For anyone who loves crime procedural books, this book is a master class in it. Here and there It's a little far fetched and the personalities and journeys of the women didn't always hit the right mark, they didn't feel as real as the police personalities and sometimes I found it a little difficult to match the women and their and stories all as they merged a bit. Maybe there were too many of them to distinguish one from the other clearly at times. Some left more of an impression than others. But the book is peopled with some great characters and is very good. I greatly look forward to the next book in this new series and meeting up with ... Now ... Sergeant Jack Warr in the next book in the series. Seriously well plotted and crafted. And clever. Jack is a bit different as a hero too. Very engaging and interesting a character. A great read. Roll on the next book.
My first reaction when reading this novel was that the author writes in away that reflects her enthusiasm and personality when she is being interviewed. At a very past pace and one that is very refreshing. Jack, her lead, wasn’t a saint and he often came to close to crossing the fine line in more than just criminal activity. He was probably one of the more convincing fictional detective I have met when reading crime fiction. You saw his strengths, his weaknesses and his frustration at having his efforts ignored or not being able to be proven. You also saw his devotion to his partner and his adoptive parents and the guilt he felt with his ongoing determination to find his birth father. With his team members I felt a combination of liking, annoyance and sympathy towards all three. None of these characters approached their jobs in the same way, again I felt this was a true reflection of detection.
The women that Jack was investigating were people that I struggled to judge. Some I had a lot of sympathy for, a couple I really liked and wanted to know more about. Some of them made me laugh and there were more poignant moments the more I read. I would definitely be interested in reading the Widows series and I’m looking forward to reading the second book in this series.
Was not sure I would like it but it was brilliant. The story just seemed to come together the more you read, I believed in the characters and they came to life.
I can't wait for the next book. Hopefully will be out of isolation by then.
