Jonathan Kellerman's 6 favorite books

Jonathan Kellerman, author of the Alex Delaware novels, named his six favorite books for The Week magazine.

One title on the list:
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Dumas’s masterpiece has everything: adventure, intrigue, romance, suspense, pathos, redemption. I read it when I was 9 years old. Wondering what it took to create something so wonderful set me on the path to becoming a writer.

The Count of Monte Cristo is on John Mullan's list of ten of the best valets in literature.
