism, arson, blackmail, conspiracy, and a vendetta that runs deep. But when the investigation veers suddenly in a startling direction, it's the investigators who may wind up on the wrong end of a cornered predator's final fury.

Good book... but

Not the best Kellerman. While it has Milo and Alex together, there is so little personal interaction between both men and their significant others, that it is purely an evidence chase. Not enough of the guys' personalities and various problems and pecadillos as in others. It's good, especially if you know the history. For someone reading this series for the first time, this is not the one to start with.

Boring and an irritating narrator

I had to force myself to finish this book. A narrator can make all the difference. I found his Very Strong NY accent irritating and distracting. I would have enjoyed the book more with another narrator. The book itself wasn't bad but not worth using a credit. I generally like Kellerman but can't recommend this one. If you like a very basic mystery and don't mind the narrator, you might enjoy this one.
