3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 22 Nov 2013
This review is from: The Last Clinic: A Darla Cavannah Mystery (Kindle Edition)
In a fast-paced, suspenseful debut novel for fans of Harlan Coben and Lisa Gardner, detective Darla Cavannah goes Deep South in pursuit of a merciless killer - is how the publisher's described this novel. But for me it wasn't very fast paced or very suspenseful. It was a good detective story, but that's all. I was very interested to read one of the first books from Alibi but feel it fell short of my expectations. The opening was very well written, (the killing of Rev Jimmy Aldridge) but the rest of the novel didn't live up to this great start. Darla spends a lot of her time picking up gossip about various suspects and colleagues from her girlfriends and in introspective thoughts about her dead husband. I would also have prefered more investigative work and less conflict between the police officers. Having said that, it was a solid read but at times it struggled to keep my interest. I received a copy via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
