    A gripping mystery with a modern twist

    This is a fast-moving mystery by a new writer, that will keep you guessing. Surprise twists along the way keep it interesting. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.

    Murder Mystery - Police Procedural

    His Hand in the Storm by Ritu Seth Inspector Gray Mystery #1 Chief Inspector Gray James is an intriguing character who after having suffered the loss of his son and being abandoned by his wife has focused his life on solving one murder case after another. He sculpts to keep himself grounded and pretty much lives day to day without really living or perhaps feeling...if that makes sense. It takes awhile to find out Gray’s backstory and I think there is still more to learn as the series continues. My main feeling was that Gray was like a weaver trying to untangle strands of thread before being able to weave the strands together into the fabric that would explain the murders taking place in this story. This book is for a reader who wants to be made to think and feel and care and try to figure out the mysteries that will solve the murder(s) that are taking place. This book made me feel for Gray and for Vivienne who works with him and for more than one other character that ended up with a raw deal in life. I really want to find out what happens next and hope that some good things will come to a few of the people I came to care about while reading about their lives. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I like to read the next book when it comes out? Definitely Thank you to the author who bequeathed me a copy of her book through NetGalley – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Nice read

    This is the first book in a new series with Chief Inspector Gray, set in Montreal, Canada. I've already read a series set in "French Canada" but here there's no French (except for two cases where there are long French sentences, not translated in English, but they aren't part of the plot so no use in understanding them, but a translation would have been better). Gray is a police inspector with a very good career, but with a sad past. His son died and his wife left three years before the time the book is set in. This backstory isn't bad at all, but it is too slow. The case is interesting, I like books that directly or indirectly talk about medicine, vaccines, why people are so stupid to not vaccinate their kids, etc... so I was involved since the beginning. Speaking about another non-main character (I mean a character that we probably won't see again in the future), it was easy to understand her secret. I mean, I understood Holly's secret as soon as she was on the phone with the wife. As I said the book is a bit slow because the main character's backstory but I really enjoyed it all together. I find that a kid is imprisoned in an institute, that he's almost killed by his prison mates and the institute's director does nothing to protect him even if the kid is a "criminal" (criminal with quotes because I don't think the word is correct since his age and the crime he was accused of) is something hard to believe to be true, I mean I can't accept that this stuff happens in the world. I liked the ending, I liked that I didn't get the killer as soon as I started the book (maybe because it's in English and I don't pay much attention to details) so I read it quite easily. Most likely I will read the next book in the series (at least to know what happens after this ending). Good job Ritu!

    Tried but had to give up.

    Couldn't finish this. Characters not believable. Dialogue far too wishy-washy. On the positive side it is free! I would be very miffed to have paid for it.
