Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God!!!!!!!! I should have know what this was ultimately about, but for some reason it totally and completely escaped my consciousness. What a blow to finally realize at the end what this was about. I almost hated this at the end.The book was very engrossing and very interesting until I finally realized who the murderer was and why he was killing. I almost couldn't accept the final conclusion and didn't want to in a way. I must say, the time setting of this book is rea [...]
A disturbingly gruesome police procedural, yet also a perceptive study of human nature, filled with in-depth characterizations . . . I just wish more of the characters were a little less flawed and a lot more likeable. I would have enjoyed being able to root for someone (like I always do with Grimes' Inspector Richard Jury or Beaton's Police Constable Hamish MacBeth - I'm reserving judgment on DCI Monika Paniatowski, for now), but when I ended up siding with the insane murderer instead of with t [...]
One of the best so far, had no clue right to the last page!
This is the most annoying series. I can't stand that the author continually has the characters "voicing" their thoughts. It's very distracting, and often I have to re-read the lines to figure out they really didn't say them out loud.
disappointingThis is the second book in a series which is a continuation of a previous detective series, using a supporting character from that one as its main character. Unfortunately, this story is even less compelling than the first one.I think the author is trying to fashion a Jane Tennyson (Prime Suspect) and portray some of the struggles of a female chief who leads an all-male squad. Monika Paniatowski is flawed but, unfortunately, not likeable and just sounds whiny and resentful.I was ori [...]
This is one quick read--hard to put down. I do wish this series was a bit less gory, seems like TMI about some things; I prefer less description of crimes. I'm also not sure I quite buy who done it. No spoilers, but seems a bit far-fetched. Good characters overall, and a nice developing core of associates.
Very unusual, that the ending was a surprise. I usually can see the end coming from a couple of blocks away. This had an image at the end that I found particularly hard to get rid of. I suppose that makes it good in some way.
Sally Spenser brings another Monika Paniatowski novel.I liked Monika when she was Charlie's bag man and her character development as the boss is coming along fine.Some very graphic descriptions in the novel and a sad ending.
I don't typically read mysteries however, found this one kept my attention. Enjoyed Monica, a women, performing in a mans world.
There was some disturbing events at the end that had I known was part of the book I would not have finished the book.
If I knew how it ended, I would not have read it. Spoiler. If you like Michael Vick, you will like this book.
I liked this book, but I think the ending was maybe a bit rushed and a little bit silly. Up until the last chapter I was really hooked. Having said that I will read another in this series.
That ending really caught me by (incredibly distressing) surprise. Would not have read it had I known what it was ultimately about.
