Shallow Waters review….4 stars
DI Hannah Robbins takes us through a “murder investigation of the worst kind – that of a child”.
Right from the beginning we are taken to the darkest realms of life…with the opening chapters pulling the reader right into the rubbish infested alley which is the first body dump.
Debut novels can be difficult…building characters and
ensuring that the reader is left wanting to find out more. This one worked for me…who are her family, why are her memories so painful + where is the relationship with journalist, Ethan going?
Despite the chilling subject of the book it left me wanting more. Gruesome but not overly graphic. My only gripe was DI Robbins being allowed to return to work straight from her hospital bed after an explosion which was a bit too unrealistic.
Excellent start to a new series and looking forward to the next book. Highly Recommended
