I found it really refreshing to read a detective novel where the lead character doesn’t seem to have relationship or alcohol problems, as seems to be par for the course in many novels like this. I really liked Detective Eleanor Raven – she is who she is and she doesn’t apologise for it. She seemed like a strong female who doesn’t yield when she know she’s right, she also seems really interesting and I want to know more about her.
I enjoyed seeing how Eleanor interacted with a new partner after her long-standing colleague was off on sick leave. I get the feeling that she will warm to Laurence as time goes on but I loved the dynamic between them – she didn’t make things easy for him but at the same time it felt like deep down she was giving him a chance to prove himself.
The murder scenes in this book are sinister and gruesome but are so intriguing that I couldn’t stop reading as I wanted to find out who was killing these people and what their motivation was. It was a fascinating crime story.
I rated this novel 4 out of 5 and am happy to discover that this is the first book in a series and am now very much looking forward to reading the second book.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Safe Word will have you gripped right from the first page with its riveting narrative and ever-so-human characters (you will literally feel as if you know them by the end). It's great to have such a strong female lead like Eleanor in a world where male characters usually dominate the thriller/crime genre.
An amazing debut novel by an incredibly talented writer. I cannot wait to catch up with Eleanor again in the future.
Definitely in my top 5 books! Highly recommend!
