When the Bough Breaks by Jonathan Kellerman

When the Bough Breaks is … the first novel in the Alex Delaware series.

Though published 1985 I found it smart and surprisingly contemporary.

The Psychologist’s sidekick is LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis, a big, shambling Gay man. In 1985. Yet it’s not at all cliche.

Delaware appears in 32 of Kellerman’s books. I might read on.

Kellerman was a practicing psychologist in L.A. when he wrote the first 5 in the series.

Bough Breaks was made into a movie 1986 with Ted Danson as Delaware. You can watch that on YouTube.
