5.0 out of 5 stars A really good read, 23 April 2014

This review is from: Dark Winter (Kindle Edition)
This book is set in and around Kingston upon Hull. Several strands of the story appear isolated until gradually the reader makes connections. Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy is a gentle giant of a Scotsman and pretty nifty with a database but is also a thinker a man who can make links. Fellow officers make an arrest but McAvoy knows this is not the guilty man.

I understand the author is or was a journalist and he certainly writes well. I very much enjoyed his use of language and was swiftly drawn into the story. Occasionally I found the present tense telling of the story a little intrusive. I prefer not to notice the tense but when I keep being reminded I think it's less successful. Altogether I really loved the story and didn't find the present tense business annoying enough to deduct stars. A really good read.
