With Wrong Place, Mel starts a new crime thriller series featuring a DI that is as strong-headed, astute and likeable as Lorne Warner in her Justice series is.
Sally Parker is a Detective Inspector in Norfolk Constabulary. She has just separated from her abusive husband Darryl. With no chance to settle in her new flat, Sally is alerted to a murder scene. She goes to investigate with her partner DS Jack Blackman.
The naked body of a young woman is found in a local cemetery. What is unusual in this case is that the murderer has left plenty of DNA evidence on the scene for the police to find and examine. How come? Was the killer disturbed by someone and had to leave the site in haste leaving behind valuable evidence? Could this just be a careless killer? Mmm...Sally is not convinced.
When more victims displaying similar DNA evidence are found, Sally is certain that she has a serial killer on the loose and is desperate to catch him. Who is killing these women? Why? How many women have to die before he is apprehended? Why is the murderer 'helping' the police? What message is he trying to convey to the police in doing so?
With gruesome murder scenes, strong likeable characters and a very unusual motive uncovered at the end of the book, Wrong Place kept me interested and glued to my kindle swiping one page after the other. I really enjoyed this book and I'm sure all other readers will enjoy it too and warm to Sally Parker as much as I did.
The story itself was intriguing. The big question was why was the murderer leaving his DNA at all the crime scenes—that was the biggest part of the mystery since we all knew while reading the story that there was no way this murderer was going to do anything purposely to get caught. I figured out part of the "how" but not the why. I can't go into too many details or that will spoil the story for you—you will want to figure it out yourself!
Sally is a very mixed character—a very strong person when it comes to her job but at loss in her personal life—when dealing with her ex-husband! She freezes up and becomes a victim when dealing with the ex. For the hundredth time I wished that the police in England could carry a gun because then Sally's husband would not have been so quick to do some of the things he did to her—he would have had serious second thoughts.
The only part of her professional life that I wished that she had done things a little differently was when she told a mother with a bad heart that her daughter had been murdered. I cringed with the way she handled this. I would have done it a little differently but maybe she just did not think of the better solution. I guess having been a CCU nurse was the reason this part bothered me so much.
I really liked Sally's parents—especially her father. He was very protective of his family and of Sally's dog, Dexter. When Sally interacts with her family she seems to be a different person to me—a bit more human and understanding.
"Wrong Place" had a satisfying conclusion but I think I was more satisfied with how Sally finally handled her ex husband at the end than with the rest of the story.
This story kept me reading until I read it all in one setting. Of course my husband complained because I was late starting supper! (This is a stand alone story for all who wants to know.)
