Great medical mystery - WOW - hard to put down! Tension just keeps
building.....dares you to quit reading....
Munchausen syndrome by proxy is a disorder that causes parents to induce illness in their own children. This is the story of 21-month-old Cassie Jones whose parents rush her to the ER night after night with unexplainable medical symptoms.
Alarming book that reveals the cruel and evil side of human nature. Suspenseful and the ending is not at all what everyone expects.
Introduced me to the disease Munchausen by proxy. Scary
A really intelligent psychological thriller about a child psychologist investigating a case of Munchhausen by proxy to determine whether it is the mother, the father or the apparently devoted nurse simulating illness in an innocent toddler in order to feed their need for attention.
couldn't really get into it.
Alex Delaware series. These are really good mysteries.
A Dr. Alex Delaware novel. Dr. Delaware may have to prove that a child's parents are making her sick. Doctors call it Munchausen by proxy, a terrifying disorder.
When Dr. Delaware consults on a little girl, he is positive the diagnosis is Munchauseen by proxy. Munchaussen is when a person makes herself sick; munchaussen by proxy is when someone (usually the mother) makes the child sick frequently. Great mystery. One of Kellerman's early novel...but holds your attention to the end.
another excellent delaware novel
Very detailed in describing events and scenes..

Another excellent Alex Delaware book. This is my favorite one that I've read to date.
Little slow for me, but got better around the last 1/3 of the book. Surprise ending.
The 7th book in the Alex Delaware series.
