Another British crime novel for me. They never get old because they are all so good. This is my first Gina Harte novel by Carla Kovach, but it won’t be my last. This is the 8th book in the series and I had no trouble following along without being caught up in reading the series.
Gina Harte, or Guv as her team calls her, is hunting a murderer. A young college age girl is found dead in the park. The book focuses on catching her killer. There are chapters from his victims, his point of view and Gina’s. I like when you get to see the story unfold from many angles.
And can I mention there is no shortage of suspects? At one point I even wondered if her team was all vetted and if they could be part of it. Slowly all of the suspects end up being eliminated so you can figure out the villain.
There is suspense and danger in this fast paced novel as Gina and her team rush to solve the case before more people are hurt. The author does a good job in developing a believable crime and has a diverse group of characters. And she is great at red herrings for even smaller plot points as you read the story.
I recommend this for anyone looking for a well thought out crime drama.
I’d like to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for my advanced reader copy.
