The very thought of murdered children almost put me off this book, but I did persevere and I am pleased that I did. This is a very intriguing mystery that has the reader hanging to the very end to discover the culprit in this terrible family murder.
As usual a well crafted story with characters that I found a bit difficult to empathise with. Frankly, Dervla Jones is a bit of a handful and needs an injection of ‘intelligence’! The one person who seemed to have his hand on the wheel was Detective Senior Sergeant Todd Gleeson.
However, the story unfolds in way that surprises and tricks the reader and is the usual high standard of this accomplished Australian author.
