Kellerman Jonathan

The Museum of Desire

Penguin Random House, London 2020


This is the 35th Alex Delaware novel, and it shows.Like with the late Picasso paintings the reader is confronted with a crude, contorted story. It  seems that Kellerman has run out of ideas und has to come back to the outdated NAZI connection to give his plot a sufficiently sick turn.

Kellerman still writes mostly dialogues, in his laid back, laconic style, which still is a pleasure to read.

But the plot is just unnecessarly disgusting.
