I loved the detective partnership that is Detective Steph Warwick and Special Constable Jane Bell. When they first meet they don’t exactly hit it off shall we say. Steph Warwick is a bit of a snob when we first meet her. She is an experienced detective who is sent to the scene of a sudden death. To say she is a tad rude to Jane Bell is an understatement. Steph seems to think that special constables are beneath her and they should know their place. Steph can be rather rude too. Special Constable Jane Bell is a woman, who is trying to do her best for the community in which she lives. She has a full time job but in her spare time she is a special constable. I get the impression that Jane would quite like to become a fully fledged police officer. Jane is far too eager for her own good at times and she tries to make herself indispensable. Jane is eager to please but at times she can come across as rather irritating.
It didn’t take me long at all to get into ‘Murder Among Friends’. In fact the synopsis was enough to draw me in and the story within the book’s covers sealed the deal as it were. I was drawn into the story from the start and it soon became clear that reading ‘Murder Among Friends’ would become a serious addiction. I was spot on too. I just couldn’t put the book down. My Kindle wasn’t exactly glued to my hand but it might as well have been because it travelled everywhere with me. I couldn’t bear to miss a single second of the story. I became so wrapped up in the story that I lost all track of time and just how quickly the pages were turning. The first time I checked my reading progress, I was staggered to realise that I had read over 40% of the story in one go. I soon got to the end of the book and I had to bid farewell to Warwick and Bel.
‘Murder Among Friends’ is superbly written but then that is true of all of Janice’s books. She grabs your attention from the start and draws you into the story. Once Janice has your attention she won’t let you have it back until the moment you read the last word on the last page. For me, ‘Murder Among Friends’ was perfectly paced. The story hit the ground running and maintained a fast pace throughout. This was one of those books that kept me guessing, kept me on my toes and kept my on the edge of my seat throughout. ‘Murder Among Friends’ is a tense, tightly plotted and gripping read, with several twists and turns to the story.
In short, I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Murder Among Friends’ and I would definitely recommend this book to other readers. I look forward to reading more of Janice’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
