Cerebral Police Procedural
A Very Good Beginning to a New Series
What a great story! It was moving and sad. I loved it. It reminded me very much of a Kurt Wallander novel by Henning Menkel. It has the same sense of isolation. It is alsom beautifully written and constructed.
The most memorable moment in the novel came to me at the end. When the detective is listening to the confession of the killer and the moments just after.
George Guidall is my favorite narrator. His performances are always first rate. He brings such depth and character to his performances.
I did not have any extreme reactions. I did love every minute of the novel.
If you like Henning Menkell's novels, you will like this. It is very plot driven. The characters, while not fully fleshed yet are believable. I also like the main detective. This is sometimes difficult in modern detective novels.
