The kidnapping of a small boy is at the heart of the plot, and the details about the police procedures have clearly been meticulously researched. But there are certain curious aspects to the case that make Bev wonder if this is more than a brutal demand for money in return for a child's life. Woven skilfully into the police team's frantic efforts to find the boy before time runs out, is a case from the past that has reared its unpleasant head, and is now causing the shocking murders of several of the team itself.
The tension is excellently maintained as the story unfolds - with an absolute gem of an ending!
There is nothing complex in the tales, but Carter delivers her stories with quite a bit of colour. Her lines are good and her stories have real people in them. The lead is a likeable but imperfect Detective Sergeant (Bev Morriss) but Carter does very well in not allowing Bev's life and adventures to dominate the pages. Importantly, too, the scenarios Carter builds are plausible and she doesn't resort to constructing her stories around silly coincidences and super-human efforts.
It would be an exaggeration to say this is a deep and meaningful crime novel; but the novel is well-written and provides a very relaxing and enjoyable read. 9/10

Really enjoying this series. Not the most endearing character, Beverley somehow manages the balance between prickly and sexy right alongside that of Maverick cop. Read morePublished on 24 Nov. 2013 by MJay
