Mentioned In 29 Books

  • In fiction, as in real life, the uncovering of the personal and public history of the victim and of the chief suspects is very frequently the primary activity of the investigation. In the Lew Archer books by Ross Macdonald, the story is always an exploration of the family history. In the Dr. Delaware books by Jonathan Kellerman, in which the investigator is a psychiatrist, the story is the uncovering of a personal history.
