To serious or sophisticated readers.
It would be really nice if they were numbered or listed in order on Amazon, so that it would be easier to find the correct order. I read them out of order, which is not optimal, and I still couldn't put them down. Now that I have finished all 4, I can get something done.
The book begins by telling of a serial killer kidnapping and murdering a nine-year-old child. The story is so poignantly told that I thought my heart would break. I kept reading because I felt compelled to see this villain caught and punished. That's how real the book became to me.
An intimate view of a policeman's personal life is also realistically shown. The sacrifices demanded of policemen and women and their families became very real to me. How could any police person's marriage succeed, I wondered? The answer, of course, is with love, understanding and forgivness on both sides.
As a writer I'm keeping DEADLY FOCUS as a resource for correct British police procedure. Who knows when I'll decide to set one of my cozies in West Yorkshire? I also highly recommend this novel for all mystery/crime book lovers.
I was slightly disappointed at the end of the book because I thought the ending was a bit abrupt and I felt a bit let down but hopefully when I read the next installment of the DI Jack Dylan Book "Consequences" it may continue the theme where it left off . In summary an enjoyable read.
Another proofreading would be of benefit as there are many missing words and grammatical errors.
The characterisations of the team were good and the villain suitably unlikeable. I'm about to order "Consequences" now and look forward to reading it.
D I Dylan, tough, fixated, loyal, a fast paced book, an insight into the mind of a child killer, who reasoned that his past was the excuse he needed to kill.
I enjoyed the book very much, fast paced, good characters who I hope will endure and grow as I read more of the series.
