Over the Edge is a psychological thriller that revolves around psychologist Alex Delaware and a former client of his. This teen calls Alex in the middle of the night and, with a mixture of insane garbled prose, begs for help.
Already feeling guilty over a previous failure to help this particular child, Alex races out to the mental institution where the boy has called from, only to find that he has escaped!
The scenerio gets worse when, only hours later, he is dicovered at the scene of a violent crime and is now the only suspect in a spree of serial killings.
Alex doesn't believe that this over achieving teen could possibly have gone from "gifted" to psycho serial slasher and when he discovers the connection between the boy and the last slain victim, he's certain he's not guilty and sets out to try to free him.
Alex, in previous novels, usually succeeds. However, he must defend the child from his own attorneys and the family who has banished him and fear for their own.
