A COLD HEART demonstrates why Jonathan Kellerman's novels are perennial bestsellers. This story, one of Kellerman's best, again features psychologist Alex Delaware, who now assists the LAPD in connecting and solving the seemingly unrelated murders of various rising stars. In addition, listeners can count on John Rubinstein, who has recorded 18 of Kellerman's novels, to give the books consistency and charm. Rubinstein's voice is warm, yet he is always able to give characters such as Detective Milo Sturgis distinct voices and personalities, while allowing the listener to be as awed by Kellerman's ingenious plot twists as the characters are. A welcome addition to Kellerman's characters is Detective Eric Stahl; Rubinstein's portrayal of Stahl's almost complete lack of emotion and identity is, perhaps, the highlight of the book. D.J.S.
