Delaware is a brain, and what I like about this series is he sounds intelligent and he sounds like a real psychologist. However, he barely has an inner life except for a ton of overwhelming angst. It feels like instead of drowning his misery in alcohol or drugs, he rescues kids. But these rescues are pyrrhic, so endings are happy because the doctor is still breathing. This one is a quick read, but as usual, children are abused and used as commodities by mentally sick adults so it's not an 'easy' read. If you read the news, you know these things happen. While the book allows for some 'psychological' relief in Delaware's quest for rescue and justice, and in his taking down the bad guys, the kids end up destroyed in one way or another, their ending being happy in that they are alive.
