Searching For Clues
Fallen Angel by Jenny O’Brien is a marvellous contemporary crime thriller that draws the reader in from the start. It is the third book in the Detective Gaby Darin series but can be read as a stand-alone.
A quiet weekend ramps up as a cold case is investigated. At first it is believed to be an isolated incident without any evidence but it soon becomes clear that rapid crime solving is needed before other cases are added.
The reader becomes entangled in the story from the start as we want to know the truth and find out why it happened.
Law enforcement agencies run a tight ship. They function as a family looking after their own. The reader witnesses the cares and niggles that come with family life.
The action is set in North Wales in Llandudno which was great for me as I know the area well as I have holidayed there many times. The familiar locations enabled the book to really come alive for me.
The leading lady is realistic and likable. She is hard working and a team player.
I really enjoyed Fallen Angel. The book consumed my every waking moment – if I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about the case! It was a marvellous read. I hope to read much more by Jenny O’Brien.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
