We have a real smarty pants in Gary Goodhew. A fast tracked graduate from Uni who's made up to a DC almost before he's left the hallowed grounds. He has a rich granny whom he's very close to and who's always on hand to lend a ear and give advice. The team he's a part of work well together, but of course there's always one spanner in the works, and in this case it's an arrogant, sexist, smarmy so'n'so named Kincaid.
The plot is complicated in places, and although I had an inkling who
the murderer was, it was the twists and turns of the investigation that brought a rather surprising conclusion.
I will definitely be Kindling up the next book in this series.
However, I have to say I really enjoyed it. It is a thrilling page-turner that I didn’t really want to put down for the two days it took to read it. I found the plot to be quite complex with a lot of shallow, unlikeable characters but it remained pacy and kept me turning the pages. The main character, Goodhew, was a little irritating in that he seems a bit spoilt and has an inability to stick to the rules, but it is refreshing to read a detective without an alcohol or other major problem in his life.
I will be very interested now to read the remainder of the series, everyone says they get better and, if this is the case, then they must be a real treat!
I really enjoyed reading about an area that I found familiar. Cambridge has great potential for a crime novel and then there's all those university colleges. I liked the character of Goodhew, I will be reading the sequels to see how his character develops. We are given interesting hints as to his background and the fact he is so young means that we will get to see him grow in the series. I hope. I did wonder how much Goodhew would be able to get away with his behaviour in a real life police team, but then again, it does make his character interesting so I understand why he is so quirky.
I did feel that the ending needed more development - I didn't feel particularly threatened by the baddie/s (don't want to give anything away!) but I'm hoping that this will happen in further novels. I will be reading the sequels, I'm interested to see how Goodhew develops and to see where else in Cambridge he goes! As a crime fiction fan, I felt that this novel kept me turning the pages to the end and interested enough to download the next one.
