Not as good as the first, but still worth a listen

After the first of this series I had very high hopes for this book. I was left a little flat. The main story is a little.... I don’t know how to explain.... annoying? Maybe. It's off for Shaw and doesn't embrace Deavers literary talent. It may be deliberate but just seems amateurish and forces action or suspense scenes where they don't need to be, just to break the monotony. The underlying story of Ashton and his mystery is still captivating and I will absolutely be continuing with this series. You do need a refresher course in the first book as this one references it a little bit.

Eh

I only downloaded this because I was interested to hear the continued story line of Jeffs relationship with Henri. Though disappointed it had ended the story was good. I was a little frustrated at how slow Jeff was to pick up on what was going on as it was made clear to the reader early on. The ending was as good as some of the others in this series. I will probably continue with the series.

Solid 3 stars

Not as good as Sandfords other books. I'm working my way through the Prey series. I don't know why the author made the criminals likeable but it was a little off-putting. The new sidekicks are not as good as the old ones. The final chapter is pure cringe. Like a little kid telling his bully that he would get his dad to beat him up.

Strangest thing ever.

It's not quite an autobiography, not quite a drama, sort of a mystery, and with no end. The story itself is an ok yarn but the rapid progression of years followed by several pages devoted to a single minute is very disjointed and quite infuriating. As are all the unanswered questions. The big 'twist' is fairly obvious from about halfway through. An entertaining book but with many flaws.
