This is part two in the excellent series staring police officer Alexander Blix and blogger Emma Ramm. This book starts at a New Year Party; and what a party is is. An explosive one as a bomb goes off on the stroke of twelve and the devastation is fatal. Blix and Ramm are on the scene and Blix pulls a survivor from the waters of the harbour. Blix instantly recognises her as the mother of two-year-old Patricia Semplass, who was kidnapped on her way home from kindergarten ten years earlier … and never found.
Blix and Ramm begin their investigations into who the bomber could be. And when another bomb goes off and the terrorist threat is increased. But when the survivor dies and is later found not to be who she has been identified as Blix suspects something more than terrorism is afoot.
The story is a slow burn of a read after the initial explosion and is a mixture of office politics, and though they are both after the same ends there seems to be friction between Blix and Ramm. But they are a great duo and are both tenacious though they both rub each other the wrong way.
The authors though a duo are writing as one and who wrote what is seamless and the writing is excellent and of a quality that draws the reader through the pages wondering what is next.
