Product description


With confident, compelling prose, and a fast-paced story, Kirschman manages to make the life of a police psychologist seem as exciting as that of a SWAT team. Burying Ben explores themes of power, manipulation, and ethics that go beyond the usual thriller. The vulnerable Dr. Dot is the most interesting heroine to come along in a long time. --Camille Minichino, author of the Periodic Table Mysteries, the Miniature Mysteries and the Professor Sophie Knowles Mysteries

So real you ll swear it's nonfiction! With a heroine you'd want as a friend, and a tale so gripping it will keep you up at night, Ellen Kirschman turns her incredible insight as a police psychologist into cop fiction with soul. Do yourself a favor and grab Burying Ben right away. --Shane Gericke, author of the #1 Kindle bestseller, Torn Apart

Burying Ben is a compelling novel with a brisk, fast-moving plot, and engaging characters. Ellen Kirschman draws from her years of experience as a police psychologist to imbue her book with realism, drama, and great insight into the world of law enforcement. This crime novel is a skillful debut. --Miles Corwin, bestselling author of Kind of Blue and Midnight Alley --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Dr. Dot Meyerhoff, my protagonist, is a police psychologist, as am I. She's been hired to counsel cops, but she cannot resist getting involved in the crimes they investigate. Too dedicated for her own good, she never gives up and will risk everything, even her life, to see justice done for her clients. My 30 year career as a police psychologist is less dramatic. I have never done some of things Dot has done: breaking and entering, impersonating a public official and assault with a deadly weapon. I would have lost my license.

I started out writing non-fiction. At some point I got tired of reality and thought it would be easier to make things up. It isn't. It's harder, but more fun. Creating characters inspired by real people gives me the opportunity for payback. I get to throw jabs at cops who treated me badly, psychology colleagues who did more harm than good, and two of my ex-husbands.

I still write non-fiction, updating editions of I Love a Cop: What Police Families Need to Know, I Love a Fire Fighter: What the Family Needs to Know, and (with co-authors Mark Kamena and Joel Fay) promoting Counseling Cops: What Clinicians Need to Know. I'm grateful to have been given awards by the American Psychological Association and the California Psychological Association for my contributions to police and public safety psychology. I also blog with Psychology Today and write an occasional newsletter.

Please stay in touch. Sign up for my newsletter at You'll get a free copy of my mini-memoir describing my brief career as a dance hall hostess as well as reading suggestions, cooking ideas, and modest mentions of my life as a writer. Follow me on Facebook, I post a lot of interesting articles from the world of psychology. As always, if you like my books and are so inclined, please tell your friends, your local library, your local bookstores and/or (this really helps writers) post a review on Amazon or Goodreads.
