I enjoyed reading this mystery. The main characters were well depicted and likeable and the story suspenseful right the way through until the end. There were a number of twists and turns with false trails that left me trying to guess what was happening and I didn't.
I'm really surprised that this is a first novel and pleased to see that there are more books by this author featuring DCI Helen Lavery. I've just bought the next one and I'm looking forward to reading it.
