Left me wanting more, more, more ...
on 14 July 2013
I bought this book when it was the Kindle daily deal, but realising that it was the second in a series, decided to read 'The Sea Detective' first, and would definitely recommend doing it that way. The character of Cal McGill is well drawn in the first book and he fits into this one easily without the need for the constant back-story explanations that often wreck sequels. The book depends on good writing and a memorable setting and is short on blood, torture and a surplus of corpses - if that's what you're looking for, perhaps this is not for you. It's a book that despite moving slowly builds to a satisfying climax and has left me wanting more of Cal McGill ... soon ... very soon ... please.
