Any Ideas??

Hi all,

 

I'm quite new to this whole concept, so here goes....

I am desperately trying to find fictional novels that have social workers as characters in them....I figured crime fiction might be a good place to find the odd social worker, especially if there are children involved....

So, my question, I guess is, has anyone out there come across social workers in their crime reading...???? No matter how small the role....

And if anyone out there wants to recommend anything that is an 'easy' read, please do...I've not read much crime before, but am quiute busy in life right now, hence the 'easy' read!

 

Thank you.

Take a look at Denise Mina's Exile and see if it fits your criteria.
