Interesting book this, because it feels like it has a really good story at the heart of it, but it didn’t quite come across right for me. I wasn’t switched on to the main character which can be an issue - we followed her around on a lot of different emotional journeys, but still never really got to know her.
The crime being investigated was an intriguing one, and the end result satisfying as it makes sense and the motive is a strong one. The number of victims, however, made it just a little bit repetitive, so that by the time I should have really been caring about the final two selected, I was ready to cut to the chase.
That’s just a couple of niggles, though, in what was a solid start to what could be an interesting series.
