S book enough a ichly deserved 5 stars #for a fabulous debut novella when this book #a fabulous debut novella When this book to my notice I liked the idea of a set in Gibraltar I visited Gibraltar c1993 so I had a sense of atmosphere It wasn t my intention to ead it straight away I added The Rock to my TBR list and then the next day I was drawn back to it by serendipity After eading the first 10% I got a feeling it was going to be a good A Life In School: What The Teacher Learned read I wasn t disappointed The pace was good for me and myeading mood There was a minimum of grisly description which made the story a mystery than a thriller With all the things happening in the world today GrenfellTower FinsburyPark Manchester LindtCafe etc etc I don t need a thriller The characters Broderick and Sullivan worked well together There was a level of predictability within the story but I like predictability it s comfortable The Rock is the first book of the Sullivan and Broderick Murder Mysteries I know I ll enjoy the next one The Poisoned Rock This was a bit fluffy with little substance to it I made the mistake of eading this straight after a Jeffery Deaver book and in comparison this one just seemed like a schoolboy story It is set in Gibraltar which caught my interest but you wouldn t know it other than the odd geographical eference It could just as well have been set in England I have been to the Rock a few times and I never had the feeling of being there throughout this thankfully short novel The humorous banter between the police was ok as was the ending hence I scored it 3 The House That Had Enough rather than 2 Ieceived this book yesterday morning as part of the Urbane Publications Book.

Club and thought I d give the first couple of chapters a go to see if I d enjoy it 150 pages later I d finished it and had thoroughly enjoyed this sharp crime novella and am itching to start on book two of the series The Poisoned RockSet on Gibraltar we follow Tamara Sullivan who is a detective sent over from London for 3 months and we get a glimpse of what went wrong in London and how she is thrown straight into the deep end with intriguing cases of what appear to be suicides and they affect those very closely in the police departmentThis book had a great pace about it and also fantastic touches of humour that you could understand that those in the police force need on a daily basis to see them through some of the tougher sights that they witness I also enjoyed the way the threads tied in well without being forced or feeling too manufactured
