    Love this well-written police procedural

    The thrillers in Claire Stibbe's Temeke series just get better and better and for four reasons. First, she populates her stories with relatable PEOPLE. Temeke is superbly drawn. The fact that he's a Brit in NM brings some terrific points of cultural contrast and conflict. Secondly, her PLOTS are always full of unanticipated twists and turns. These are never telegraphed, nor are they overly obfuscating or complex. In 'Dead Cold, I was left with both hot as well as cold flushes as the plot proceeded with the suspense and intensity of the very best fugitive narratives. Thirdly, she always creates an enticing sense of PLACE. No one makes the landscapes of new Mexico as present to the reader's imagination as she does. Her delineation of settings makes for a constant reboot of the pathetic fallacy, without ever having the crassness to say 'this is so.' Finally, PROCEDURALS. With Claire Stibbe we have an author who has researched the police procedures of the APD with unparalleled care, even to the point of joining the department in a voluntary capacity. Few authors I know show this level of commitment. I guarantee that these four factors, among many others, will mean that the Temeke collection will one day be up there with the best, and companies like HBO will be lining up to sign up this emerging, brilliant talent. Can't wait for the next challenge for the flawed Brit detective!

    Not my style of mystery

    This is weird. It was difficult to keep track of who was doing what. And she definitely wanted you to side with the husband.
