Review

                 
From a TOP 500 REVIEWER:

It has a really great pace to it, and I felt that the story was quite believable throughout. I have seen first hand some of the less pleasant aspects involved in the modern trade in human life, and it can be far worse than is portrayed within this book.

A Fresh New Voice in Crime Fiction
,
This is a great, fast-paced thriller dealing with some hard-hitting subjects. I enjoyed both Lorne and the Unicorn as characters. The Unicorn, especially, is a great, well-drawn villain. The story hits hard and doesn't let up until the end and I look forward to reading the sequel. Michael Wallace The Righteous.

This had me gripped from page one. It was a high octane rocket fuel charged explosion of a novel. I couldn't put it down. The characters were believable and I identified with the lead female. It was quite a long story but I didn't feel it flagged in any way. Each time I felt we were coming to some sort of conclusion the story took me up another twisty turny lane!
Thank you Mel for an amazing ride, I am eager to read the next one now! --Wistfulskimmie said.

There's a lot to love in Mel Comley's "Impeding Justice."

It's a well-told story--with a great villain, a strong supporting cast at the police station, an awesome look at society gone bad in London and several thrilling plot twists.

Unfortunately, I had a tough time getting past the fact that I didn't like the main character, Lorne Simpkins. I know I was supposed to, but there was just something missing. Such a well-told story, but not enough development of the lead as a human being.

It's odd, because there were so many other great details in the book. I would've liked a few more on Lorne. Instead, I felt a lot was just thrown out there--about her love life and sexism, for instance--and I was being asked to simply accept it. (Show, don't tell.) I mention this because I otherwise would've rated this 6 stars on a 1-5 scale.

The second half of the book is especially fast-moving and the ending is simply breath-taking. I'd easily recommend this to anyone interested in police/thriller stories.

I thought this was a really good idea for a story but I had a really hard time reading this for any length of time. It took me a week to read and a book of this length would normally only take me about two days. I just had to keep putting it down. There were many run-together words. The dialog seemed very formal to me, not at all what you would expect people to actually be saying to each other. I really couldn't develop any feelings for any of the characters at all, especially Lorne. I really think with some professional editing this could be a much better book. Needless to say I won't be reading the next novel.

I really enjoyed the book I found that the words floed off the page and kept me hooked to find out what was going to happen next. I felt that the style of the story and the plot are as good as James Patterson's Alex Cross series, which are a great series to read. So is Lorne Simpkins going to be the English version to Alex Cross? Let's hope so.

I have the next book Final Justice on my kindle waiting for me to start reading.

I would like to say a big! Thank you to Mel Comely for writing a gripping story and I can not wait to start the next book. I hope my review has given the book the justice it deserves.

Wow! This was another winner from M. Comley. The action starts from the first page and lasts until the very last page. The author is not afraid to do what it takes, even risking ticking off the reader, to take the story in a different direction. And it works really well for her. This is not for the faint of heart for sure! This second book deals with a nasty mass murderer, drug and teen prostitution trafficking ring leader, the horrible Unicorn, who has it in for DI Lorne Simpkins. He seems to always be one step ahead of everything they do and this book takes us all over the place, tracking down leads, chasing his captives and evetually to an ending that still makes me shudder. The Unicorn has to be one of the top villians I have ever read about. Comley has quite the imagination to come up with these storylines and characters, and to make them believable to the reader takes a lot of skill. She is one of the best writers in regard to character development I have ever read--and I have read a ton of thrillers! You will enjoy the edge of your seat, crazy ride all through the book that this nasty murderer leads you and at the end you will be left breathless. Do yourself a favor and get the third book right away--you won't be able to sleep until you know what happens after this book finishes up!

London's Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins has been chasing The Unicorn, for 8 yrs. This is one sick customer, and he's made it his goal in life, to beat Lorne.

This is Red John meets Criminal Minds kind of action. If you have a weak stomach, this is not for you, but it's a page turner, in the best tradition. I haven't read Book 1, Cruel Justice, or Book 3, Final Justice, but for sure I'll have to get book 3, as book 2 is definitely a "to be continued".

I can't believe that London's law enforcement agencies are unarmed!

Wasn't sure about this book, but thought I'd give it a Go,

A female cop, loses her partner and best friend on the first pages, the Killer is not the kind of guy you take home to meet Daddy,

Retribution being important, this guy kills the family of anyone who crosses him, so when one of his " Girls" a teenager, comforts another girl, he sees it as betrayal, her whole family are executed in horrific fashion, and she's made to watch the video of it, along with the other girls to teach the a lesson,

Meanwhile, Mr Nice Guy kidnaps our Cop Heroine's teenage daughter, and threatens to kill her,

He later kidnaps our cop lead's father, himself an ex cop,

Well I won't say what else happens, Don't want to spoil the plot,

Lets just say that Melanie Comley leaves room for a sequel at the end, and why is that good ... Simply put this is a brilliant intriguing thriller, Not a family book to read to the kids, but if you want an absorbing story of Kidnap, Rape, Murder and Torture, well this is certainly the book for you,

The characters develop into believable realistic people, the depravity is as realistic as it could get, but it is not all gore, there is a very well crafted story, hints of romance, marital discord and trouble with the kids, so that's normal life right?

The author gives us our moneys worth, even though she sells it at a quarter the price it should be,

I'm waiting for the sequel, and for it to make the Best Seller List,

One you shouldn't miss!
