Teaser Tuesday: Motive


This weekend I began a novel by another of the authors I enjoy reading: Motive by Jonathan Kelleerman. The story begins early on with a conundrum:

In the lobby of Cohen’s building, Milo said, “Ursula’s mouthpieces sticks up for Richard and Richard’s mouthpiece thinks the world of Ursula. Next, I’m expecting a van full of hippies distrributing daisies.”

“Peace and love,” I said. “Meanwhile, Ursula’s in a van on her way to the morgue.”

He stared at me. “Isn’t cynicism my gig?”

“A little sharing never hurt anyone.” (p35, Ballantine Books, New York, 2015)

As the story progresses, other questions are added to this first one. I look forward to seeing where the story ends and to seeing what Alex Delaware gets up to in this novel. .

What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.

  1. Not sure where that story will lead Colline, but it seems to me by the initial wordings, it may be set back in a scenario of a few decades ago, just my interpretation through words, either way, keep us informed on your opinions as you progress.
    Kind regards and Best Wishes.


    1. I am not too sure in which decade the story was set Ian – the author does not give much indication. I can tell you that I have now completed the story and that I have enjoyed reading it.
