5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 11 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback
I thought this book was excellent. The action started straight away and never let up. There were various twists and turns so you were never sure where the next chapter was going to go. I loved the characters and found them believable (Angel's mother reminded me of my own!). Certainly would recommend it; just be aware that it's the type of book that will keep you up all night reading! Can't wait to read the next books in the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Little excitement 10 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The main character Angel Delaney is so self
centred and wimpish, not how you imagine a cop......
The story is so dragged out, found myself
skipping pages to find some excitement.
This author needs a few lessons from
Sue Grafton.........

2.0 out of 5 stars What twists and turns? 21 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's hard to connect with a book when the protagonist spends the entire book moping and feeling sorry for herself. The mystery is dragged out with lots of moping and talking about god, then in the last few pages it is hastily wrapped up with the result of the hearing and identity of the baddie just thrown out there. Far from 'twists and turns' there was one very mild turn. No excitement at all I'm afraid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deadly aim Angel Delaney mystery 11 Oct 2012
By Lazlo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book because I like mystery's. I found it quite enjoyable, although the soul searching about the shooting left me in the cold. The baddie was not who I thought it was, which gave a nice ending. It was well written for a simple police story and I am looking forward to finding the others in the series.

Another very interesting murder mystery with many twists and turns. Didn't get the murderer until almost at the end and sat open-mouthed for a while before continuing to the end. An excellently written book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant to pass the time 22 Mar 2013
By Aurora TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For me the story played out quite well, dropping a little more information at a time. I can understand Angel's initial uncertainty over how many shots she had fired, and her confusion as the story progressed, especially as evidence disappeared. I can also understand - to a degree - her hesitancy over Callen's intentions as she was not sure who was on her side and who wasn't. Sure, she was incredibly naive, even stupid at times. She knew that everyone would have told her not to go to the funeral, but she decided not to tell them and went anyway, and on more than one occasion she tried investigating things she had no business getting into. I kept thinking - she is a uniformed officer, not a detective, what on earth is she doing? I also felt that her fears that her father might have had something to do with it were very plausible, if only because it wasn't easily explained, and therefore kept her in a position where she was on the back foot because she was worried about what she might uncover. It soon became obvious that the offender had to be a police officer but the author was very good at casting suspicion on all of them at different times making it almost impossible to guess who, until she was ready to reveal the identity to us.
Not brilliant, but a very pleasurable way to pass some time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but Predictable 4 Aug 2012
By shelly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Started of great but then after a few chapters the storyline started to get lukewarm, i found myself actually reading ahead of the storyline because you knew what was coming next, yes predictable but thats not going to stop me from reading another book by this author.
