16. Therapy by Jonathan Kellerman (*)
These books are preposterous, and badly written besides, but I eat them up. He's the only mystery writer whose books I always read, and I always go along rolling my eyes at the writing and eating up the story. The man can weave an intriguing tale! Ironically, the next book on my list is also a mystery -- a book club selection, looks fairly flimsy but I'll probably enjoy it. I have another, Rape in Paradise, a true crime book I picked up at Costco the other day, that I can start on the plane tomorrow if I blow through the book club mystery, but when I get home I probably have to start right in on East of Eden, which is my other book club selection for May and is pretty damn long.
