A cleverly thought out who done it storyline that had me absorbing everything that was happening on the pages of this book. Even though there are a fair number of characters to remember, which I think is essential to the plot, just like in real life it made me concentrate a little more.
On the whole I really enjoyed it so promptly bought book 3
after I finish this one. I'm now a fan and follower of DI Jack Knox and his team. A good cast of characters with differing personalities including the one who has you grinding your teeth.
My only small gripe with the writing, was the use of to many Uh-huh and Mm-humm etc, which I thought was totally unnecessary as you got it, without it being written down. But that's just my personal opinion of course.
All in all a gripping read I found realistic with good solid believable characters!
