The Killing Hand – PD Martin

No Gravatar

This is the 4th novel in the Sophie Anderson series by Australian author P D Martin. The central character is an Australian working as an FBI profiler. The story moves along well and seems to give an insight into  the law enforcement and gang culture of LA.

Being the fourth in the series there is previous history which dealt with well enough without re telling the previous books. However I did find the style hard going. There was in my opinion too much description which was superfluous.  Detail of desk and the cut of clothes and so on, perhaps I me getting old and grumpy.

The central character has visions that relate to the people involved in the case. Pulling up a sort rewind that is always incomplete and not really helpful.

However I picked the book cheap and it made sense in the end. Not sure if will hunt down the rest haven’t had a vision about that yet.
