This book is realistic. It is horribly, revoltingly realistic and if the reader understands that and has taken into account the subject matter before beginning it is also fascinating. Again, Frances di Plino keeps us guessing right up to the last pages about who the big-boss is and no, no spoilers.
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.

Another brilliant read by Frances di Plino and I'm already anxiously awaiting the next one. This story, the second following DI Paolo Storey, explores the sickening world of sex trafficking. The puzzles are challenging and the characters compelling. I woke up in the early hours and thought I'd just read a few pages... fatal. I'd finished the book the next day!

Someday Never Comes is the second novel in the D.I. Paolo Storey series and having thoroughly enjoyed its predecessor, Bad Moon Rising, I was keen to read it.

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 is the second book in the series, and if anything, it was better than the first. The subject matter is disturbing, but the autor tackles it head-on and makes the reader confront issues that are unsettling. My main warning - don't start this book if you have lots of other things to do because you won't do them, you'll just keep reading.

DI Paolo Storey and his team make their second appearance here following the authors' debut novel, Bad Moon Rising. This time they are embroiled in the dark, secretive world of child prostitution. When a child is found dead, and another killed while under police protection in hospital, the tension rises throughout the police team as they face a wall of silence. Who is the mystery Joey? How can they find evidence against the suspected peadophile ring? Someone knows about these traffickers, but absolutely no one will talk. It takes all of Storeys' experience and intelligence to force the investigation to a thrilling conclusion. Meanwhile, as well as unrest and betrayal in his team, his personal life is in turmoil - and the final excellent twist leaves the door open to more problems in his future.

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.

Paedophilia is never an easy subject to read about even if it is fiction. I think Ms De Pino has written about it very well. There is enough description of both the girls' suffering and the paedophile's thoughts (topically he is a former rock star) to make this a tough read but not enough to make it either prurient or totally sickening. The police investigation also seems well done as you get a real sense of their frustration as witnesses refuse to talk or disappear or the physical evidence is insufficient to bring a prosecution. At the same time you get a great character in DI Storey who is simultaneously dealing with his ex-wife's animosity, the aftermath of an attack on his teenage daughter, office politics and this harrowing case. I think this is a difficult way to spend a few hours but I thoroughly recommend it.

The second D.I. Paolo Storey novel lives up to the promise of the first - and then some. Someday Never Comes is a dark, dark story. There were times, indeed, when I flinched away from the raw awfulness of some of the behaviour depicted as Frances di Plino delves into the grimmest of crimes in a very topical exploration of people trafficking and paedophilia.

What redeems the book from any hint of prurience, of course, is detective Paolo himself. This is a character it's impossible not to warm to and, thinking of him, I was reminded of Raymond Chandler's comment: down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean. These streets are very mean indeed, but I was willing to walk them with Paolo, not least because the developments in his private life are as enthralling as the progress of his investigation. I'm sure every reader will be rooting for him to find happiness in the next in the series. I fear it won't be that simple.
