Someone has murdered euthanasia champion Dr. Eldon Mate - a self-styled Dr. Death responsible for scores of assisted suicides. In a burst of bloody irony, the killer chooses to dispatch the doctor in the back of his own suicide van, hooking Mate up to the killing apparatus dubbed the "humanitron"--And adding some butchering touches of his own. The case is assigned to veteran LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, who turns, once again, to his friend Dr. Alex Delaware. But working this case raises a conflict of interest for Alex so profound that he can't even discuss it with Milo, and the tension that develops between cop and psychologist further complicates an already baffling and complex murder investigation.… (mais)

It is funny how one can forget how enjoyable a Jonathan Kellerman novel can be. Right now in the process of trying to catch up on my Kellerman reading so this is the second one in a row. The thing I can say about Jonathan Kellerman while I enjoy this books they never seem to stick with me as others do. His writing is good his stories are interesting and he does a good job of developing his two primary characters. You know the people is he writing about they are familiar and sometimes I wonder if that isn't part of the problem. The are steady they are known and human but nothing really stands out about them. They live through the story and you join them on their journey in each investigation. Maybe there is not enough flash not enough panache. The stories are enjoyable, they are good and do hold your interest but they don't ever have that hidden sin like the joy of sneaking a hot cookie that mom has just set out and told you to wait for.

Dr Death is one of his more interesting stories with more than the usual twists and turns as the crime is investigated. There is tension between the principle characters and it can be felt throughout the story - something that is not easy to do. There are some interesting characters that are more than cardboard fillers as the story progresses and the ending is pulled off in a very interesting manner that tangentially fulfills the wrap up requirement of the diverse elements that were in play. The final answers are surprising but in retrospect answer the deepest questions that were left hanging.

I would recommend this book for anyone who has enjoyed a Jonathan Kellerman story. ( )

I have no idea why I've never read any of Jonathan Kellerman's books. I also don't know how this one ended up on my shelf but, but I'm certainly glad it did. This is part of a series featuring psychologist Alex Davenport. This isn't the first or the last, however. In this one, Eldon Mate was infamous for his euthanasia of the terminally ill. Only now he's the victim and it wasn't a nice, peaceful death. Kellerman is prolific and I'm off to find another of his.

Wer hat den Mörder getötet? In seinem brillanten und verblüffenden neuen Roman gibt Jonathan Kellerman, mehrjähriger Bestsellerautor und Premier-Eigentümer des Psychothrillers, der zentralen Frage des Mordes eine scharfe und zeitgemäße Wendung.

Jemand hat den Euthanasie-Champion Dr. Eldon Mate-einen selbsternannten Dr. Tod ermordet, der für eine Vielzahl von Sterbehilfe-Selbstmorden verantwortlich ist. In einem Anflug von blutiger Ironie beschließt der Mörder, den Arzt auf den Rücksitz von Mates eigenem Selbstmordwagen zu schicken, ihn an den "Humanitron" genannten Tötungsapparat anzuschließen - und ihm selbst ein paar abschlachtende Berührungen zu verpassen. Der Fall wird dem altgedienten LAPD-Mordermittler Milo Sturgis zugewiesen, der sich erneut an seinen Freund Dr. Alex Delaware wendet. Aber die Arbeit an diesem Fall wirft für Alex einen so tiefgreifenden Interessenkonflikt auf, dass er ihn nicht einmal mit Milo besprechen kann. Die Spannung, die sich zwischen Polizist und Psychologe entwickelt, verkompliziert eine ohnehin schon rätselhafte und komplexe Mordermittlung weiter - unter den Verdächtigen befinden sich die Familien von Dr. Mates "Reisenden", Mates eigener Sohn und ein psychopathischer Mörder, der die Geometrie des Todes genießt.

Dr. Tod ist ein reichhaltiges Gebräu aus unvergesslichen Charakteren, labyrinthischer Handlung, blätternder Prosa und den einzigartigen Einblicken in die dunkelsten Ecken des menschlichen Geistes, die Jonathan Kellerman internationale Anerkennung als Meister der psychologischen Spannung eingebracht haben.

I like the voices of the characters in Kellerman's books, and the writing and dialogue are far better than the average entry in this genre. Action and detail pile on constantly in a suspenseful way. However, in this particular book, Kellerman takes preachy tendencies to an extreme. These tones are present in most of his mysteries, but they are extreme enough in this novel to slow down the reading. It's not thought-provoking: it's annoying. ( )
