I did love the interaction between Lorne and Pete. I was not happy when Lorne and her husband were fighting but that is just me. I know there was tension and in reality when someone is working endless hours trying to catch a killer I am sure there would be a great deal of tension. I have to wonder if I were in that situation would I act/react the same way. I enjoyed the story and the genre will bring out some gruesomeness so beware. I found this to be a great read that you can enjoy and look forward to what else is going to happen with Lorne and her family and partner. She is able to solve a crime and I think she is smart. She could work on being a little more likable but then again, couldn't we all? Altogether I was impressed with M. A. Comley's book, this being the first in this series, and look forward to reading the next in the series. I have it cued up and ready!
I very nearly put the book down for good after reading the graphic and disturbing opening chapter. It was an unpleasant shock.
The second chapter sets up the Inspector Simpkin's domestic problems, which feature prominently thoughout the rest of the book. I like a crime novel with strong character relationships, but I didn't feel entirely sympathetic to our workaholic policewoman. By the end of the book I found her slightly two dimensional and her judgment seemed to be off.
The dialogue is well written and the somewhat predictable plot moved along quickly so that I finished the book in two days. Some of the plot details didn't seem believable at times, for instance the level of surveillance by the killer.
The perpetrator suffered sexual abuse as a child, and this nearly always appears to be a precursor to being a serial killer.
The final cliff hanger seemed gratuitous. Although I understand why it was added to the story, it did nothing to convince me to read the next in this series of 5 novels.
For me, Cruel Justice was just an okay read.
