City of the Dead

City of the Dead

It’s always a pleasure to ride along with psychologist Alex and LAPD detective Milo on one of their only-in-LA cases. City of the Dead, the 37th book in the Alex Delaware series, is no exception.

A pseudo-psychologist is found dead in her house with her throat slashed. Outside nearby a naked man is dead after crashing head-on into a moving van. Was the man the woman’s killer and the victim of an accident? Or did another person kill them both?

If you like your police procedurals with a bit of wit and a buddy movie feel, don’t miss this series. They can be read in any order so feel free to start with City of the Dead. It has an engaging plot, fully fleshed out characters, and a real LA feel. As a native, the beautiful but dirt-poor qualities of the residents ring totally true. 4.5 stars!

Thanks to Ballantine, Random House and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
