This book is nearly great. I like Sean’s character and have a sneaking suspicion he might grow into a fabulous lead detective in future books. Currently though, there something ever so slightly lacking for me.
Don’t let the three stars put you off, I think I am probably being a little harsh but I think there does need to be some distinction between the ‘nearly great’ and the great otherwise what is the point of reviews?
The good – Sean is great, a little impotent in this book but engaging none the less. His nan is ace. Lizzie the crime scene lady – the jury is out! It’s a good, if a little muddled, story and I definitely wanted to finish the book.
Although only 3 stars for To Catch A Rabbit by Helen Cadbury, I will be certain to seek out book two.
Synopsis: A dead woman is slumped against the door of a grubby trailer. She’s on Sean Denton’s patch, but who is she, how did she get there, and why doesn’t CID want to investigate? As Doncaster’s youngest PCSO, Denton takes the case into his own hands, but he’s way out of his depth.
People are reported mission and Denton must work backwards, before anyone else falls prey to South Yorkshire’s murky underworld of migrants and the sex trade.
