I was a bit concerned at the start of this, that including members of Steve Carella’s family in the story was just reaching for a way to bring emotions into it. But actually, it did work and the story made sense. It was nice, that some of the other cops sacrificed their day off to come in and help him out, and it was good to see how the relationships grew and changed across the course of the wedding.
The I liked that there were several potential suspects and although not quite a whodunit, the story did guide you towards and away from characters as and when required. An interesting book, and another new take on the 87th Precinct series that I’m just getting more and more involved in.
