    1. Back a hundred years ago I ate up the Alex Delaware Milo books like candy The writing was always good and even when Kellerman would get to rambling on I still enjoyed the series He took a gay male detective and made him a main character way before many other books that I saw at the time There may have been but this was my first intro to a gay man as a main character Kellerman didn t fall into that troupe with the gay man stereotype either He made Milo s character a bad ass and I looked up to hi [...]

    2. 1,5 starsThis was me as I turned the pages of Jonathan Kellerman s latest standalone though there are one or two very quick mentions of Alex Delaware from his Alex Delaware Series novel, The Murderer s Daughter The story started off beyond slowly.I asked myself I want to carry on or not but I persevered perhaps it will gain some momentum soon It didn t much Grace Blades is a dedicated psychologist, who has a huge success dealing with troubled minds how she did this was a bit not believable hell, [...]

    3. For those of you looking for a thriller, don t look here I know, I know, it s being marketed as a thriller and a known thriller author wrote it, but it s not a thriller If you re planning on reading this and expecting a taut read full of suspense and grisly shenanigans, you will be sorely disappointed Still, the book s damn good Let me tell you why The Murderer s Daughter is a character driven piece of literature that focuses on the past and present of psychologist Dr Grace Blades She s a broken [...]

    4. The Murderer s Daughter is a crime suspense, psychological thriller, kind of Dr Grace Blades is a psychologist, she who has a special gift for treating troubled souls, people who have experienced certain traumatic events Her own childhood was far from ordinary, violence, murder, suicide she was exposed to it all early on, and after the loss of her parents she is placed into foster care some good, some bad, but all of her experiences contribute to the person she becomes.Grace is an intelligent an [...]

    5. 4 Mending the Haunted Stars Jonathan Kellerman and his books are old friends of mine For years I gobbled up everything I could find of his It has been a while since reading his genre but the thrill is still the same He weaves a tale which pulls you in from the start with all systems go.It was easy falling back into the right mindset and being a active reader paying attention for clues or making up my own theories of what was going to be revealed towards the end I had a lot of it figured out but [...]

    6. She called her parents the strangers because that s what they were At five years of age, Grace Blades had learned how to take care of herself, and to stay out of their way The violence that had surrounded her short life in the small van park would live with Grace forever the night she watched first her father, then her mother die meant Grace s life would be different to most but she was determined to survive and with an intellect bordering on genius, she would eventually find a way After a varie [...]

    7. 2.5 starsNot quite sure what exactly it was that I just read, but it certainly wasn t a thriller I d say it was a cross between a mystery and a biography of the books main character In reverse order70% of the story turned out to be complete backstory of the protagonist Grace Blades I m not exaggerating The early years really held my interest, but once she was in her teens the story line covered anything from the purchasing of her first bra to multiple chapters dedicated to her educational and fi [...]

    8. First, I would like to thank the publisher for the advanced copy of this book I received this copy via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.Yes, I know My rating for this book greatly differs from everyone else s It doesn t happen often, but it happens Don t hate me for it.The beginning of this story is interesting the childhood of the main character, Grace Blades, is explained She s a product of two people who should never have made a child together, and as described in the book, the pare [...]

    9. I was very much looking forward to this novel I ve never read anything by Kellerman, and when I read the synopsis I just knew this was going to be good Well wasn t First I don t really understand the title It suggests something than what it actually was Yes, spoilers , her parents were a murder suicide but I felt the title suggested a little than that Perhaps, I was assuming that one of her parents was a multiple murderer Guess that teaches me not to assume Second The character of Grace annoye [...]

    10. First, I would like to express my appreciation to NetGalley and Random House for an ARC of Jonathan Kellerman s newest novel, The Murderer s Daughter.Kellerman has written yet another first rate psychological novel I hesitate to call The Murderer s Daughter a psychological thriller as it is a stand alone novel with a new character that reads much like a novel than a thriller This is not a bad thing The Murderer s Daughter is a very good novel with a strong protagonist in Ms Grace Blades, but th [...]

