I don't read a lot of crime fiction, but I wanted to include this genre for the AWW Challenge. Gemma Lincoln is a likeable main character - strong, kind, intelligent, vulnerable. The sub-plots were intriguing, and the murder mystery kept me up late at night to find out whodunit. I also enjoyed the familiar Sydney settings.

I really enjoyed this one - like others, I was thrown by the level of involvement/interference that Gemma has in the police investigations, and I made the mistake of listening to this, the final instalment of the series without having read the rest of the series, which was probably less than helpful.

This was a bit of a second rate Australian mystery. Gemma Lincoln is a private detective who seems to be able to assist in police investigations with complete impunity, examining crime scenes and interviewing suspects.

I also found the love story and the will-I-won't-I keep the baby debate a bit irritating. It gets a co ...more
Great book

Quite a good thriller/mystery. I like the protagonist and her new love interest. A couple of times I felt the dialogue was forced to show what a great guy this was, and I lost track of a character who turned out to be part of the big reveal. I can't be sure this wasn't due to my own poor memory. Most of all, I liked Hugo, Hugo was cool. Definitely worth a read.

This book was very enjoyable especially if the reader has already read any of the previous Gemma Lincoln series. It's a wonder why there has not been another sequel written to chronicle the further exploits of the main character.

Enjoyable, but a civilian being able to assist in police business is a bit weird
