Now She’s Gone (Detective Rachel Prince #2)
by Alison James
An intriguing, intense crime thriller! I was on the edge of my seat with all the twists and turns trying to find who was the perpetrator was. It kept me guessing!!! I totally enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading more of DI Rachel Prince.
It all starts with Rachel been called to investigate the tragic death of a teenager, Emily van Meijer. DI Rachel Prince and DS Mark Brickall head to Edinburgh to investigate. The local police have ruled it a suicide. But as they dig further into the incident they find that Emily’s death is not the only one to have occurred in unusual circumstances. Rachel is lead down a path that leads to even darker events that she expected.
In this book we get to learn more about Rachel’s past. It is great to get to know more about her and find out her life isn’t so perfect. DS Mark Brickall and her have a great bond. The fun banter between them gives a little light-heartedness to the story, which in this case is needed.
This is an extremely well written police procedural thriller. It takes you down a dark and twisted road. But of course, one that you will enjoy. I was able to relate to the characters and feel every emotion with them.
Alison’s writing is intensifying with each book. She will make her mark and be up there with some of the best crime writers.
I only hope that this book does not go through the names changes as the first book did.
