Created by Jonathan Kellerman
Cain and Abel who?They share the same mother and both their fathers were cops but other than that, about all they share is the same turbulent and raucous family history.the city of Los Angeles is as much a living, breathing character as the heroes and villains who roam its labyrinthine streets. Sunny on the surface but shadowy beneath, this world of privilege and pleasure has a dark core and a dangerous edge. In True Detectives, Kellerman skillfully brings his renowned gifts for breathless suspense and sharp psychological insight to a tale that resonates on every level and satisfies at every turn.
Although they were first introduced in Bones (2008), featuring Kellerman's popular series character child psychologist Alex Delaware, True Detectives (2009) marks the true debut of AARON FOX, slick ex-cop turned even slicker high-rolling Los Angeles private eye and his taciturn, goody two-shoes half-brother, LAPD homicide bull Moses Reed.
In Bones, the brothers (and Delaware) cross paths again, when the two half-brothers must put aside their innumerable differences and familial squabbling and team up to find a missing Malibu student.
Jonathan Kellerman has used his experiences as a clinical psychologist to pen a long string of bestselling mysteries, most of which feature the inexplicably popular child therapist Alex Delaware. With his wife, novelist Faye Kellerman, Kellerman has also co-authored the bestsellers Double Homicide and Capital Crimes, and written numerous essays, short stories, scientific articles, childrens books, and three volumes of psychology, and the lavishly illustrated With Strings Attached: The Art and Beauty of Vintage Guitars. He has won the Goldwyn, Edgar, and Anthony awards, and has been nominated for a Shamus Award. The Kellermans live in California and New Mexico, and one of their children is budding mystery novelist Jesse Kellerman.
