Kat’s Review: It’s been a long time since I have caught up with DD and I was looking forward to seeing how she was doing. This latest installment sees the return of Flora Dane who was featured in the last book in the series, only this time she is working her way through life as a survivor.
DD is called to a murder scene involving a whole family, except one member of that family, the eldest daughter Roxy. DD needs to work out if Roxy is the suspect or the victim. Flora has a link to Roxy and as such manages to insert herself into the investigation and as such becomes DD’s newest CI. Frankly it seems like a match made in heaven and I couldn’t help but think this element of the story fitted in seamlessly.
The story is pretty well paced, although in all honesty probably not one of my favourites in the series. However, DD remains a favourite character of mine and I think this series most certainly still has the legs to keep running. There is quite a lot going on and the reader is kept engaged, however although I absolutely loved the addition of Flora, I kind of missed seeing more of her other colleagues so the return of those in the next book would definitely be welcome. I think to enjoy this book it always helps to have read the series in order as you have the background of the characters involved. Certainly an enjoyable book and one that I think fans will really enjoy.
