If your stomach becomes queasy from reading about gruesome events, Victims will turn you off.
If you like police procedurals that are deeply based in psychological roots for a crime, Victims will be quite appealing.
The book's main weakness is that the resolution of the story comes at such a rushed pace that it doesn't really take full advantage of the opportunities to build and to release tension. I also didn't think that quite enough clues were dropped in advance to alert readers to a major subplot.
I don't know about you, but I was getting tired of Alex Delaware mainly being in the books because Milo Sturgis seems to be averse to driving around alone. There are real issues here for Dr. Delaware to address, and his perspective and background significantly contribute to the plot.
I feel more than a little encouraged that this series could be in the process of improving. That would be excellent!
