"cricket" for leaky roof

my father-in-law has been fighting a leaky roof which has caused sustained interior damage. It seems that the roof-line of the house creates a flat valley which either allows water to run up and under the shingles on one side or the other or funnels water back under the overhang and under the shingles. It was suggested that we could have a "cricket" built between the two sides of the valley to funnel water away from the area. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of solution and can they give recommendations on the construction details of such a thing?
