The Dead Won’t Sleep – AnnaSmith

Anna Smith uses her role as a journalist as the backdrop of her new series featuring Rosie Gilmour. The Dead Won’t Sleep pulls no punches as it tackles police corruption and a paedophile ring – Rosie uncovers some of the most high profile characters in police and the judiciary – but will her editor let the stories go to press and what personal risks is Rosie taking as she stops at nothing to get her story.
Rosie is a strong character with a tragic background story which is the driving force behind her obsession with her job. At times I found her a little bit frustrating though especially in her approach to the child abuse story – I’m not sure that anyone could have ignored serious protocols in relation to the interviewing of child witnesses – even in order to uncover what was going on as this could have jeopardized the whole investigation. Despite this I thought it was a strong start to the series and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the books
