The Alex Delaware series is always a good read, but readers must have the stomach for a deeply dark psychological thriller. With more gratuitous savagery than strictly necessary, Victims is still a page-turner. Refreshingly devoid of in-depth character development and drama with the main characters (as is more often the case), Victims is strictly a murder mystery with a twisted psychological edge behind it all. Nice for a summer read.
