This is just my kind of book - clear, unobtrusive writing, a good range of well-defined and credible characters and a terrific sense of place. Nothing flash or showy to distract from the story. It's a novel that one can lose oneself in while reading because the central characters become friends

direction for Clare Donoghue and detectives Lockyer and Bennett
