A really well constructed mystery. Reading this novel was like riding a roller coaster. The plot would slow down, clues given with nothing connecting them. Suddenly things would fall into place, the chase would soar, then more clues would be discovered, again the pace would slow only to be followed by an almost breathless chase for the truth.
The strength of this novel was not just its interesting and believable characters but the way the plot kept on getting more compelling with seemingly random incidents  the connection only being unveiled at the crucial moment.
This novel keeps the reader intrigued from the outset, satisfying the most avid of amateur detective readers. An ending that leaves the reader still asking questions and even more intrigue not yet explored, only adds to the enjoyment of this novel.The relationship between the Sheriff and her girlfriend also takes a back burner to the main plot leaving the reader hoping for further enlightenment that only a sequel could provide.
Having only read Book 2 of this series I am now searching for book 1 and eager to discover when book 3 will be published!!
