    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.

    The Detective's Daughter

    A very convuluted, spell-binding story . Characters were very interesting . An author who clearly puts lots of time in to constructing her stories .

    Intriguing

    Every book in this series is a must buy. Sadly I read the Dog Walker 1st which as it turned out is the last book in this series, I can still relate to this book as it shows how the people met each other. It's an Excellent read and I can't wait to read book 2 in the series which I've bought and is already in my library.

    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
