    An excellent, fast read

    Netgalley introduced me to Victoria Jenkins in A Promise to the Dead, the 4th and probably last of the Detective King and Lane novels. I can't wait to read the first three, and know that Ms. Jenkins will be adding to her hefty stack of written prose, in whatever form, and I will need to read them, as well. Detective Inspector Alex King is pushing twenty years on the job in South Wales and considering a break. Detective Constable Chloe Lane, her partner of several years duration, knows only that Alex is troubled but not yet willing to share her worries. Not that there is time for personal problems - their crew is faced with the case of a murdered young woman, the forty years buried corpse of a young man uncovered as a patio is removed to accommodate a housing extension, and the disappearances of two young men in Cardiff, of course not within range of any CCTV. In less than a week. Missing Matthew Lewis either murdered his girlfriend Stacey Cooper and disappeared, or was himself kidnapped or killed and his body removed from the scene. Kieran Robinson's cell phone was found in Cardiff Bay after a night of partying, just out of range of the last CCTV. Did he stumble into the water, or was he abducted? Clues are spare on the ground, and the long interred corpse has haunting similarities to the cases involving young fellows who disappeared just yesterday. Added to all that DC Jake Sullivan has put his foot in his mouth - again - and cannot seem to follow procedure no matter how many chances he is given. With a complaint against him by Kieran Robinson's sister Hannah, Jake has to be removed from the already overworked team. Can it get any more complicated? You bet! This is a novel I can heartily recommend to friends and family. Victoria Jenkins is an author I will follow. I received a free electronic copy of this excellent Wales police procedural from Netgalley, Victoria Jenkins, and Bookouture in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me.

    Won't Continue the Series

    My high hopes may have led to my disappointment in this book. I loved that there were many story lines being put together. I hated the way they were tied up. It seemed to convenient and there were leaps that were never quite explained. The expendability that seemed to apply to some of the characters was disturbing, even more so for being masked as caring and liberal. This book was part of a series. I've read many books that were a few in to a series, but this one made reference to events that seemed important but didn't even get the briefest of evaluation.

    A Promise to the Dead

    Couldn’t really get caught up in the story so only read it in spurts. Therefore I got some of the characters mixed up but it wasn’t interesting enough to bother backtracking

    Fourth book in the series, shame it’s ended.

    Had previously read the other books in the series and loved this one. Shame not likely to be anymore of Detective King and Lane. Read the book too quickly and sad to reach the end.
