My Odyssey Mysteries series has social issues in each book. In my first book, The Catalyst, I address the problem of rape, abuse and alcohol. This story explains why so many rape victims do not make reports against their rapists. It's, also, about family and secrets.
In my second novel, Addiction, the issue is alcohol addiction with a serial killer thrown into the mix. It's the villian's story as much as the hero and heroine's. This book gives you an idea of how alcohol can affect family members. It, also, helps you to understand the struggle the alcoholic fights every day.
The third book, The Deceived, is about gambling addictions and the extremes some groups will go to in order to stop gaming. It shows that some factions may be as bad as what they are fighting against. Even good people can come under the influence of cult-like groups.
Even my novella, A Fool's Fool, is about those who have the power to harass and intimidate employees in the work place.
