Totally Superb

The Binding Room by Nadine Matheson is an absolutely superb contemporary crime thriller. It is the second book in the Inspector Anjelica Henley series and can be read as a stand-alone. I would recommend reading book one The Jigsaw Man first so that you can see the character progression.

Inspector Anjelica Henley is a wonderful, realistic leading lady. She is not perfect but she is believable as she is tenacious and hard working. She will not rest until justice is served. Following on from events in book one, we witness her PTSD as the past events haunt her.

There was an eclectic mix of shady characters as the London underworld came to life.
