I am hooked on following Paula McGuire the forensic psychologist who returns home to Northern Ireland from England to work on a short term assignment She has now been there through four novels but readers don't really know if she'll stay or if she'll go to paraphrase The Clash McGowan has created an interesting and compelling character that keeps me coming back to these booksThe author ends each books with a cliff hanger as well as leaving readers wondering what will happen next in Paula's personal life For that reason I recommend reading these books in order That is also the reason I cannot say much about the details of each novel Paula is one of too many residents of Northern Ireland who had a family member disappear during the Troubles This novel continues to explore the mystery of her long absent mother As I am wont to do I am fussy about details when I read In this novel it was toddlers who spoke in full grammatical sentences like five year olds one of my academic specializations is child language I also found the story line in this novel too convoluted and in the end I stopped caring I enjoyed the narration as the narrator deftly changed accents and managed to convey male voices without sounding ridiculous This was 35 stars for me but I am bumping it up as McGowan is currently the only Northern Irish woman writing a crime novel series
