Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Detective's Daughter (Kindle Edition)
This is another cheap Kindle purchase which has disappointed. I must stop being tempted by them as they are turning out to be a complete waste of money! I got bogged down by a slow start which seemed to lead nowhere. We are introduced to quite a lot of characters early on, but the descriptions are confusing and tell us nothing (some people have called this atmospheric.) None of these characters elicits our sympathy. Their different "voices" tell the story, but it is very difficult to work out what this story is! and after several times having to go back and reread, I lost interest. Other critics have said it becomes clearer eventually. In my opinion, the author needs to get the reader's interest and understanding much sooner in order to keep him reading on. I gave up.

Mr. J. J. Cox says:
Why not try From Green to Blue (The Blue Trilogy) by Jonathan Cox (me)? With over a hundred 5 star reviews, it's the top rated police procedural on Amazon. Check it out, could be right up your street!

I might do later. At the moment I'm playing safe with Ian Rankin, Val McDermid and Cath Staincliff lined up on my Kindle!
