Excellent start to a great series
Reviewed in Australia on 12 December 2020
The first of a terrific set of crime novels set on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria, Australia. A convincing and authentic sense of place, believable and sympathetic characters, whose all too human flaws are part of the story. Importantly, the structure and depiction of police procedures is sound and sensible in the Australian context. You don't have to be a local to appreciate the stories, but for those of use who are, there are many moments with that spark of recognition - which all adds to authenticity and believability.
