Top critical review
Plodding and repetitive
Reviewed in Australia on 22 April 2020
A personal tragedy linked to police corruption are the basis of this police procedural. There are several deaths, illegal immigrant workers, and one determined police officer determined to get at the truth about her own past and its links to the present.
The pace is rather slow with a lot of repetitive description of inner thoughts, personal habits, police officers’ suspicions and suspicious police officers. The characters never quite came alive for me and I persevered to what was a predictable conclusion, with some space left for a sequel.
