I worked out who the killer was about half way through, even though there were two other characters that the author was attempting to lead you to.
I was intensely irritated by the way the way the characters spoke to each other, they would use terms such as 'I will ', 'I am', 'You are', and so on with no contractions, people just don't speak like that. We would use 'I'm ' 'You're ' etc. The language therefore was very stilted.
As for the characters themselves. I liked Matt Brindle and Lily, I thought they gelled quite well. Matt wasn't the usual stereotypical alcohol abusing, ex-spouse ; although he did have a tragic past. The brief introduction of Matt's ex - girlfriend Melissa was unnecessary and added nothing to the story. The other detectives were the standard mix of loud superintendent, jealous layabout and impressionable rookie.
The ending was wrapped up a bit too smoothly, it felt like there was a chapter missing. We don't know what happened to Bella and her son and we don't what happened about Roy Chalker's proposition to Matt.
I'd like to read the next book in the series, if there is one, in the hope that it's better.
There are references to events which have happened in the past but I suspect they will be a theme running through the series as there is not a previous book to lay out what happened. The leading detective is haunted by those events and consequently, not always sure of himself but we do see him growing in confidence. He has returned to work after a lengthy absence and we see him picking and building a new team so we have much to look forward to in future books.
I don't know if there are further books from this series in the pipeline but I do hope so. I would definitely buy them.
