The book was very good. The character development was excellent. I felt an affinity for all the actors in the plot. The plot was developed very well and slowly grew towards the final scene. However, at that point it's almost like the author decided to just end it on a disconnected, jarring finally.
Here is my complaint. There is no way that an experienced copper as the Chief Constable, who had really been the plot anchor as well as the link to the reality of policing, would have allowed himself and George to walk into the situation that confronted them for the climax without a full tactical team deployed. You can't give the man all those characteristics and all of that experience and have him walk unarmed (he didn't know George had a gun) into a situation like that where the main bad guy had just attempted to blow up George with a car bomb! It was completely out of character and I saw it coming as I read in. Then to have the Chief Constable killed after stumbling into a residential roadway at 2 AM by joyriding teens who had (up until that point) not been mentioned was so jarring as to be unbelievable. Then to pour salt into the wound the author had the Supt. Wren act out her true character and take advantage of the loss of the Chief Constable to assert herself and make George a suspect to keep him quite and hush up the mess! If I want reality I'll watch Donald Trump on television thank you very much. In my books I like characters to keep to their true nature.
Much of the story does not really flow comfortably - resulting in an 'awkward' read.
Characters tend to pop into the story unannounced and unexplained and the author uses differing names for some characters.
Still - the plot line is different and imaginative so: held my interest until the rather unsatisfactory/incomplete ending (the story just suddenly stops).
