Subplot sidelines the murder mystery
19 May 2018
The subplot with DI Janine Mallow pushes the main murder investigation into the background.
The tension was unbearable as the denouement of this subplot resolved itself. This was masterful writing by Martin. This alone makes this book the best in the series so far.
The characters of DI Greene and DI Mallow drive this subplot towards its inevitable conclusion. And in doing so, this resolution opens up a whole new story arc that takes several books to resolve.
