    Easy reading

    This is one of those books that I find difficult to rate. It is the second book in the series and I think that is one of the problems I have. This is the type of series that you have to read in order because there are references that I don't understand. I liked the writing and found it an easy read although some parts felt unnecessary. Some scenes could also have been more rounded off. The series is set in Limerick in Ireland. A young woman is found murdered at the rehabilitation centre where she worked and a 15 year old troubled girl is missing. Everyone is wondering if she was involved in the murder but to the reader it is obvious that she found the body and decided to run. Detective Iris Locke has to figure out what happened and more importantly find the missing girl who has epilepsy. It felt a bit unrealistic that a 15 year old can avoid a whole police force who is out searching for her. There is also a reference to a special place that her sister knew of but it is not explained. Maybe the book would have had more of an impact if I have read the 1st one.

    A fast paced, action packed and well written mystery that kept me on the edge till the end. I liked the well thought cast of characters and the solid mystery. Even if I didn't have any big issues with the characters or the plot I think it's better to read the previous instalment and there's quite a lot of backstory. Recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    REALLY WORTH READING

    I read and really liked both Iris Locke's adventures. The plot of this one is engaging and it gets more and more thrilling as one reads, if at times a bit unrealistic (I trust the heroine is not going to have yet another chance meeting with menacing entities in the dark in the next one). However the characters are vibrantly alive and truly well drawn, and the more they got fleshed out, the more I wanted to know them better. In a way the most interesting intrigue is not the main crime that the protagonists have to solve but the underlying one that flows still to be uncovered through both novels from a past that cannot be put to rest. The style is truly very good. I will look forward to the next novel with anticipation.

    Entriging story.

    Would recommend to a friend. My grand-children are avid readers and are eager to read this book. My first experience with E Books and can't wait to purchase another book. Thinking of "My Sister's Bones".

    Brilliant

    Brilliant read, a real page turner. This was the second book out of two and although I read them the wrong way round, (doh) it didn't spoil the story at all. Brilliant writing I couldn't put this down.
