The first quarter of the book was a little hard going for me. Certainly not in terms of the writing style, I just wasn’t too sure what to make of Lacey. The additional characters that appear such as Mark Joesbury and Dana Tulloch were absolute peaches and I loved them both from the start. The plot of the book and subsequent murders revolves around some sort of copycat from the Jack the Ripper cases. The book was clearly researched well from this perspective but to be honest the writing style and plot twists were enough to keep me hooked alone. As the book progresses the story gets much more intricate and the layers begin to peel back to show just what Lacey is hiding. As each layer was peeled back I found myself liking her more and more.
In addition to this the crime scenes aren’t short on descriptive gore which make it all the more realistic. The book is packed full of twists and is certainly not short on action. The last half of the book just flew by and just when I thought I had all the answers it turned out I was wrong. The ending gives the reader that real urge to just carry on reading (which I love) and I immediately downloaded book 2. I think this has the potential to turn out to be an extremely engaging and addictive series…I’m looking forward to it.
Set in London, this book sees the introduction of a new copper in town, Lacey Flint, a flawed character (aren't they all?!!) but one with secrets, and, not glaringly obvious ones at that. What is she hiding?! We are then taken on a journey of gruesome discoveries enacted through Jack The Ripperesque style killings. This book pulls no punches, the violence is graphic and detailed. If you're a tad squeamish, then you may want to have a think before reading. Personally I loved it, I'm not easily shocked, but there were a couple of moments where even I gasped out loud. The chapters are short and punchy and pretty much always ended on a cliffhanger, so you find yourself saying 'just one more chapter' a lot! About 4 hours later, the kids are getting feral because they haven't been fed, a lot!! That's how much this book sucked me in.
It was a great story, well written at a brilliant pace. I did see the twist coming so wasn't wholly surprised, but boy you're half beaten until you get there with the questions 'am I right, am I wrong, can I trust my own instincts?' Brilliantly done.
In short, a great introduction to what I hope is a really good series of Lacey Flint tales. I recommend highly.
