A brutal description of the murder of the Lawrence family sets the tone for What She Saw, leaving the reader in no doubt that this book is going to be a pacy and gripping crime thriller.
Detective Sergeant Jenna Morgan also sets her stall out early and it is easy to get sense of who she is and what makes her tick. Her strength and determination is apparent, as are her flaws, which makes her an easy character to like and feel on side with. She becomes a very real person very quickly – the author does an excellent job of making her feel like someone the readers knows inside and out.
I won’t go into too much detail about the storyline itself as I don’t want to give any spoilers but suffice it to say that this is as much a police procedural as it is a crime thriller and I found the whole thing to be thoroughly engaging.
As well as liking Jenna, I thought DC Mason Ellis was a great character and I really enjoyed their interactions. The side story with the dogs was fabulous! Also loved the little old lady.
