About the Book
You think you know him. Until he’s dead.
When Cameron Swift is gunned down outside his family home, DC Beth Chamberlain is appointed Family Liaison Officer: a dual role that requires her to support the family, and also investigate them.
As the case unfolds and the body count climbs, Beth discovers that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has secrets.
Even the dead…
With thanks to the author for the copy received.I have read and enjoyed all of Jane Isaac’s previous books so was looking forward to reading this book, the first in new series.
Beth has been assigned as a FLO to help the family of Cameron Swift. But this case is different to what the team expected it to be and there are others who’re affected by his death. Beth isn’t the type of officer who just accepts what people say as face value and digs deeper.
One of the reasons I like the author’s books so much is because all of her lead characters in her three series are all likeable and if you could have them as friends you would do. They are not to good to be true nor do they have a dubious past. They are just normal hard-working people who have had hardships but don’t let them effect their judgement or take over their lives. It’s not something I experience often.
I read a lot of crime fiction but I can’t think of any where the lead character is a FLO and I found it very refreshing. It was interesting to see and showed how hard it must be to work closely with a family who have suffered loss and seeing them cope in different ways and how hard to was to do everyday things.
The case is a fascinating one and totally unexpected.It made me wonder how common it was, not the murder but the situation that various people found themselves in.
I had felt a little sad towards the end but there is hope and I’m looking forward to reading book two.
