The stories are brilliant, with twists and turns, but the characters are what really make this series. In this book we learn more about Ted and his personal demons. The relationships are handled in a realistic manner, and we see growth in the relationship between Ted and Trev and also a realistic and believable unfolding of the work relationship between Ted and his new Superintendent.
Stay tuned for the ending. Its a stunner!!!
These books are like chips: you can't have just one. So I'm off to pick up Book 3 in the Series.

L M Krier is an experienced writer, former journalist and copy editor with a series of successful books about her move and life in France.
This is the second book in the DI Ted Darling series and although I enjoyed the first book, I liked this one even better. Once more we have the endearing cop with a warm heart and martial arts skills, who follows procedure and actually gets on with his superiors.
The subject is a difficult one and topical at the moment, with high profile people coming under investigation and serving sentences for the most heinous of crimes.
Murder is always nasty but one involving the vulnerable young even more so. The author L M Krier covers the subject of child abuse and murder with great sensitivity. The book focuses on the procedural and background side of the investigation, without inflicting on the reader gratuitous violence, or gruesome details.
There is more about the warm and loving relationship between Ted Darling and his partner Trev, although the investigation brings to the surface one of the DI's own personal demons putting a strain on the relationship.
The introduction of the new female Detective Superintendent known as 'The Ice Queen' is a good addition to the team.
I liked the format of the book, with evenly spaced shorter paragraphs, making it easier to read. The twist at the end of the book was a good 'un and stopped me in my tracks!
As a fan of crime fiction I love finding a new detective series to follow.
Looking forward to the next one in the series!
Although this book deals with the unpalatable subject of child abuse, it could still be classed an "entertaining" read, because so many of the characters are likeable and believable. The author handles the subject with sensitivity - there is no gratuitous sexua detail. As with the first book in the series, "Baby's Got Blue Eyes", I was left wishing I could pop round to Ted and Trev's house for a delicious meal cooked by Trev and a cuddle with their many cats!
