This is a police procedural novel. It has enough gory details for the gruesome readers amongst you, but it wasn't enough to put me off. There are really good characters, and a couple of good twists and turns. Jenkins draws you through the plot and it was exciting to try to guess who did what and how. It was a proper Whodunnit.
I liked that we saw some of the backstory of each character. We have a glimpse of why men and women become monsters. The victims are not faceless. No one is unfairly judged by the writer, we see no stereotypes; to be honest, no one gets off the hook in a Jenkins's novel, every one is a little damaged.
I didn't sleep until I finished the story. I guarantee you will enjoy this book. Perhaps this is the start of Welsh noir!
It may be something of a cliché, but this book was actually hard to put down, and would have left me reading until dawn broke, were it not the depths of winter, and sunlight hours so short. So keen am I to learn more of the principal characters, Detectives King and Lane, that I have already bought the next book in the series, and was six chapters in on my first peep between the covers. All in all, a promising start to a crime-writing career.
Much better than an actual life of crime.
I loved the author's use of language and turn of phrase and the tension built gradually until I couldn't stop turning the pages. Will definitely read more from this author.
