Oh, what a book! I don’t even know where to start.
I think I’ll start with the lovely Detective Dan. Oh, Dan Riley. I have loved you since the very first book. This man has that coppers gut. He seems to just know when something isn’t quite right. It’s quite a skill. Dan has grown so much since the first book but he’s still the same man in his core. If I ever needed a crime investigating he would be one of the top detectives on my list.
This case had SO many secrets. I couldn’t tell who to trust and if I was coming or going. Honestly. Every time something was revealed it just gave more questions than answers. I was totally hooked!
I love Anna-Lou’s writing style. I love the different POVs and the way this book reads so differently from other police procedurals. This one really gets into the psychology of it all. I really do find it fascinating.
I absolutely loved every page of this book and cannot wait for the next one.
