Guilty of keeping me reading
on 3 May 2015
This definitely lives up to its blurb about being a fast-paced crime novel. When a body is discovered at a petrol station, Belfast D.C.I. Marc Craig is called to investigate. The unfolding mystery is cleverly crafted, and all the characters and settings well painted.
I may never have been to Belfast nor even to N. Ireland, but Catriona King creates a vivid sense of place. The characters are very human, with frailties and strengths that make them leap out from the page.
As Craig desperately tried to piece the case together, so did I but with less success – and the advantage of key suspects’ POVs told with a sympathetic angle that had me tempted to root for the wrong side.
A Limited Justice is the first in a crime series featuring Detective Chief Inspector Marc Craig, so I need to read the next one to see where the characters go. I want to know more and for that Catriona King is guilty.
