Not a bad book. But it did get very complicated towards the end. I still loved visiting with DI Matthew Venn and the rest of the community though.
The biggest issue I had with this book though is that you can kind of understand the why behind the first murder, but the rest of the case and how it went just had me going really after a while when you get to the reveals. I am sure someone out there has noted plot holes.
The things I loved the best is Venn and his mother coming together in this one in the beginning. I hope we get to see more of her in the later books.
I thought DS Jen Rafferty, and DC Ross May get more to do in this one and also we get more character development out of May besides him being a stick the mud. Those two alone helped to make this a very good book.
