New author to me for my 54th book read in 2020 and it’s firmly in the romcrim category. Wasn’t too sure what to expect but thought I’d give it a go.
I took an instant dislike to the portrayal of the local cops being so dimwitted that the FBI had to come in and take charge. [This the-police-are-too-dim event is used in my works of fiction and is becoming tiresome.]
There’s a double murder to kick off the story with an unbelievably coincidental relevance to a death twenty years before of the father of the person who discovered the latest horror.
Book moves along at a pedestrian pace with predictable outcomes, and there are few page turning moments. Even the red herrings were dead on arrival.
This just didn’t resonate and is a series ender for me.
