This was great! I'm really pleased it's the first part of a trilogy and I get to read the second two installments in the series. I just hope they are as high quality as this.
It's a PI novel, set in the internet age, in Hull, an industrial city in the north of England with nothing much to recommend it. Leo Rivers gets involved in the case of Nicola Bishop, a fourteen year old, who went missing five years ago at the behest of her father. The man who confessed to her murder was convicted of another murder but nothing was ever proved about Nicola's death.
The book is both well written and well plotted. I don't want to give away too much about how the story falls into place other than to say that everything is set up just right. This is well worth a read.
