    A Scary-Good Story

    A scary-good story that parallels episodes of young Grace and mature Grace to create a thriller that doesn't stop. The story involves more than one psychopathic killer and the impact of childhood trauma on the lives of the adults. while the story involves sex and violence, they are handled with clear and succinct descriptions that are oriented to inform rather than titillate. The book provides outstanding examples of the best and worst of human nature, with a conclusion that is ultimately satisfying. This thriller is well worth several reads.

    This book is no thriller!

    The Murderer’s Daughter by Jonathan Kellerman is a perplexing novel. Grace Blades witnessed her mother murdering her father when she was five years old. Her mother then killed herself. Grace then entered the foster care system. Grace got lucky when she was moved to her eighth foster home. Her social worker, Wayne Knutsen was getting ready to change careers (go to law school) and wanted to place Grace in a good home (a last act of kindness). Ramona Stage runs Stagecoach Ranch. Ramona was a nice lady who recognized Grace’s intelligence and helped her utilize it. She called a friend, Dr. Malcom Bluestone who tested Grace and then got her the right study materials. Grace is now Dr. Grace Blades, a clinical psychologist. She is about to go on vacation when she gets an unusual new patient. He said his name is Andrew Toner from San Antonio, Texas. Andrew turns out to be the gentlemen Grace picked up in a bar the night before (what a coincidence). Andrew claims to have come to Grace based on an article she wrote many years ago (based on an actual experience from her life). Andrew ends up leaving the appointment abruptly with giving Grace any information. The next day Grace gets a call from the police department. Andrew was found dead with her business card in his shoe. Andrew is evidently not his real name. Who was he and why did he seek Grace out? While Grace is out driving, she notices that she is being followed. Grace starts investigating and finds a link to someone she met briefly when she was 12, but he left a big impression. Grace utilizes her skills to track down who is out to kill her before they can get her. I did not enjoy The Murderer’s Daughter. It was listed as a thriller, but was more of a book on revenge. It is a very long, drawn out plot. This book could have easily lost over a hundred pages. The most interesting part of the novel was reading about Grace’s upbringing. The novel would go back and forth from the present to Grace’s past. There is graphic violence, sex, and foul language in the book. I give The Murderer’s Daughter 2.5 out of 5 stars. It sounded like such a good novel, but the story was not enjoyable to read. I received a complimentary copy of The Murderer’s Daughter from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own are not influenced in any way.

    The Murderer's Daughter

    Another excellent tale from the master of psychological based intrigue. This novel introduces a new protagonist- a female psychologist with a very troubled past that has resulted in a detachment or estrangement from people in general even while she excels at therapy due to her ability to read people with similar traumas as he own. Highly recommended

    The murderers daughter

    A great story. Well written. Slightly pedestrian at parts, but a great thriller as expected from Kellerman

    A good read

    An easy and interesting read that is sometimes a little silly. The characters surrounding the main are solid and well developed.
