'Lady's Slipper' more than fulfilled my expectations. I found this second novel in the series as atmospheric and gripping as the first and also felt that Gray's attention to the detail of the characterisation was particularly astute. This is a novel of impressive substance and represents excellent value for money. In the best traditions of a mystery its gentle pace weaves twists and turns aplenty whilst also leaving sufficient scope for the tempo to quicken and propel the reader into some action scenes that would not be misplaced in a thriller. And when the narrative reaches its crescendo it positively hurtles towards a breathtaking climax that speaks volumes about Gray's devotion to her craft and determination to satisfy her readers.
I also felt this novel would appeal to fans of the police procedural. Gray has clearly devoted a great deal of time and effort to the necessary research to authenticate her investigative storyline without burdening the narrative with too much detail. It's a tricky thing to pull off and I'd say that Gray does this with impressive skill. But in the main she stays with the characters and their interactions and leaves their professionalism or otherwise to speak for itself. For me, this is one of her writing's greatest strengths.
As with 'Hibiscus Fruit', this novel has been produced to a high standard and is also available as an audiobook. 'Lady's Slipper' has not only left me satisfied but also keen to move on to 'Forget-me-not Blues', the third title in this thoroughly enjoyable and memorable series. I doubt I'll be disappointed.
The new case has all the vibes of a Broadchurch mystery and I loved it for that. An old case with questionable evidence; a new witness; remote settings, all made for a confident coherent story, full to the brim with atmosphere.
There are enough suspects to keep you guessing until the end and with a growing sense of unease building in the last half of the book, I read the last half in one sitting.
Convicted murderer Albert Croft, who has been incarcerated for 20 years, is scheduled for release on a technicality. Moreover, a vulnerable witness, Netty Blackburn, has come forward with an alibi which would prove Croft’s innocence and get his sentence overturned.
It should be easy. But Abby is already juggling the care of her son and her career when Netty Blackburn disappears. Now she is working countless extra hours that take her further away from Johnny.
To complicate the case more, Caileigh Watson also disappears. She was only two at the time of her mother’s grisly murder, but she witnessed the killing and if her memory ever returns—she can name the killer.
Everything about this mystery-thriller, including the missing pink slipper, is both mysterious and thrilling and the characters are well developed and convincing.
