Good police procedural
on 15 January 2012
We have three sub-plots here, all dealt with by members of the 87th precinct - the case of a murdered nun, a burglary which goes horribly wrong, and a criminal's plans to shoot a policeman who had him arrested for murder.
This is good police fiction, albeit without any complexity or twists and turns. I wasn't thrilled about the structuring which saw the threads run into each other without text breaks, potentially throwing the reader into confusion (or was this perhaps a Kindle formatting problem?). All stories also ended a little too quickly for me with everything wrapped up in a few pages.
That said, it wasn't hard to turn the pages here and despite not be overly challenged by the material, I did enjoy the easy writing style and plot elements. 3.5 stars.