    11. Thank you to Net Galley and Random House publishing group for supplying this book in return for a honest review This is my first read of a Jonathan Kellerman novel although he has been on my list for quite a while now A solid 4 star rating and for me an excellent introduction to this author A stand alone thriller featuring Psychologist Dr Grace Blades who has a dark past and makes a fascinating character Grace Blades uses her troubled past to help others The novel switches from past to present d [...]

    12. I ve read and enjoyed most of the Alex Delaware series but this new character is fresh and has a lot of potential Though she s also a therapist that s about all she has in common with the Delaware characters She s young and beautiful and independent maybe too independent Her clinical specialty is working with client s who have been victims of trauma such as being associated with a murderer or a loved one who s died in a traumatic manner Kellerman keeps us close to the narrator because, like her, [...]

    13. Grace Blades is a psychologist, but that is only one very small part of who she is.I found the book compelling, but the most interesting part is where the reader is treated to Grace s upbringing Her father murders her mother and then kills himself So begins her journey through multiple foster homes and what she learns from all the people she meets along the way.At one of her last foster homes, her foster mother takes in 3 other children, whose parents were killed while in a cult There is somethi [...]

    14. This is the first Jonathon Kellerman I have read for some time It is vastly different to the other books of his I have read, and also mostly enjoyed.The Murderer s Daughter is thoughtfully written There is not so much action as is usual with Kellerman s books, but there is a depth to his writing that I have not previously encountered.Told in the third person, the chapters alternate between Grace s history, and the current day This is done far seamlessly than I have encountered with many other [...]

    15. Just finished THE MURDERER S DAUGHTER, a stand alone by famed mystery writer, Jonathan Kellerman I m a psychologist and mystery writer I was drawn to the book by the premise a deeply damaged, yet dedicated trauma psychologist with a secret life is pursued by a psychopathic killer from her past There are plenty of reasons to feel compassion for Dr Grace Blades suffering, but I never did She and most of the other characters in the book felt flat, like cardboard cut outs of trauma victims Kellerman [...]

    16. The Murderer s daughter is centred around the character of Grace Blades Grace is a psychologist that experienced living with numerous foster carers as a child after witnessing her parents dying in a murder suicide The story alternates between Grace s childhood and her present life, where a client of hers is found murdered Initially, I got into this book quite easily and learning about Grace s early childhood was interesting However, there was so much detail about her past literally I feel like h [...]

    17. Man this was so good up until about the 50% mark I had to skim and skim and when I got to 80% I just didn t feel anything up to that point was great or interesting or anything This rambled on too much and by the end I was just waiting, waiting to be done And then that ending I m sorry I even started this book It managed to hold my interest for half the time, and for that I gave it 2 stars I enjoyed reading about Grace s upbringing and the obstacles she faced to get to be the woman she became But [...]

    18. In this story, Grace , as a child, witnessed her mother killing her father and then herself Now after living in several foster homes and then adopted at 16, she s exceptional in figuring out what people want from her or what they want her to say Now grown, she s a psychologist who specializes in people who have experienced trauma in their lives.However she has a secret She sometimes goes on the prowl seeking strange men for sex Until it backfires The client she meets with is the man she had sex [...]

    19. In many ways none of which I can specify without spoiling it for others this book was disturbing to me not that there s anything wrong with that Put another way, it s twisted just enough that I enjoyed it thoroughly.For those who don t already know, this one stars a psychologist, but it s not the author s popular Dr Alex Delaware although he does get a few mentions here Instead, this stand alone novel is about Dr Grace Blades, a child prodigy who watched her parents die in a murder suicide when [...]

