it was amazing

This is the first NZ crime novel I've read, though I've read quite a few American and English ones. What I liked immediately was the perspective of a journalist who is forced to find something impressive to turn into a documentary so that she can ressurrect her flagging career. She's not a cop, or a detective, or a forensic scientist, or a psychologist. In the beginning, her reasons are entirely selfish. She's got her own interests at heart. It made a nice change, offered a totally different perspective on the crime, and gave me an insight into the world of investigative journalism. Very interesting.
