I really like this series, but this one had a few too many twists in the plot for my taste. One 1/2 brother (Sandy) is targeted for a hit-and-run but the other 1/2 brother (Warren) gets mistaken for him. Sandy is the older, illegitimate, less successful brother, and he decides to take on the persona of the sibling who is in the hospital in order to hide. And gets entangled into a mess that Warren is a part of. He gets discovered by Warren's friend, Fiona.....who actually falls for Sandy, continu ...more
This is a new series to me. I usually love British procedural but this one I just plowed my way thorough in determination to finish. Don't know if it was the plot, the police characters or the characters in this volume. Not a bad book but it just didn't grab me and hold my interest. So now I have to decide if I want to search out another book in the series and give Superintendent Yeadings and his team another chance.
