HASH(0x8c6324a4) out of 5 stars World Class Australian Crime Fiction 19 Sept. 2011
By K. A. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The structure of VIOLENT EXPOSURE is similar to earlier novels in this series (this is #4): parallel plots that advance in tandem, each generating their own sense of suspense. The link between the main plots is Detective Ella Marconi. This time, in addition to Marconi providing links to plots of previous novels, there is a continuing thread linking VIOLENT EXPOSURE to the first novel FRANTIC in which the baby son of a police officer and a paramedic was kidnapped. The links reinforce the close nature of the paramedic community.

There is plenty in VIOLENT EXPOSURE to keep the reader engaged: believable characters and scenarios, as well as a building tension as the Marconi and her team race to find Connor Crawford.
Marconi has moved from Sydney's Cold Case Unit, where she was taking this easy after a bullet wound, into the "real world" of severe crimes. Other strands of the novel involve the paramedics where a trainee does not seem to have the sense of commitment required, and the struggle one of the paramedics and his wife are having to bring a baby to full term.
There is a further crossover between the police and the ambos (paramedics) where one of the latter is running a drama class that is part of a "street kid" project. One of the drama class participants works for the victim in her garden centre. Again this sense of coincidence reinforces how small the worlds are that we move in.

The title also makes the reader contemplate the effects on both police officers and paramedics of constant exposure to violent crimes. Do they become inured to bloodshed, less sensitive emotionally, or undermined morally?

For me VIOLENT EXPOSURE was further affirmation that Katherine Howell's novels are both unique and of world-class.
HASH(0x8d16e328) out of 5 stars Paramedic and Police procedural 7 April 2014
By carolynfromoz - Published on Amazon.com

This is the fourth book in Katherine Howell's series featuring detective Ella Marconi and a paramedic unit working out of Ultimo in Sydney's inner west and it's another excellent, fast paced story.

When police are called to the scene of a murder they find Suzanne Crawford stabbed to death on her kitchen floor and her husband Connor missing. Investigations into Connor's past find that no such person exists and the police must work hard to discover whether Suzanne's murder is just another domestic dispute gone too far or whether Connor's past has caught up with him.

What makes this novel more than another police procedural is the back story of the paramedics which are woven throughout the story. Some of the paramedics from previous novels make a re-appearance, but the main story revolves new trainee, Aidan, a wannabe actor with an attitude problem. The author's past experience as a paramedic adds realism to the events and make this an interesting aspect of the novel.

A great read! Looking forward to the next installment.
HASH(0x8ca313a8) out of 5 stars Brilliant Australian crime novel 1 Mar. 2013
By Diana M. Hockley - Published on Amazon.com
I was amazed to see that this novel was written in 2010 and still has only three reviews! Could it be the kindle price is the same price as an Australian paperback is preventing kindle owners from downloading it?

I won't repeat the synopsis, that is here for all to read. What I do want to say is that this is about the best crime novel written by an Australian that I have ever read. Brilliantly paced and written, the characterisation is detailed and believeble for all the characters no matter how minor.

The major police player, Detective Ella Marconi is an intelligent person in whose success I was happy to invest care. The paramedics Mick and Aiden had their own problems showing human frailty, but ultimately growing in stature personally and professionally.

A truly splendid novel, which I sat up most of the night to read, unable to relinquish it, and now I am hoping that Katherine Howell is typing her fingers to the bone writing another Ella Marconi novel, a sequel to this one, purely for my enjoyment!

As with all of Katherine Howell's books, this one is riveting. From page 1 you become hooked and can't put it down until the very last full stop has been read.
