I very much enjoy this series. The characters ring true for me, even the secondary ones – it’s almost as if the author was a former RCMP/now truck driver. I liked learning more about Rayne and what makes him tick I’m fascinated by the dichotomy of The Job wearing him out but being something that is so ingrained in his DNA that he can’t really let go. The settings are well described. I felt like I was in the truck with Rayne, watching the miles roll by. There was one scene involving violence to a dog that almost made me metaphorically pitch the book, but I was on a treadmill using my Kindle at the time. The violence was brief, and took place off-screen, and was organic to the plot – not plain mean or manipulative. And I’m glad I stuck it out – there was a happy ending for the dog, as well as the plot.
If you enjoy traditional mysteries, I’d give this one a go. They are, of course, better in order, but you could read out of order and not feel lost as with some series.
Rayne’s best friend Dan’s behavior throughout most of the book was annoying. Rayne describes him at one point as acting like a petulant teen instead of a grown man with responsibilities.
Late in the book, Rayne and his friend in the RCMP finally ask the questions they should have asked when Rayne’s curiosity about the unsolved crime first stirred.
Readers want to see the bad guy being caught. Donald doesn’t show us that, only tells us about it in a conversation between Rayne and another character.
So this in some ways wasn’t really a mystery, more of a character study of the primary characters.
Still, I like this series that I’ll be back for more.
things added and repeated through out the book. Characters musings, things about the past,
Scenery galore. As other reviewers have mentioned the same things I won't go on about it.
This is My first book in this series that I have read, so the background came in handy for me.
It is a stand alone book. It really takes off more around chapter 8 or so, that is when I finally got
into it and had a hard time putting it down, but I did do some lite skimming past some things
that had nothing to do with the actual story line and mystery getting solved. I was glad I kept with it
and finished the book... it was good and I will look into getting some of the others in this series.
From reading other reviews I read that some of the books in this series before this one did not have
allot of filler things like this one does, so I will check them out, I do like this authors writing.
And very few typos which I really liked.
NO SEX, DOES HAVE BAD LANGUAGE
I recommend it... Happy reading
As I'm somewhat familiar with the areas written about thus far, I like that they are described accurately. They aren't just names or places pulled off a map and used as filler. Having an author write about a place you know well, and doing it right, is like having a little personal gift in the story.
The stories are stand alone, but have more continuity if read as a series.
