Great plot, good characterizations and pacing, many excellent characters, and many despicable ones. Too many characters challenge my memory skills.

Love the background descriptions of the People's Park, as well as the accompanying lunacy of the bureaucracy's efforts to do the right thing between feuding groups claiming control over this popular public space. And how easy its become through social media and the internet for different groups and individuals to manipulate the truth, create fear and rage, and endanger public officials and civil servants.

Quick compelling read.

Normally I read Kellerman's Alex Delaware novels. This is the first Kellerman novel that I've read co-authored by his son and enjoyed it very much. It had a different feel to it and Clay Edison is a less contained character than Delaware. As the local coroner, he is called to People's Park in San Francisco, when the bones of a deceased infant are found. At the same time, he is approached by Peter Franchette, claiming that the deceased may be his lost sister. Clay starts unraveling the mysteries of the past to find out what really did happen to his older sister, Peggy? ( )

I have read Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware series for more years than I care to think about…and absolutely loved the characters and the series. I was hesitant to start this new series with new characters to learn to like or dislike but I am really glad that I did. The character of Clay Edison is just as interesting as Alex and his friend, police detective Milo Sturgis and as coroner he is presented with the opportunity to add more information about the dead that he works with. This one though, I found to be stretching the imagination a bit. Clay did things that a coroner not only wouldn’t do but wouldn’t have the authority to do. As fascinated as I am with forensics…I found a lot of the information just boring…slow moving and a bit hard to follow with way too many side stories. I’m wondering if the additional author Jesse, his son, could account for the difference in Jonathan’s usual style of writing. I’ll continue with the series but hope that Clay gets back on track soon.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Random House Publishing in exchange for an honest opinion. The views expressed by this reviewer are entirely my own. ( )

This is the third in the Kellerman’s father/son series about coroner Clay Edison. I am beginning to enjoy this series almost as much as Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware series. New father Clay, while trying to balance child care with his wife and lack of sleep, simultaneously works on two mysteries while still fulfilling other obligations as a deputy in the county coroner’s office. While excavating the one time hippie enclave People’s Park, bones of an infant are uncovered. Clay is contacted by someone who thinks it might be a disappeared sister who has been a family secret for years and soon these two stories diverge.

A well written, steady investigative procedural, it is a quick, engrossing read with a likable protagonist. The Kellerman’s neatly tie up all loose ends and leave you anticipating the next in this series. ( )
