Motive

Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9781472206428
Release Date: 2015-02-10
Genre: Fiction

Alex Delaware returns in a thrilling new case, featuring one of the most devious murderers ever conceived by New York Times No.1 bestseller Jonathan Kellerman. Even hundreds of closed cases to his credit can't keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonising over the crimes that don't get solved - and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end - one even psychologist Alex Delaware's expert insight can't explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case - because there is always a next one. This time the victim is Ursula Corey, a successful, attractive divorcee who's been gunned down - not a robbery but an execution, a crime that smacks of simple, savage revenge. And along with that theoretical motive come two strong contenders for the role of suspect: the dead woman's business partner/ex-husband and her divorce lawyer/secret lover. But just as Alex and Milo think they're zeroing in on the killer, a bizarre new clue stirs up echoes of the unsolved Hennepin murder. And the discovery of yet another crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the spectre of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulative and cunning madness.

Die nervenaufreibende Fortsetzung von YOU - Du wirst mich lieben! Nachdem seine Beziehung mit Beck ein ziemlich abruptes Ende nahm, ist der Buchhändler Joe Goldberg fest entschlossen, seine Vergangenheit endgültig hinter sich zu lassen. An die Kollateralschäden, die seine Suche nach der wahre Liebe in den letzten Jahren gefordert hat (oder die Orte, an denen ihre Überreste vergraben liegen), möchte er von jetzt an lieber nicht mehr denken. Eigentlich ist Los Angeles die letzte Stadt, in der Joe jemals hätte leben wollen, doch für einen Neuanfang scheint sie die perfekte Wahl. Es gelingt ihm problemlos, sich bei den "Möchtegerns" in Hollywood einzufügen und deren kalifornischen Lebensstil anzunehmen. Doch während die Menschen in L.A. auf nichts anderes als sich selbst fixiert sind, kann Joe nicht aufhören, über seine Schulter zu blicken. Das, was in der Vergangenheit geschehen ist, schwebt über allem, was er tut, und jedem Schritt, den er geht. Denn manche Leichen bleiben nicht für immer vergraben ...

Zwei Frauen lernen sich auf einer Party kennen.

Aus gelegentlichen Treffen werden regelmäßige, man erzählt einander das eigene Leben, spricht über Familie und Freunde, vor allem über Freundinnen. Und natürlich über Bücher und Filme, die man liebt und bewundert. Delphine ist glücklich über die Gemeinsamkeiten und fühlt sich verstanden wie schon lange nicht mehr. Ganz entgegen ihrer Gewohnheit gibt sie in einem Gespräch über das Schreiben die Idee für ihr nächstes Buch preis. L. reagiert enttäuscht: Wie nur könne Delphine ihre Zeit auf eine erfundene Geschichte verschwenden? Eine Autorin ihres Formats müsse sich der Wahrheit verschreiben. Delphine ist entsetzt. L.s leidenschaftlich vorgetragene Forderung löst eine tiefe Verunsicherung in ihr aus. Bald kann sie weder Papier noch Stift in die Hand nehmen. L. scheint völlig unglücklich über das zu sein, was sie in der Freundin ausgelöst hat. Selbstlos übernimmt sie die Beantwortung von E-Mails, das Absagen von Lesungen und Interviews, das Vertrösten des Verlags, der auf einen neuen Roman wartet. Und all das in Delphines Namen. Keiner weiß davon, keiner kennt L., und so ist Delphine allein, als sie feststellt, dass L. ihr immer ähnlicher wird ... Ausgezeichnet mit dem Prix Renaudot 2015
