The Executor

The Executor - Jesse Kellerman Joseph Geist could best be described as a “professional student”. Comfortable in this status he finds a never ending number of reasons to not finish his thesis and graduate. This laziness results in his being kicked out of school, kicked out of his apartment and almost deserted by his friends. At this low point in his life he meets Alma. She seems to be the perfect solution to his problems … even though she is in her eighties. Unfortunately Joseph also meets her nephew, a ne’er-do-well who wants to make sure Joseph does not get what “rightfully” belongs to him.

My only criticism is that the book loses a bit of its momentum towards the end. It seems the offspring of popular writers are making a name for themselves in today’s book market. This is the second book I have read by the son of Faye and Jonathan Kellerman. Although I have not read their books I certainly have enjoyed Jesse’s.
