I first read this book in 2012/13. And I then went on to buy all the other books in the series. In typical me style, I have not read the others yet, so as i'm going through some of my series of books, I decided to re read this, to remind myself what had happened before I start book 2.

A good read with lots of twists and turns. Based in England, the plot was plausible and kept me guessing. Looking forward to the next book.

For a first foray into the crime fiction market this shows real promise. If I hadn't known otherwise I would have assumed that this was the work of seasoned writer. I'll be sure to follow Maureen's career from now on. An thrilling ride through the underbelly of a major city.
