Another really good storyline. Being a Glamorgan, I enjoy reading the names of places whilst picturing them in my mind

It will take DCI Lorimer a while longer to compare with Rebus, Ian Rankin leads the field in this category as far as I am concerned.

This is a very average read that is not helped by the absurd puffs that equate Alex Gray with Ian Rankin. Whilst there are many references to the Glasgow’s streets and buildings it all seems rather remote to the reader unfamiliar with the city, whereas Rankin’s descriptions immerse the reader in his Edinburgh. It Apart from these references and the dialogue that I assume reflects the city, there is relatively little that grounds this novel in Glasgow.

DCI William Lorimer and his wife, English teacher Maggie, have a disappointingly low-key marriage despite the former’s investigation into the killing of one of his wife’s pupils, the beautiful Julie Donaldson.

This is the sixth book in the series and there is clearly a backstory that involves Lorimer’s friend the behavioural psychologist Solly Brightman and his fiancée, consultant forensic pathologist Rosie Fergusson, who is recovering from a trauma presumably described in an earlier book. Neither of these professionals has a significant part to play in this book and this murder investigation takes place in parallel with that into the disappearance of a toddler snatched from outside her home. However, rather than these being developed in tandem, after a quarter of the book the abduction takes second place until a fortuitous sighting leads the police to a solution.

Gray captures very well the initial hopes of the police that the little girl will be found, then their increasing pessimism of finding her alive and the faith of the mother in Lorimer.

This book is awful. It's corny, it's cheesy and the plot is terrible. The ending is a ridiculous, laughable really. The DCI goes into a tunnel with no torch or mobile to get the killer without even mentioning to a colleague where he is headed. OH COME ON, GET REAL! I know this might sound a bit daft, but this book was so poor it was almost enoyable - if it had been slightly better i wouldn't finished it.

Really enjoyed the story but annoying issues with layout of the digital version. Each new chapter starts with the very first letter of the paragraph one on a line by itself - looks like the 'return' key has been pressed after the first letter in error (the rest of the word is on line 2). The other VERY annoying thing is the spacing - you are reading one scene and then all of a sudden, on the very next line, you're reading about someone else i.e. another scene. On a number of occasions I had to really stop and think about who was who and get my head round the abrupt no warning scene change. This sort of scene change would normally come with at the very least a few line spaces. Really annoying! I am presuming this is not the way Alex Gray writes (my first experience of this author) but rather many errors in the spacing of the paragraphs. This is my first ever Kindle book experience and I hope it's not the norm - otherwise I'll be going back to good old paperbacks!!!
