The Delegate is the third book in the DCI Harry Longbridge series and you'd think that now he and DI Fran Taylor are back from NYC and Charlotte Peterson is locked up again things could settle down for him a little - but that was never really going to happen was it.
Having read the previous novels in the series (which I would suggest you do too - it will make things a lot clearer) it is clear that Peterson will not be stopped by the walls of a High Security Prison/Hospital when it comes to carrying on with her killing spree.
The fact that she is using Longbridge's wife as the titular Delegate to get the job done could have gone either way but thankfully, as we see the character of Annie growing and watch the balance of power slightly shift the story just gets stronger. How does Longbridge cope with this - well, you'll just have to read and find out as I'm trying not to drop any spoilers here.
As a series this just gets better by the book (and it started off excellently) and has put Ali Carter on my Must Buy list of authors
