Good fast paced thriller, but sloppy research
January 13, 2018
Leslie Wolfe writes a good thriller, fast paced, not too filled with extraneous material, but I gave her three stars for several reasons: First, when 'Dawn Girl' 's body was first discovered, it was on Palm Beach. Then every time the beach where her body lay was mentioned, it was Juno Beach, which is nearly 20 miles from Palm Beach! Yet, the detectives who worked the case with her were Palm Beach police. Then she's calling them Palm Beach County Police. If they were Palm Beach County cops, they'd be from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, and they wouldn't be working a Palm Beach case. If the body were discovered on Juno Beach, the Juno Beach Police Department would be working it, not the Palm Beach Police Department. Then, in Miami, they don't do as real cops do and go to the police station to get them involved since it was in their back yard; they work it alone without the courtesy of getting the local cops involved. And especially, not to involve local police when they went to get the collar on the maniacal suspect on Biscayne Bay in Miami . As a writer I found this confusing and contradictory, which is a shame, because Wolfe knows how to write a fast paced thriller which holds the reader's attention on the action. I look forward to reading more of her thrillers, as I liked Agent Tess Winnett, flawed because of what the suspect did to her in the past, but a good FBI agent, nonetheless.
