I wanted to like this book and it was ok, just ok. I have 3 issues with this book. The first is the narrator...WHY IS SHE BRITISH! The story is set in America, the midwest no doubt. The british accent is annoying and distracting. The main character is boring and cookie cutter. I've read a couple other books by this author and it's the same character, different name. Even the same inappropriate narrator. The killer can be compared to Yo Sammity Sam from a Bugs Bunny cartoon. He is about as menacing as Yo Sammity cutting up carrots and celery in a huge pot to cook Bugs in. Clearly the author has a formula and doesn't think it's necessary to stray from it.

I read a lot of crime mysteries and thrillers. This is the 1st book I've read by Blake Pierce. I didn't finish it.
Here's my issues:
1st - For the audio book - why is a British narrator reading this? WHY? It's distracting at best, especially when American phrases are used.
2nd - A 25 year old detective? Nope.
3rd - The men of the force being jerks to her, when White is supposedly a prodigy? Why are they working at cross purposes? Even if the male police/detectives aren't used to working with a female, why sabotage the investigation with ego posturing?
4th - I'm not a police officer, but even I know that you don't call a victim's work place for 5 minutes and call it done. Stupidity. And, you don't leave without questioning all coworkers, asking for security footage, etc. Doesn't inspire confidence.
5th - Why dismiss lead investigators from a scene because there are reporters? 😤😤😤
This fictional Omaha police force isn't even comically bad. They're straight up incompetent. The book just made me angry.
Didn't finish at 40%. Read this to punish yourself.
