Child psychologist Alex Delaware becomes embroiled in many mysteries after his first involvement with helping the police in When the Bough Breaks.
The Delaware books are excellent reads, finely crafted and well written. While they may leave you shaking with the offenses that can be committed against children, they will also leave you with an awareness that the law, alone, can only do so much to protect them.
Beyond the child-psychology angle, these are whopping good mysteries, engrossing, chilling, with a consistent supporting cast and true-to-life characters.
