*** 1/2 stars. I have been reading Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware mysteries for 28 years. By this time Alex, and his curmudgeonly police partner Milo Sturgis, are old friends. A young couple purchase their dream home in a wealthy LA suburb. The last thing they expect to find has they renovate the grounds is the long dead body of in infant in a blue box The most likely culprit is a mysterious woman, employed as a private nurse to wealthy L.A. families during the Second World War. Before Alex can properly get to work on the case,however, a young woman is found in a park near the home. She has been shot in the head at close range in an execution-style killing, but even more chilling is the discovery in the same park of another baby’s skeleton... and this one died more recently, its bones scrubbed clean and polished. As Milo and Alex delve into the past, they stir up tales of a beautiful nurse with a mystery lover, a handsome, wealthy doctor who seems too good to be true, and a hospital with a notorious reputation. The problem is that all of them are long gone, along with any records. The investigation of the more recent deaths leads in the direction of the highest echelons of celebrity privilege. Milo and Alex are shaken by the depravity they find beneath the gloss of wealth and fame. Mr. Kellerman never disappoints. Recommend!
