  • Loved it on so many levels

    I loved The Detective's Daughter. I had wanted to read it, but did not get around to it for at least a year- while I wanted to read it, I wasn't *sure*it would be good. Well.. as I obviously say in my review title-I loved it! Although I'm older now, and my parents were never separated,I can relate to main character Stella's quiet care but distrust of her family. But it is the combinationof a somewhat unusual interesting unsolved crime, *and* fascinating characters that made me love this book! Thomson's writing style is subtle. I was never hit over the head with anything and there were no cheap gimmicks. While two of the main characters are *not* especially out-going and friendly - I found them wonderful. The mystery is different and I honestly didn't guess who "done it". As I say, it is subtle but interesting writing that insidiously becomes exciting, even shocking.. but to me it's the interplay of the characters- the Detrctive's daughter,her memories of her father, and the man she hires-and the unusual cold case murder mystery that make this story. Try it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Complex story but well worth the read.

    Interesting and intricate plot with strong well-drawn characters.There are surreal elements along the way and I had a niggling feeling that the author had gone one coincidence too far to tie up the ending.As well as the people, the story paints an interesting picture of suburban London and nearby areas during a period of atrocious weather. In addition, the reader can pick up many useful hints about cleaning houses and commercial premises from the principal character who runs her own cleaning company. Well worth putting in the effort required to see the story through to the end

  • The Detective's Daughter

    An enjoyable read except it was way too long. Once the lead characters were involved in solving the murder it was a page turner but getting to that point was a challenge. Sometimes less is more.
