Psychologist Alex Delaware and police detective Milo Sturgis are investigating another bizarre death in the Los Angeles sunshine in Unnatural History.
A troubled trust funded photographer is murdered in his bed. Could his murderer be a family member looking to increase their chunk of the family’s future inheritance? Or was the photographer’s latest project with the homeless to blame? Milo and Alex must traverse both the wealthiest and the poorest people in LA to solve this crime.
It’s always a treat to get to hang with Alex and Milo. The unusual mixing of psychology with a police procedural is still fresh after thirty-eight books. The crime was interesting but not as enthralling as their last series entry, City of the Dead. However, it is the realistic friendship between the characters (and their witty banter) that keep bringing me back to this series.
If you are a fan of police procedurals or buddy cop movies like Lethal Weapon, you will also enjoy Unnatural History. 4 stars!
