This is the first of Leigh Russell's stories that i have read.
What to say about this book? Well, it's a pleasant read, no hard work needed. The writing is good and, in the case of the audio production, nicely performed. It is not a ground shaking new experience but then that isn't always what is looked for curled up comfortably with a good book.
The main appearing characters are reasonably fleshed out and both sides of the criminal divide of cops and robbers are pretty equally matched with all of them seemingly being far from the sharpest knives in their respective boxes and everyone portrayed being emotionally immature. I did find myself wondering how someone who had reached the lofty heights of detective inspector could be so bereft of personal incite or confidence but, hey, everyone around her appeared just as frail in this respect so, other than my fearing for the inner lives of our real life police force, at least it gave consistency to the characters.
So, if you are looking for a comfortable no-surprises-or-pain read this could be for you. If you crave any excitement or suspense, look elsewhere.
