Another great job Ms. Green!
Man, I have really missed Stacy Green! Ms. Green’s Lucy Kendall series is a huge favorite of mine. It’s been well over a year since that series wrapped up, and I’ve missed Lucy’s stories tremendously. I was therefore excited to finally be able to purchase a copy of the first book in Ms. Green’s new Erin Prince series, Killing Jane. I have to say it was well worth the wait.
Killing Jane is an outstanding read. The protagonist is a new homicide investigator in Washington D.C. I was thrilled to see her paired up with a character from the Lucy series, Todd Beckett. Todd plays a big role here as Erin’s partner. Todd is highly competent and helps keep Erin grounded. Erin grew up in a privileged family with all the trappings thereof; her colleagues call her Princess. Her self-esteem is not the best and she tends to put her frustrations out there, often mistargeting Todd, one of her strongest allies. My only issue with the story is that Erin is sometimes not very likeable, though to Ms. Green’s credit, the characterization is such that it is pretty clear why Erin is that way.
The tale pulled me in from the first sentence of the first chapter. This is not unusual for a Stacy Green novel. The plot is involved, yet highly engrossing. Lucy and Todd are the leads on a very perplexing case involving multiple murders with a Jack (Jane?) the Ripper angle. Seemingly every time they discover a clue, it only goes to making the situation that more complex. By the time the end was approaching, I felt like a spinning top trying to get my bearings, so much was happening from multiple directions. The finish was a shocker, and all I could think of when the dust finally settled was “damn, that was good!”
Back to the protagonist, Erin. As ambivalent as I felt about her, I have to say she was different. Her insecurities come from a different place than what we usually see in crime thriller protagonists, which is a definite plus. I think what I disliked the most was her lack of a filter on her mouth. Her anxieties led her to lash out at others, particularly Todd, reminiscent of an angry child. She was forever apologizing to Todd, which got old. Hopefully, she will gain confidence as the series progresses, which should bolster her maturity and the quality of her interpersonal relationships.
My issues with Erin were not as big as they probably sound here, and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride of Killing Jane. I will be first in line when book 2 becomes available. By the way, Ms. Green has been approached by television producers who hope to turn the Erin Prince stories into a TV series. I think it will adapt well, and I can’t wait to see how this all plays out. I strongly recommend Killing Jane to all thriller/crime fiction fans.
Great job, Ms. Green, and I am so happy to have you back with a new series!
I really liked. Another author that writes a strong, damaged woman. A cop that is hiding a secret while trying to make her way in the homicide division. This book had so many twists and turns. I can't wait to read more from her.
