When the body of a young girl is washed up on shore, DI Jackman and DS Evan’s are put on the case. With the daughter of one of their own missing and a cold case with similarities, suddenly their small team is overworked. When another girl goes missing from the same area, they have to work together to figure out if something is going on, or it’s just a string of tragic accidents.
It’s been a while since I’ve read a true police procedural novel, and I must say that it’s really fun. The murder mystery and storyline were interesting. We knew who the murder was early on, but that was how it was designed. The way the story was written, it allows you to follow along with the bad guy and the police. This genre focuses a lot on the evidence aspect of the mystery, which does mean that they pull out chemical names for drugs, which I enjoy but I can see being annoying for some.
After the last book, DS Evan and DI Jackman seem to have an even closer relationship than the last book. However, when you’re almost killed, it tends to make you put things into perspective. We also get to meet more police throughout this book. Not only do we meet the SI but also cops from other teams and precincts. I do find it funny that Evan is referred to as Marie throughout the book, and Jackman is just Jackman.
I really enjoyed this book. Though I don’t read many of these books, I really should get back into them. I used to read them all the time.
