TOP 500 REVIEWERon 28 December 2016
I enjoyed this gritty mystery thoroughly. Britt Montero is a crime reporter for a Miami newspaper. She is young, tough and resourceful and does her job with dedication, even wangling her way into going out with the police on their night shift. This is no cosy mystery. It does not shirk any of the painful realities and Britt is pushed to her limit as she investigates police corruption and the violence that exists on the streets of Miami. I found this a satisfying, well-plotted and well-written read. The characters are compelling and the story so convincing that I wondered where the author got her inside knowledge of the newspaper business. I recalled the politics, the personal agendas and the pressures of my own working life as I read, remembering how difficult it was to follow my own instincts and ideals when everyone else knew - or thought they knew - much better than I did how my job should be done. It pushed me to my limits and Britt is similarly forced to cling to her principles as everything seems to conspire to make her fail. To be fair. her problems were a bit greater than mine! This book was an insight into an aspect of life I had not experienced and I found that stimulating and thought-provoking, even while enjoying this very readable story.

Simmer just covers this read, it simmers along never putting the reader under any pressure. Nice light read, won't tax your brain.

This is a mystery of a book. Full of turns and clues that lead you to the end. I personally enjoyed it on one level and can recommend it as a good old yarn of a read on that bases.

Although it started out a bit slow, it soon gained pace and was a very gripping and enjoyable read. I will certainly read the follow on books in the series
