Another great episode!

When Detective Charlie Cooper and his partner, Detective Joe Quinn were sent to the site of a murder, the initial thought of a mugging gone wrong didn’t sit well with Cooper. And when they discovered where the victim had worked, his gut instincts told him that he was right. The front of the pharmaceutical plant which made vaccinations, had a group of “anti-vaxxers” chanting and holding up placards. They had been there for around six weeks, and although peaceful, the police had been keeping an eye on them.
When Cooper and Quinn met Ellie in the lab, along with her helper Leo, Cooper felt Ellie wasn’t telling him all she knew. And he couldn’t work out why. She was devastated at her colleague’s death, and Leo was sad because Ellie was upset, plus his friend had been killed. But Leo had problems talking to people – his Asperger’s meant he didn’t interact very well. His connection to Quinn was therefore a surprise to Cooper and the other police on the team.
Would Cooper and Quinn be able to discover what was going on? Was the stabbing death connected to the pharmaceutical plant or was it a coincidence? Cooper didn’t think so!
Dark Chemicals is another brilliant episode in the Cooper and Quinn series by Aussie author Catherine Lee. #4 in the series, I already have #5 lined up ready to go soon 😊 Filled with a gripping tension that meant I couldn’t put it down, Dark Chemicals satisfies everything in the crime/mystery genre that I love. I thoroughly enjoyed the character of Leo - I hope he puts in an appearance in upcoming books! Highly recommended.
