The author, Dr Leah Giarratano uses her vast experience as a psychologist to full affect in the fleshing out of believably flawed characters in this easy to read Australian crime novel.


Although predictable in places and the characters have some overly convenient abilities or job descriptions, I found the book to be well paced and refreshingly familiar in its Australian content; a nice change to American cop shows that currently saturate our television screens.


This is the second book in the series with Jill Jackson of the NSW Police as its main character, but found this book to stand easily on its own.
