5.0 out of 5 stars A real thriller, 1 July 2011

This review is from: Protector (Jane Perry) (Kindle Edition)
Jane Perry is a police detective; a young girl (Emily) is left alive after a brutal murder but with limited memories of what happened. During the initial investigation, she bonds with Jane, and the police place the girl into protective custody with her. Jane has to try to keep the girl alive, help Emily to recover her memory, uncover the murderer and do this without alerting the informant within the police force.

The story is gritty, with a lot of bad language and some disturbing images. Jane is haunted by a whole series of bad memories from her own childhood. She is drinking & smoking heavily and this is slowly destroying her; but her recollections of her own past also allow her to understand the pain of Emily as she comes to terms with the loss of her family. The story unfolds in a measured way, as Jane uncovers the clues, one by one.

I found it to be a superb book, with a great deal of depth and highly believable characters with feet of clay. There is a sense of desperation as they try to remain under cover, unable to trust anyone or let their guard down for a moment. The ending is highly charged and although I did anticipate it, I still felt that it was a great finish.

Certainly not one for the children; this is an adult book, with some themes that could cause a few people to get upset. But I really enjoyed it, and may well try to find others by this author.
