I haven't read the Trish Maguire books in sequence, because i haven't been able to find them at my local library in sequence.

It is fun, though, to sequence them in my mind on the basis of salient details.

I deduce this one is fairly early in the saga as:
1) Barrister Trish has a huge fall-out w. George (which happened early in their relationship, later novels
2) Trish's little half brother isn't yet on the scene (he arrives and becomes a fixture in later books)
3) Trish
I consider myself to be very well rounded when it comes to my mystery writers and I'm wondering how I never managed to read a Natasha Cooper book before! I was lured in by the quote on the cover of the book, "Trish Maguire is a heroine for our times!"- Val McDermid- Now Val is one of my favorite writers ever, so if she gives someone high praise, it must be good! The plot line was excellent and kept me guessing until the end. I am excited to read more Trish Maguire books now!
One of the books in the Trish Maquire series - as usual, well written - an entertaining read ending with a bit of a cliff-hanger!
