But, for me, the relationship between Charley and Marc is a huge problem. He exhibits every trait usually identified with abusive partners - sudden sharp jealousy, possessive behavior, verbal put downs, rage, etc. In addition, in this book and the previous, there are instances of aggressive physical behavior by Marc toward Charley (and times when she "braces against his rage" or "anger" or "fury") that are played as titillating - I found these moments disappointing, insulting, and misogynistic.
Sadly, Charley has been cast as more immature since the previous book. I miss the strong women that I thought this series was going to focus on.
It's the usual cliche of the heroine getting herself into trouble because she's trying to prove: (a) she's smarter than everybody else; (b) she makes feeble excuses for not telling the police what she learns/suspects, and so puts herself in danger.
Sound familiar? Of course it does. Authors have been using this dusty bedraggled plot bunny for so long, the whiskers are growing more whiskers. You may find the mystery interesting, even intriging. I didn't, and am deleting this from my Kindle.
