really liked it
bookshelves: 2019, audience-adult, australian, crime, difficult-topics, own-it-kindle, setting-europe, thriller

Trigger warnings: death, murder, domestic violence, probably other stuff that I've forgotten?? I've read like 17 books since I finished this, so.........

4.5 stars.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series and I was desperately hoping this would give us some answers to the backstory of Cormac and Emma. And thankfully, it delivers in fine form on that front. I was hooked by the mystery here from page 1 and it certainly had plenty of twists and turns that I didn't see coming.

The political stuff happening in the police force is just as fascinating as the crime being investigated and this didn't disappoint in any way. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
