Characterful heroine debuts in a novel exploring the seedy side of life in New South Wales' capital city (perhaps one day for a change someone will explore the nice side of Sydney - it must have one!). The author is an ex-cop so the book feels authentic and the story is fast and tense. But despite a strong romantic theme it lacks the humanity and humour of Jon Cleary's wonderful Sydney-set Scobie Malone series (only one of which is now available in Audible - shame!).
Unimaginative title, too - there's already 3 or 4 other books with the same title.
Will I be reading more in the series? Maybe, but I don't feel compelled to go straight on to the second book.
Full marks to Kate Hosking, always welcome as a narrator.
What a great book! The plot was exciting and fast paced, full of mystery and suspense. Great characters I could both relate to and feel their emotions throughout the book. I enjoyed getting to know Lexie, Josh and the rest and can't wait to see what they'll be up against next! I truly loved the narrator, Kate Hosking, who's brilliant skill creates an obvious difference in the characters, and her natural Aussie accent matches perfectly with the written words of Australian author Karen Davis. A perfect fit between author and narrator. I'll be listening to the next in this series immediately!
