On her working side: She makes herself as part of her team and not just the team’s boss. She is open to suggestions and really listens to what others have to say. She is not one of those boss’s whose attitude is—“it’s either my way, or the highway.” Everyone on the team is new to each other as well as new to Angie so this is one of the challenges that she is faced with. Luckily all the teammates work in tantrum with one another and the work goes smoothly with each other.
I may be wrong, but to me this is one of the most brutal and violent stories that I have read by Ms. Comley to date. But it is because of the brutality that this team is assigned to this case—and also because no one else has been able to get anywhere with it. This is a special team that was created for just these types of crimes.
This story is not a mystery—it is a story about murder and gang life so there was no guessing about “who did it”. The guessing comes with how was it all going to end with such a psycho character in the story. As with most psychos, he was very volatile & unpredictable.
Toward the end of the story things get very intense and will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat. I look forward to reading more stories about Angie and her team.
OBTW: There is some history to learn here. I got interested in what was meant by “The New Scotland Yard”. The author was kind enough to send me a link to Wikipedia that explained it. It was a fascinating article because I learned a lot about Scotland Yard that I did not know. If any of you are interested, this is the link that the author sent to me:

The Caller….will Angie North and her new specialist team catch him before he spirals out of control?
From the start we know who the evil piece of work that needs to be locked up. I took an instant dislike to Tyler, an individual who has no morals at all! He's probably one of the vicious baddies I've come across!
I loved the diversity and newness of the team. At the start of many series, the team is already established so the fact that Angie is heading up this new department and we’re all effectively meeting the team at the same time as Angie makes a refreshing change. Angie has her personal problems to deal with in the form of a teenage son but unlike a large number of detectives around, she doesn't have much baggage...yet!
The writing is seamless; you'd never know this is written by two talented ladies. But then again I said that about their previous publication "Web of Deceit". I am fascinated how a pair of writers can work together to produce a story without each individual compromising their own style. Having read books by both Mel Comley and Tara Lyons now, The Caller brings a bit of both of authors to the table (not that I could identify who wrote what).
A massive thank you to Tara Lyons and Mel Comley for giving me an e-copy of The Caller! I hope the team is here to stay!
I really enjoyed the story, angie a DI starting her new role as a the leader of a new serious and organised crime team lands her first case while still getting to know her colleagues and if a tough case. I liked how we got to know aAngie's team as she did herself and the characters felt real and likeable... except for the bad ones obviously! Angie's home life gave us a background in to her character and I liked that it was fairly normal, no traumatic events in her past, alcohol abuse, disfunctional love life and stuff like that that often crop up in lead ditectives of crime novels.
The only slight issue I had with the book is that i found one aspect of the plot hard to believe in, particularly given that the team were all strangers so Angie wouldn't have any real insight in to their individual skills so the under cover scinario didn't really work for me. overall though I enjoyed the book and await book 2 with interest.
Thanks to Mel for an advance copy of The Caller in exchange for an honest review.
I'd never have known that the story was a collaboration, as it flowed seamlessly from page to page. Angie North was instantly likeable, her DCI actually seemed decent, and I'm in love with her husband!! The action kept the reader on their toes throughout, aand ties up neatly at the end, leaving a very interesting loose end for future books!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good crime read - well done, Mel and Tara!!
I loved the main characters and really liked the new Organised Crime team that has been put together and how their different backgrounds worked so well to achieve the results and I am really looking forward to reading more about them in the future.
The pace in this one was great; I loved the length of the chapters which were long enough to pack in the detail and to keep me entertained too.
Four stars from me for this one, a really enjoyable read!
