TOP 500 REVIEWERon 1 December 2014
This was an interesting take on a detective pairing. What we are led to believe was once a highly effective team is now totally dysfunctional because the partners allowed their relationship to spill over into a personal and romantic one, and then it all went wrong. Within a few days they realised that they wanted different things and had different approaches to their problem. Of course it can't have helped when they found rhemselves investigating the recent murder of his wife. Mattheus thought his wife had died six years ago when she first went missing, now he has to come to terms with the fact that she just left without a word, created a new life for herself, told an entirely different story of their life together - one far from flattering to him, and proved to be a very different person from the one he thought he knew. He also has to grieve for her loss all over again. Cindy realises that he is unable to be objective about this case, but too often she finds herself fighting him over it.

They both believe that not only do the police have the wrong person in custody, but that they are also fixated on their suspect as he is the most obvious and also the most convenient person, but are Cindy and Mattheus at risk of falling into the same trap? Can they overcome their differences enough to get to the truth of the situation before the situation gets to them?

I found the relationship between Cindy and Mattheus quite credible, they would not be unusual in allowing their close working relationship to become more than it should be and then have to face the consequences when it all falls apart. For me it added another layer to the storyline. It can all seem too neat, or even contrived, when an investigative team becomes romantically involved.

What would have been a good novel is ruined by sloppy punctuation and random missing words which turn it into a disjointed obstacle course.

I've read the other books in this series and I enjoyed seeing where the story led as to the murder. However, I think that the way they developed the characters of Cindy and Mattheus wasn't so believable. You even took to disliking Mattheus at certain points. Also there were a lot of mistakes in the writing of all of these Kindle books.

Despite not having read books 1 to 4 in this series, I had no problem getting the jist of the past between the 2 main characters, and enjoyed a classic detective story.

Despite a lot of typo errors in this book, the story was still as solid as the others. Looking forward to the next one, hopefully it will be better checked?

I know I am being sexist but I soon realised this was a woman's book, with particular effort put into what the female detective was wearing each day, could she really pack that much in her suitcase ? Also as private detectives they seemed to have remarkable access to the regular police. I chose this book because it was mainly set in Key West which I have been to but really it could have been set anywhere, the only local reference was to the Hemingway House. I persevered to the end but it was a disappointing read for me.

This was one of the few books I have not been able to finish. The plot was interesting but the writing was poor. The dialogue was stilted and even if I could have suspended my disbelief I just didn't empathise with the characters. I'd have given it one star but as I just couldn't get into the book have tried to be kind and so decided on two stars. Sorry. Others may like this but it isn't for me. With a good editor (not to mention proof reader) it could have been a lot better.
