My Highly Caffeinated Thought: The ideal beginning to a topnotch crime novel series.
There is no secret how much I love Sara Blaedel's books. From the minute I dove into THE KILLING FOREST, I was hooked on this gritty multifaceted suspense series. Now, THE MIDNIGHT WITNESS brings us all back to the beginning with the origin of Louise Rick.
Here is what I love about Blaedel's writing. She has the ability to weave together the elements of the personal relationships of the characters and the investigation seamlessly. Then, she ties in the mood and atmosphere of Denmark to complement the mystery unfolding.
I will say, though this book was amazing in laying down the foundation of a stellar series, it is not as gritty as some of the other stories to come down the road. However, this is plenty dark and twisty for fans of crime books with a heavy concentration on police procedure.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Rookie homicide detective Louise Rick makes her debut in this thrilling #1 international bestseller that launched 3 million copy bestselling writer Sara Blaedel's incredible career.
A young woman is found strangled in a park, and a male journalist has been killed in the backyard of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
Detective Louise Rick is put on the case of the young girl, but very soon becomes entangled in solving the other homicide too when it turns out her best friend, journalist Camilla Lind, knew the murdered man. Louise tries to keep her friend from getting too involved, but Camilla's never been one to miss out on an interesting story. And this time, Camilla may have gone too far...
Emotionally riveting and filled with unexpected twists, THE MIDNIGHT WITNESS is a tour-de-force from international phenomenon Sara Blaedel.
