The book is full of characters/suspects and it seems like they all could be a murderer. However, they left me feeling indifferent to them and the same for the main characters. The premise of the book seems interesting and I can’t really explain why I had such a hard time finishing this book.
Unfortunately I will not recommend this book and give it 3 stars. Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the chance to review this advance copy.
So, following on from her previous shenanigans, Tara is now a cop. This news does not sit well with all her new colleagues due to both her previous job and also her past which was front and centre in the first book in this series. But she is determined to do her best so just tries to knuckle down and block all the naysayers. Her everything is tested when a body in a car is pulled from the fens and deemed an accident. Tara however thinks there is more to things than meet the eye but, as a newbie, she is powerless to do anything about it, officially anyway. And then there's another body with a connection to the first and people start to think that even though this one doesn't appear to be murder either, it's a bit of a coincidence and so, maybe Tara might have a point, but will they be in time to pull together enough to put a stop to things before they escalate further?
I really took to Tara when I read the first book and that bond continues through this one. She's been through a lot but her grit and determination shines through and so, even given her past, she never comes across as a victim. Sadly though, her relationship with Blake has not survived the changes which is a shame as I really feel for the situation he has got himself in to.
Tara's supervisor Patrick is a bit of a nasty piece of work as he tries to block Tara's every move. Sadly though, he isn't the only one out to get her so she has to think outside the box to get her own results. I did like that side of her, especially when she puts her journalist hat on to ferret things out!
The actual story line contained within the book was intriguing to say the least. But with the deaths all looking like accidents, there is nowhere for the police to really go. But, scratch the surface and all is not what it seems. Especially with the disembodied voice we keep hearing from throughout the book, assuring the reader that there is yet more to be discovered. The cast we meet in this book are all dubious in their own ways and led me a merry dance pretty much all the way to the end of the book!
Pacing is also good, as always for this author there is no padding or superfluous description so the story gets on with itself very nicely. Obviously things ramp up towards the end, but I can't remember anywhere where it dragged on the journey to that.
All in all, another winner from Ms Chase who is now firmly on my watch list. My thanks go to the Publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book.
This is the second book in this compelling crime thriller series and I strongly encourage you to read the first book before starting this one... I just think you’d miss out on so much of Tara’s backstory and that is very relevant to the book.... I’m going to be honest I was a little concerned because I really liked the fact that Tara was an investigative reporter I thought that added an unusual Element to the story, but I was pleasantly surprised and found this book even more engaging... and it was nice for Tara to realize her dream! Tara is a strong smart character and there is just something about her that really draws you in...
This was a fast paced compulsive thriller with plenty of suspects.... got to love when the victim is so unliked that it would be easier to find the person that wouldn’t want to kill him then the one that did.... throw in a supervisor who has a chip on his shoulder and something against you... A love interest, maybe? A motive that maybe tie to your past.... some pretty interesting office politics... and a cast of well drawn characters... sprinkle in the Cambridge setting and you’ve got yourself one heck of a book!
Recommend to fans of crime thrillers with strong female protagonists...
*** A huge thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book ***
