    Police Procedural

    Daddy’s Girls by Sarah Flint DC Charlotte Stafford #5 At the graveside of his wife a man walks away leaving his 18 year old daughter and three generations of family to bury the coffin. A year later the story is picked up and at this point Charlotte and her team become involved in the murder case of an older female pensioner. The fact that this murder case might tie into to an ongoing case that sees the thief invading homes of the elderly to “talk” then steal from them is a bit different. With the murder there has been an escalation and the need to find the perpetrator has increased. At the same time Charlotte and her team are working this case there are side issues that deal with a rapist, drug dealer, dysfunctional family situation and more. The violence level is lower in this book than previous books in the series but though there was less gore there was still trauma to the victims. All in all this was more police procedural than a glimpse into the lives of Charlotte and her team. We do see the team, a night out on the town, camaraderie, problem solving sleuthing and such. I was surprised by a twist I hadn’t seen coming so that was good...even though I thought I knew who was doing what I was proven wrong and for a person that often reads the end of the book first...that is saying something. Add in the final twist...a secret that comes to light...and a hook for the next book and well...I am eager to read what comes next in book 6. Thank you to NetGalley and Aria for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Disappointing

    I normally love this series of books but this one just does not live up to the previous books. I found it quite boring and didn't care what happened to any of the characters.

    Absolutely Gripping!

    Sarah Flint pens a really realistic crime thriller and I was gripped by her latest addition to this great series! Charlie Stafford finds herself in the unenviable position of investigating a series of crimes where the perpetrator breaks into the home of elderly women and sits chatting to them about the past, before leaving with some of their treasured souvenirs. Suddenly it all ramps up a notch when the home invasion turns to murder and it becomes a case of finding out who he is before he gets the opportunity to strike again . . . I have no experience of crime investigation apart from what I read or see on tv but I suspect that this series of books is more representative of what really goes on in the squad room. There are no magic moments, no flashing bulb suddenly shining - just lots of hard graft and sometimes a little bit of luck. Things don't always go to plan but the team never give in. This is a really well-written novel, with interwoven events clouding the issue and giving the reader even more to ponder. I much prefer not knowing who the guilty party is; for me, it all adds to the atmosphere and the credibility. A very substantial thriller which reveals the doggedness of basic police work in an absolutely gripping way where the tension is palpable, and it is fully worthy of a full house of stars. I'm already looking forward to the next one!

    Verbose

    I read and enjoyed books 1 to 4 of the series but I found this one unnecessarily verbose which caused me to skip large portions.
