This was a good start to this series, and I cannot wait to get to know Eli Quinn and Roxy Malloy better... Roxy is young (shiny and new) with all the ideals of somebody who doesn’t know better yet.... Eli was her perfect counterbalance, the old veteran... the old dog that did not want to learn new tricks.... kind of my way or the highway....
This book starts out with a gruesome murder scene.... there are some similarities between this case and another that is what brings Eli and Roxy together.... but are these cases related? We also get a narrative from a character who calls himself Wolf... always love when you get a peek into the killers mind... but is he the killer? So many twists and turns not sure how we got to the end, but we got there....
There were some wonderful secondary characters in this book... loved Cora the most, she was so me if I had to be a police officer... she added some comic relief in a pretty dark book, she also gave Roxy some things to think about... also a special S/O to Cucumber the cat... will absolutely read the next book in the series, excited to see this cast of characters grow...
Recommend two fans of mysteries and police procedurals, with a bit of a dark side...
*** thank you so much too Bookouture and Net Galley for a copy of this brilliant book ***
The book opens with a loving young couple being observed on the street by ‘the wolf’ whose thoughts the author provide depict as being an individual with distinctly ‘not normal’ thought processes”. This opening is followed quickly with description of a brutal murder scene that brings newly upgraded Provisional Sargent Roxy Malloy of the homicide division to the scene. Shortly, another murder under investigation by Inspector Eli Quinn and Sargent Miranda Lynn is noted with many similarities. Malloy is told she no longer has ‘her first case’. She prevails upon Inspector Quinn to join his team and from this initial meeting, the story develops into a convoluted pattern of rather large proportions and involving a plethora of interesting characters, many with intriguing backgrounds.
Discussion: An unusual and quite complicated plot driven story set in Ireland that involves a host of characters about many of whom fascinating, although scant details are provided. However, the tale is woven in a manner sufficiently captivating and with just enough detail so as to be able to overlook this feature that if expanded, would have enhanced the enjoyment, at least for this reader. The developing relationship between Quinn who has been around long enough to accept and ‘live with’ the system and Malloy whose brash but stringent approach to the law he recognizes and believes change might be imminent portends the beginning of a fascinating series.
Someone is stalking and killing lovers in their prime... leaving behind a scene complete with champagne and flowers. What could have been the perfect romantic night ends bloody, and the body count is growing. Struggling to make sense of the tableau and connect the victims, time is running out to find what the tabloids are calling "The Sweetheart Killer".
Eli Quinn has a lot of experience on the force, and is a bit jaded. Nevertheless, he is a great officer and has a solid history. Roxy Malloy is the new kid, only in her twenties and promoted to sergeant on a probationary basis. She's a bit stand-offish and a rule-follower, eager to succeed and put the bad guys away where they belong. She is a strong woman and certainly not one to let any sexism from her co-workers slide. Together, they may end up making a formidable team. I think they will balance each other out nicely and learn from each other as the series goes on.
I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and Bookouture, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased.
