4.5/5.0 Twists and turns.
This book didn’t grab me initially but I suppose is you’ve read the others in the series that may be different, but, the more I read the more I got into it and by half way through I was hooked. A great read that twists and turns with plenty of different story lines all the way through, if you like crime / detective books this is for you. A really good read, this is the twelfth in the Inspector Grace series so I’ll be back tracking now to pick up a few of the others. Beautifully written on loose ends left unattended.
The Blurb –
An ugly duckling as a child, Jodie Bentley had two dreams in life – to be beautiful and rich. She’s achieved the first, with a little help from a plastic surgeon, and now she’s working hard on the second. Her philosophy on money is simple: you can either earn it or marry it. Marrying is easy, it’s getting rid of the husband afterwards that’s harder, that takes real skill. But hey, practice makes perfect …
Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is feeling the pressure from his superiors, his previous case is still giving him sleepless nights, there have been major developments with his missing wife Sandy, and an old adversary is back. But worse than all of this, he now believes a Black Widow is operating in his city. One with a venomous mind… and venomous skills. Soon Grace comes to the frightening realization that he may have underestimated just how dangerous this lady is.
