Damned good read
on 20 January 2013
I have long been an admirer of Rohert Daws' work as an actor and when his book appeared as a recommended read on my Kindle I knew I would be in for a treat, particulary as it was a police/crime novel, one of my favourite genres.
The book is short but don't let this put you off because it starts off at a cracking pace and never falters. I found myself reading it whilst waiting for the dinner to cook, in the car if I was early for an appoointment, even whilst waiting for my hair straighteners to heat up and way, way past my bedtime. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found all the characters believable and warmed to Detective Sargeant Tamara Sullivan, a fiesty UK police officer on secondment to Gibralter following a professional misdemeanour.
The ending surprised me, which is what I like in a crime novel and the descriptions of the British Territory of Gibraltar sold it to me as a holiday destination and I look forward to going in June.
I do recommend this book, it's easy to read and hence easy to pick up anywhere, a realy good oldfashioned "whodunit". It ticked all the boxes for me. Thank you Robert and I hope we will meet Sullivan and Broderick again in the not too distant future.
