By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings.

Edgar Award winner Jonathan Kellerman once more  explores the corruption of California's golden  coast and produces a novel of complex  characterizations and nonstop suspense.  By the time psychologist Dr. Alex  Delaware reached the school the damage was done:  A sniper had opened fire on a crowded playground,  but was gunned down before any children were  hurt.  While  the TV news crews feasted on the scene an Alex  began his therapy sessions with the traumatized  children, he couldn't escape the image of a slight  teenager clutching an oversized rifle. What was the  identity behind the name and face: a would-be  assassin, or just another victim beneath an  indifferent California sky? Intrigued by a request from the sniper's father  to conduct a "psychological autopsy" of  his child, Alex begins to uncover a strange  pattern of innocence, neglect, and loss. Then suddenly  it is more than a pattern -- it is a trail of  blood. In the dead sniper's past was a dark and  vicious plot. And in Alex Delaware's future is the  stuff of grown-up nightmares: the face of real  human evil.Also available on BDD Audio Cassette.From the Paperback edition.

Child psychologist Jonathan Kellerman writes complex murder mysteries featuring his alter ego, Alex Delaware. There are 32 such novels to date. Time Bomb, published in 1990, was the fifth in the series—and the first I found disappointing.

The set-up in Time Bomb is much like that of the earlier entries: to help children after a school shooting, Alex finds himself drawn further and further into a murder mystery. That seemingly straightforward mystery quickly morphs into a complex case that heads off in several seemingly unrelated directions. Working with his friend, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis—though taking the lead himself—Alex weaves these disparate threads into a logical set of relationships that don't become clear until the end of the book.

As in the preceding novels, the tension steadily mounts, the complexities become progressively more confusing, and both Alex and Milo's lives are threatened, but all comes out well following a violent climax. That school shooting turns out to have been far more complicated than it seemed at first. Unfortunately, in a way that's disturbingly reminiscent of the formulaic whodunits of Agatha Christie and her ilk, sorting it all out at the end requires far too much explanation. And one central character demonstrates technological capabilities that might well have been within the reach of the National Security Agency in 1988 but were surely out of reach of any individual.

Despite these disappointments, reading the novel brings rewards. Kellerman's research into the Holocaust, though it reveals nothing new, is well done. His exploration of the history of neo-Nazi activities in the United States is engaging. The insight Kellerman offers about how children react to trauma is obviously on point. And it's always a pleasure to learn more about the work of Alex Delaware, which surely reflects the author's personal experience.

Reading this book, which is taking me a LONG time to finish, sparked me to look at Kellerman's Book List to see where it fit in his chronology of Alex Delaware novels. When I saw that it was his 5th, some things made sense. By the time, Kellerman had 4 hit novels under his belt. My guess is that he probably began to flex his power as author by neglecting (or being unwilling to receive) editorial input. This is BY FAR the weakest of the AD novels, and this is coming from a pretty big fan. There are pages and pages of uninteresting and irrelevant accounts of conversations and events that smack of an author's hubristic desire to have every word he's written included in the final version. As a result, this is a stilted, unrelenting bore. If you are new to Jonathan Kellerman and the wonderful Alex Delaware novels, do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

I am an admitted Alex Delaware fan, and have read the books out of order. Although this has confused the chronological understanding, it has also provided a certain amount of surprise at some of the developments.

As a lifelong resident of Southern California, I have enjoyed Jonathon Kellerman's descriptions of the neighborhoods and environs. With this novel, the mixture of the planned community,local politics, social pressures regarding our educational system, and basic human behavior provides a unique perspective.

I recommend it as an enjoyable "read" and one that will educate the reader regarding some fairly recent Los Angeles history.Time Bomb (Alex Delaware)

Kellerman books are a good read. a little mystery a little romance but always so much more. They are well thought out. well written, well researched. I learn new things, in this case holocaust history, without being too much of the story. not preachy or ad nauseam. Good nail biting action and the endings are never preditabe. I like his characters, they are not the kind of people I would meet in my circle of activity, but they are very real, so that makes it more interesting.

I love Kellermans books. Usually a quick page turner. But this one got slogged down in too much detail.
He is very good with the details, but it slowed the story too much.
I ended up just skimming pages till it picked back up.
Over all though, it was another great book!

An excellent story line, plot is not predictable, well developed....a real attention getter and holder. Jonathan Kellerman always excels and Alex Delaware is a believable character, not over the top perfect. He's believably human and appealing. Kept my attention from the beginning to the end. Of course, I highly recommend any Jonathan Kellerman book, but this one is one of his best.

2 weeks in and having fun. Just finished Alex Delaware #5 and as an avid reader ready to move onto #6.

Although the basic plot is fascinating and the characters are interesting, I got bored about half way through and gave up. I stopped enjoying the book because it was filled with too much unnecessary detail that didn't move the story along. I would like to know how it ends, but not enough to warrant the time plodding through facts that I can't remember and don't want to remember.
