Stephanie Hutabarat | 1093 comments All michael Robotham's book, Jonathan Kellerman's, and Torey Hayden. For Torey, all her books is her real experiences with problem child, while she is an educational psychologist, so her book is not crime/thriller books. I love all those books, while me myself is a psychologist:)

I agree with Malina, the Alex Delaware series is very good. I haven't read all of them but quite a few and they are always a winner for me.

Miss M | 560 comments Nicci French's Frieda Klein series is very good.

Also, Kate Rhodes' Alice Quentin, though she's not shown with clients a lot, more focused on her consulting for police.

Donna White Glaser's protagonist, Letty Whittaker, is not only a psychotherapist, she's a bright, but self-deprecating, recovering alcoholic. If you like stories with humor flavoring the mystery, you should give them a try. The first is "The Enemy We Know". As a real bonus, it's perma-free. Then you can work your way up from there.

I love the Frank Tallis Dr. Max Liebermann series, which are set in 1902 Vienna. Liebermann is a follower of Freud and teams up with Detective Oskar Rheinhardt to solve mysteries. I think the first one in the series is "A Death in Vienna." They're terrifically written stories that always get NY Times rave reviews.

Jim Crocker | 176 comments I'm not a big fan of therapist MCs, but Stephen White's book, The Program was very good -- probably because there was an interesting mob hitman in the story.
