A good detective story from an author new to me. DI Kidd back to work after illness, gets clobbered with with a gruesome copycat murder. His DS Zoe Sanchez keeps him in inline, the rest of the team catching up ! Kidd makes mistakes. Has he been off work too long ? The case is involved, previous cases are linked. A good story, I liked it ! Fifth star is missing because of one of my dislikes ---the word, "gotten", five or six times. surely this is an Americanism. I don't remember it in my English !!
In englische Büchern haben die Bösen oft deutsch klingende Namen - Albert Hansen, der die "Grinning Murders" verübt hat, wurde von DI Benjamin Kidd ins Gefängnis gebracht. Gibt es jetzt einen Nachahmer? Das Buch hat Längen, und es finden sich, wie in anderen Bänden der Reihe, kleine Fehler, z.B. " ... and making the sure the curtains were pulled tight ..." Der Schluss wirkt sehr konstruiert.
This book came up on my recommendations so I thought I would give it a chance as I love a good crime thriller. I was not disappointed. It is a fantastic book with a great plot to keep you guessing and a fascinating lead character. I'm pleased know there will be more in the series because I want to learn more about DI Kidd. I do like to try and work out who did it but I was kept guessing right to the end. I will definitely be recommending this to others.