    20. You d think that after reading nearly everything Jonathan Kellerman has written including his non fiction and children s books , I d not be expecting to find out the motives of the bad guys, wouldn t you Yet, reading The Murderer s Daughter which is classified as a psychological thriller, the category most of Kellerman s books fit into, I was truly disappointed to arrive at the end and still have no answers Deeply unsatisfactory ending, as far as I m concerned As for the rest of the novel, well, [...]

    21. The Murderer s Daughter by Jonathan Kellerman is a 2015 Random House publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review The first thing one should know up front is that this is NOT an Alex Delaware mystery, although Alex does manage to have his name dropped once This story is told from the personal perspective of a psychologist, Grace Blades Grace is a success, despite her rough start in life, but is still haunted by her past, and perha [...]

    22. I had never read Kellerman before and wasn t sure what to expect I understand from the blurb that this is a stand alone novel and not part of the Alex Delaware mystery series which has been raved about.Grace Blades has a horrifying childhood, living in a trailer park with alcoholic unstable parents who give her little to no attention She learns very early on that she has to fend for herself Her childhood is well documented not only at the beginning of the novel but throughout as we are told the [...]

    23. A rare standalone from an author best known for his long running series featuring child psychologist Alex Delaware, Johnathon Kellerman doesn t stray far from the familiar in The Murderer s Daughter.Grace Blades is a respected psychotherapist who specialises in treating patients that have experienced extreme trauma It isn t uncommon for new patients to abandon a session, but Grace is curious when the body of Andrew Toner is found the morning after their first meeting Tracing his last movements, [...]

    24. This is very much a character driven novel, I m thinking future books coming I really enjoyed the back story of Grace and Mr Kellerman managed to take us there effortlessly when the present storyline was a little slow.Grace is non apologetic which I liked and teaches us that there are no excuses deal with it.I m only giving it 4 stars because bits of it were boring when describing all the side roads etc, and when Grace was doing some of the research, it was a bit wordy I m also a little perplexe [...]

    25. A special thank you to Random House, Ballantine Books, and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review THE MURDERER S DAUGHTERby Jonathan Kellerman,a standalone featuring protagonist Dr Grace Blades, a dedicated and intelligent psychologist with a horrific past two worlds collide an intriguing psycho crime suspense, with a strong mix of literary fiction.Grace, 34,a highly regarded psychotherapist in L.A Her therapy room is located in a 1920s English cottage serving as her professional [...]

    26. The Murderer s Daughter is not an Alex Delaware thriller by Jonathan Kellerman, but of a character driven new standalone featuring a psychologist, Dr Grace Blades Alex Delaware makes a cameo appearance, but this is a past and present story about an intellectually gifted, but broken individual Grace is the daughter of a woman who killed her live in lover and then commits suicide which begins Grace s trek through the juvenile foster system The dual storylines occur when Grace has a run in with an [...]

    27. If this is the type of work that Kellerman puts out in the world then I m definitely not buying again The book started off ok with the backstory of the main character, Grace Blades, and the beginning of the story started out interesting enough but it totally went off the rails when Grace turned into her alter ego which I m not saying is a bad thing It was the complete and utter repetitive nonsense that went on throughout the rest of the book that completely bored me to tears And oh my holy hell [...]

    29. 3.5 Stars.I really liked this book Grace is a badass, and there needs to be women like her in novels I am hoping this is only book one of a series, because I really liked her.Grace is a clinical psychologist with a terrible past and childhood, but has managed to beat the odds that were stacked against her She keeps her emotions in check and doesn t allow anyone to get too close Her personal life and her professional life suddenly get meshed together in a terrible way, and Grace has to attempt t [...]

    30. I have listened to or read all of the Jonathan Kellerman books starring psychologist Alex Delaware I like them They are solid good reads but aren t groundbreaking This one is NOT about him, but a new female psychologist named Grace She had an interesting childhood, and a lot of the book is about her and her backstory As others have already stated, it s a character driven novel Everything revolves around Grace, her personality, her past present, etc While many times throughout the book I was unha [...]
