Private Eyes has a lot of suspects for the horrible that occurred in the story. Four stars were given to this review. ( )

Excellent!
A real whodunnit. ( )

I first read this book about a quarter of a century ago and I'm certain I would have rated it higher back then - I kept it for 25 years for goodness sake.
This time I found it hard going. Pages and pages of unnecessary description, and needless flashbacks. I found myself skimming these sections to get to the next appearance of Milo. Because Milo = action, which moved the plot (such as it was) forward. Also Milo is an interesting character, an out gay cop in a steady relationship. And with so many gay characters in this book it was intriguing to see his reactions to them and the parts they played in the drama.
The ending was just ridiculous. Not a clever plot twist but completely out of left field and gratuitous and unnecessarily graphic. It was almost as if Kellerman didn't have a clue where he was going and come up with the ending on the fly. ( )

Definitly on its way to a 5 star rating for the first 500 pages until it descended into a Keystone cops fire drill at the end with a series of confusing and fast moving events that I found hard to follow and accept as a satisfactory conclusion. Detective Milo Sturgis and his loyal friend Dr Alex Delaware, playing the role of Watson to Milo's Sherlock usually face complicated crimes in Southern California in most Kellerman books. This one is a bit different as it features Delaware and Sturgis comes in as second fiddle in a complicated, yet fast moving and fully absorbing plot, where typical of Kellerman, at some point, everybody falls under suspician. In true Charlie Chan style, the culprit emerges at the end and all is revealed. In my mind, the ending of this book betrayed the story, but some might find it pausible. ( )

A good and interesting read, bringing in the uber rich of the Los Angeles area and the psychology of children. Who grow up to become adults. And the adults who influence them. As with most Alex Delaware books the ending was surprising and completely unexpected. ( )
