Publisher's Summary

A young woman's body is discovered on a deserted footpath.
It seems like a simple crime for DCI Sophie Allen and her team to solve. But not when the victim's mother is found strangled the next morning. The case grows more complex as DCI Sophie Allen discovers that the victims had secret histories involving violence and intimidation. There's an obvious suspect, but Detective Allen isn't convinced. Could someone else be lurking in the shadows, someone savagely violent, looking for warped revenge?
Dark Crimes is the first in a series of detective thrillers featuring DCI Sophie Allen, head of the newly formed Violent Crime Unit in Dorset. She is pushed to the limit in her first major case as the team's head.

Good for a first outing.

I love to read a good mystery so that I can puzzle out whodunit. In this case the mystery isn't whodunit, it's how to catch him. A good police procedural, but I was hoping for more of a puzzle.

Worst narrator

I'm not sure the story didn't deserve more stars, although the writer's research into psychopathy was a little too much lesson and too little like believable speech from the characters. Nonetheless, the story could have been compelling with a better reader. Normally you get used to bad narrators, but this one made every word grate on my nerves.
