(Review first published at Goodreads by myself)
Lent with Kindle Unlimited, as the blurb sounded interesting, but this looks like a DNF a few chapters in. Case is ok, but the MC is a Patrol Cop who is investigating the case alone, being told off by the case officer (female who does not like her, having worked a few months together as patrol cops).
Also the love interest is her superior, blah, both things alone are enough for me to not like this setup.
The book is also so far not current, but was originally written 2001, so probably no social media etc.
Will FF through the book to see wether it was updated or not, and how the situations play out.
Hate investigations where a single (female) person does work alone and goes places and in dangerous situations without telling anyone or leaving messages. If this happens, then this will be instant-DNF and 1 star from me.
2.5 stars, rounded up to 3 as the ending was good with a nice twist.
But no recommendation from me, too much normal Beat-Cop (Patrol-Officer) stuff, also playing in the time before smartphones and social media. Computer and mobile phones play a little role, but not enough. Also at one point the dreaded plot device of an out-of-power-mobile-phone is used.
And the MC goes to some places alone into danger, although it is well explained.
Not the page-turner I wanted, also a little love and romance I could have done without. As it is, it could have been a little shorter. Will not read another book by this author, not my style.
