There are plenty of twists in a great story - it certainly had me captivated to the end, wanting to know the outcome. No spoilers here, of course - people who do spoilers deserve painful punishment!!!
Suffice to say, Efverman knows how to spin a tale, and most importantly she creates a highly believable protagonist (and I used to be a DS). DS Callaghan has plenty of flaws, but he is very, very human. As you would have gleaned from some of my other blogs on the genre, I want to read realistic cops!
I highly recommend this novel for a read.
Footnote: I had the pleasure of meeting Anna (A.C.Efverman) in Sydney, as we're both crime writers based here. I do love discussing the crime writing craft with fellow authors - an opportunity which is rather rare - and I'm looking forward to talking with Anna further.
Even more importantly, I'm looking forward to her next book (the English language version, given my Swedish is zero).
