Tension abounds, and multiplied until my head was spinning in this latest DI Shona McKenzie mystery! Yet, the story was easy to follow, and follow it I did staying up all night to find out who did it…and that’s why I urge any lover of mystery, intrigue, and murder to grab this book. But before you begin to read I suggest you make sure you won’t be interrupted because it is absolutely that good!
Being a ‘start at the beginning’ sort of reader, I suggest you read the first novel in this series Killer's Countdown (DI Shona McKenzie Mysteries Book 1 before you begin this one. Either way, once you’ve read a DI Shona McKenzie Mysteries Book, I believe you’ll be eagerly awaiting the next novel with the rest of us!
Paula Rose Michelson writes Christian Inspirational Fiction, Nonfiction & Self-help from a Messianic Jewish Perspective. Her books are available on Amazon.
DI Shona brought the HOLMES system into the investigation (for no particular reason, it would seem) and amazingly sent an untrained constable to input data. That was the first and last we heard about use of the system in the book. In the end the solutions to the crimes just popped out of someone’s head – a dramatic and all too convenient end.
Knowledge of crime investigation may not be this author’s strength. Where, when and how HOLMES is used is but one example. Another is the ‘five-minute DNA test or fingerprint analysis’. Yeah, right, only on TV!
One big plus for this book is the engaging dialogue of the cast of characters. It is often quite witty. However, great dialogue about food, the weather, hating the boss, or forcing junior detectives to do a particular job is no substitute for a careful plot and accurate police procedures.
DI McKenzie and her team are called out in the middle of a blizzard to a convent where three nuns are murdered. With no apparent clues, they are in a bother. The murders keep coming apace as the team gets bogged down. The weather is causing no end of a problem, and the murderer not helping at all.
Peter finally gets the idea that it is a copycat they are looking for. And it is. The case moves right along after the team realizes this and they finally corner and arrest the bad guy. The murderer came as a surprise.
I look forward to reading more of Ms. Jones' books.
Once again, the book is well organized and easy to read. In the midst of the gruesomeness of murder, you will find a bit of humor from time to time. The characters are more fleshed out this time and easy to become attached to. Already, I'm looking for book three.
