5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 22 July 2014
I have now read all 3 of the series and this is the most powerful. Wisting is suspended amid allegations of evidence planting on a case 17 years previously when a young woman went missing and was eventually found murdered. Initially he believes that Internal Affairs will.investigate the evidence planting and exonerate him but as time goes on he realises that they have already mentally tried and convicted him and are not looking for anyone else. This neatly parallels the old case where they found their suspect and didn't look further, but as that case was predicated on planted evidence did they do enough and was the perpetrator guilty or innocent?

To me, this may be one of the best police procedurals I have ever read as it contains everything I love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the enthusiast, 20 July 2014
I bought this, at his behest, for my brother's birthday and he is absolutely delighted with it. I mentioned the negative review about getting it to work and he told me it's no problem getting it work as he has some kind of box (very technical) he plugs in to his PC that gives him access to all operating systems and can easily read the software. So if you need to buy the box this software may turn out to be quite expensive (and 90 for a Cd isn't?) but if you are a true Audi enthusiast as he is (he has 3 old bangers in my mind, 3 classics in his) you probably have all the accessories required.
