    One thought on “The Right Thing to Do (Short Story)”

    1. This short story lays the foundation for Jonathan Kellerman's upcoming book, The Murderer's Daughter, set for release in mid-August 2015. Although I've been vocal about not being a fan of the so-called "prequels," I caved in this time simply because it's written by an author at the Top 3 of my favorites list.At just 47 pages it took only half an hour or so to read, and I'm happy to say it's excellent. The story stands alone, but - as I'm sure is the intent - the ending left me wondering what wil [...]

    2. For the sake of people who have read other reviews, let's make this clear. This is a short story. Beginning, middle, and end. It is not a piece of another novel that never came out. I see some confusion here and just wanted to clarify.This is a long meandering little tale, that is just a character piece about a minor character from The Murderer's Daughter. That's all. It's intense and interesting if you stick it out, but you might get frustrated looking for the trademark fast pacing of your typi [...]

    3. A light band easy readAs a short story it was good. This was definitely a different venue for Kellerman writing a short story; that I am aware. It was good band interesting pertaining family relationships.

    4. So far, I have only read 2 books by Jonathan Kellerman, and that was ages ago. On the other hand, I have been a constant fan of Faye Kellerman's books (his wife). The Decker/Lazarus books are great.As for the kindle singles, I have mixed feelings about them. It’s great to finish a story in a couple of hours sometimes, on the other hand, it needs to be really captivating and well-balanced as for depth and amount of information to process - on a limited amount of pages, that is. Let’s just say [...]

    5. Malcolm Bluestone is a young man trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life--practice law because it can earn him a living, or follow his interest in psychology--conform to the norm, or be unconventional. He is visiting his movie actor brother, and trying to figure out what fits and what doesn't. Circumstances give him a nudge, and the result will likely change his life.The Right Thing to Do (Short Story) by Jonathan Kellerman leads the reader into The Murderer's Daughter which is on [...]

    6. This is just a snippet of a story, and I have a feeling it'll be one of those short stories that is better once you've read the main series. However, it is well done. Even if his name wasn't taking up a third of the cover, this is very recognisable as JK's work. The only concern I had was: another psychologist? With an awfully similar sounding backstory? But I guess this is supposed to be a sidekick instead of the new main character for the new series, so it might not feel too repetitive once th [...]

    7. A Great StartLooking forward to the novel for which this short story is the set up. I doubt I will be disappointed as this short story has me primed and ready for a good read, even without Alex and Milo. It reminds me of how much I enjoyed his "The Conspiracy Club," and how sorry I have been not to meet up with that character again. Go ahead and spend the $1.99. Easily worth it, no matter how brief the read.

    8. Always KellermanGrabs you. Moral lead characters. Child psychology. An engaging short that will hopefully lead to an intriguing new series based on these two brothers and their attempts to right wrongs. Also the period is an interesting backdrop for a different era of child abuse.

    9. This short story is the prequel to Kellerman's new stand-alone, The Murderer's Daughter. It's a quick read, taking the reader through a quick tour of the early lives of the Bluestone family. Immigrants from Hitler's Germany, the two Bluestone brothers take different paths. Sidney becomes a Hollywood actor while Malcolm considers law school. But one day on a movie set can change everything

    10. This is the worst I have ever read from Kellerman. It was all over the place & if this is a prequell to the next book I am not sure I want to read it. I think it may have been better to incorporate this in the book because it made no sense to me. It just started and then you come to a possible crime? I gave it a one just to rate it. I am a big fan but this missed the mark bigtime.

    11. I never really got into it. Lots of build up for the point to be made right at the end. Definitely unique insight that wasn't brought up in the Murderer's Daughter. Idk if there was a point to reading this after the main novel.

    12. I read this short story before purchasing a book by this author. Suffice it to say, I will not be reading any of his books. This was horribly disjointed and full of extraneous detail that added nothing to the story.

    13. Interesting fast read. Unexpected twist.Takes the reader places you don't expect to go. Recommend it. Learn about the movie industry,history,personal struggle. Kellerman is always on target

    14. THE RIGHT THING TO DO is a short story and prequel to the authors next book. Malcolm, years younger than his brother Steve, is following the path his parents have set for him. A visit to "B" action hero Steve opens his eyes to following his own dream. Happy ending.

    15. Unexpected endThe book ended so shortly after the begining that I couldn't believe it had finished. There are a lot of introduction and no story at all. It was a disappointment coming from such an author.

    16. Not muchI was looking for a quick ,good read and felt that might fill the bill. Really not much of a story that didn't have a plot. Dissatisfied.

    17. Like his style. This was only a short story so i felt it ended with a lot more to be done. i want to now read a full length book to see if it is any different.

    18. Well . . .Nice, well-drawn portrait of a young man discovering his path. The horror is all too real, drawn, I suspect from the author's files.

    19. Right thingA fast paced story of two brothers and their family. Tight story line that had little real action but moved quickly to the conclusion.

    20. Jonathan Kellerman is a fascinating author. This short story makes me interested in the series it precedes. This book fulfills the BookRiot Read Harder Challenge 2016 "Read a book under 100 pages"

    21. seriously wondering what's going on here? 41 pages story doesn't develop ends like it's only a chapter. disappointed didn't feel it was Kellerman's usual quality

    22. Weird. A bunch of different parts that had little to do with each other. Story never gets started then it ends.
