Great detective thriller!

I keep 40 to 50 audiobooks as my backup stash for when I run out of my preferred authors. After reading a recent review of this novel by one of the Audible listeners I follow, I dug into the stash to listen to the book. The Girl in the Ice is set in London, The protagonist, Detective Chief Inspector Erica Foster, is a brash, confident, insubordinate, capable, deeply damaged and ultimately brilliant 25 year veteran detective. This is a wonderful novel that I could easily listen to again. Highly recommended!

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Great detective work/Police politics

First let me say I felt as if I knew the main character from another story. Of course, it cant be true. She is a tenacious detective, self assured, irreverent, insubordinate and brilliant.
The opening pages introduce her convalescing after the death of her husband. She had led he and several others into an ambush in a previous case.

The mystery revolves around a murder of a socialite from an aristocratic family. This puts the family of the victim under the judgementsl eye of the media. Her family is polically powerful, which puts more pressure on the police. Most important, it exacerbates the contentious relationships between detectives and their headquarters.

It is a clever, witty novel. Sharp banter and never a dull moment. I liked it enough to immediately purchase its sequel.

And to spend an hour or so trying to discover who the herione reminded of.

DD Warren maybe. Inspector Gamache led his men into an ambush. One of Karin Slaughter's or Marsons???
