My Review

This was a fab book, I can definitely see why so many of my book blogger friends have raved about it!

I read this when I was just at the end of my Kindle Unlimited trial and wanted to read it quickly as it was about to expire. I needn’t have worried though as it gripped me from the beginning and I didn’t want to put it down. In fact I read in a few of sittings as it’s under 300 pages long.

I really liked Erika and her partner Liam as they went about working out who the killer was, and also trying to stop any more murders.

It’s hard to believe that this is a debut by Chris McDonald, as I felt very comfortable with this duo, like I’d know them for a while already. I love the relaxed approach they a had towards one another and enjoyed one scene in particular involving listening to ABBA Gold as they drove to another location. 😉

I had  so many suspicions about who the murderer was, and couldn’t quite decide on a particular suspect. I loved the way the author kept me guessing until just before the big reveal, and I was right for change! 😀

I definitely recommend this one if you enjoy police procedurals, and I can’t wait for the next Erika Piper book!
