SUMMARY Night Moves
"to anyone who "anyone who read my reviews of the last few books in this series I will repeat what I ve said before I absolutely loved the first few books in this series Alex Delaware was a great new protagonist and most importantly in the early books there were actually legitimate reasons for him to be involved in these investigations He was a consulting police psychologist and the police used him in cases where his expertise was genuinely needed In many of the recent books though the notion that Delaware would be seriously working as a psychological consultant has gone out the window to a very large extent Milo invites Delaware to participate in practically every investigation that comes his way irrespective of whether there s a legitimate need or not This book is a good example Given the screwy nature of several of the characters in this novel somewhere down the line Milo might have asked Delaware to provide some insight but there s no legitimate reason to be dragging him into the case even before the criminologists have left the scene of the crime A man s been murdered by a shotgun blast like no one s ever seen this before and like any reasonably intelligent homicide detective would need to call in a psychologist at this pointAs the novel progresses Alex will offer the occasional psychological observations most of which are no sophisticated than those that might have been offered by anyone who s taken Psych 101 Frankly the author seems to have gotten to the point where he often doesn t even make much of a pretext that Delaware s skills as a psychologist are essential to the story Clearly he just exists at this point to be Milo s Best Bud and to help him solve the crimes that come his wayIf Delaware were another homicide detective rather than a psychologist it would make sense for him to be heavily involved in this case and the story would make for a reasonably decent novel But he isn t and it doesn t And as someone who s been reading this series from the beginning and who remembers how great it once was I find myself increasingly frustrated and disappointed with what it s become. D corpse of a total stranger in their house This baffling twisted tale tests Alex and Milo to their intellectual and emotional limit.
