Once again Paolo's private life and tangled relationships are mixed in with a gripping mystery. Yet again, just when you think he might be able to sort things out, it may not happen. One of his team is behaving very oddly and there is no time in the middle of a horrific crime spree to stop and find out why.
I would just add a proviso - great read, super-tangled plot BUT it contains a great deal of possible "triggers" for anyone with abuse issues.
Quite simply I was impressed. The storyline grabs you from start to finish. Have already downloaded the next in the series.
Frances Di Plino is a powerful writer; her prose has a habit of grabbing you by the throat. So why only 4 stars? The crime being investigated in this novel is child sexual abuse and I found this disturbing. A couple of the chapters made me uncomfortable, as well they should. This demonstrates the author's ability to exact emotion from her readers and her skill in this regard is to be commended.
The character of Paolo Storey is engaging. He is a very human man dealing with very human problems. The writing is interspersed with small every day things that readers will relate to and that make the tale all the more real. It is these trinkets of normality that I like most about Frances Di Plino's writing.
The clues to the case are woven into the story in just the right places and will keep you guessing until the end. The author, in the crime's conclusion, ties in even that which is not expected and shows that nothing in her story is superfluous.
There will be no spoilers here but the last line will knock your socks off. If you are one of those folk who read the last page first, do yourself a favour and just don't.
Despite my personal misgivings about the subject matter, this novel is a good read and I would happily recommend it.
I purchased this for Kindle on Amazon.com.
This novel will appeal to crime readers who like dark, intense thrillers and are not phased by difficult topics. The sensitive subject is handled well by the author, and the twists and turns, unanswered questions, and wealth of undesirable characters keep the reader on the edge of their seats.
An excellent second novel from this talented writer and I look forward to DI Storey's next outing.
Detective Paolo Storey is determined to shut down the syndicate flooding the streets of Bradchester with young prostitutes. When a child is murdered, Storey becomes aware of a sinister network of abusers spread across Europe, and spanning all levels of society. But Joey, the shadowy leader of the gang, always seems to be one step ahead in the chase.
This masterfully-plotted crime story, with page-turning levels of suspense, action and intrigue gripped me right from the beginning.
Paolo Storey is a flawed and empathetic character, with whom we can readily identify. The villains too, are brilliantly-evoked.
A clever and engaging story, with numerous plot twists and turns, which I would highly recommend for all lovers of dark crime fiction.
