My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve been reading my way through this series (in order!) and have been enjoying it. This book is good too, but I’m picking up some themes…
One: there are two crimes that are solved every book, one for the cops, one for the lawyers. Two: one of the women is assaulted to some degree (Lindsay got shot in a previous book, another one died a couple books ago… you get the idea).
I don’t seem to mind this, even though it makes certain things a bit predictable. What’s not predictable is which woman will be assaulted, and how the crimes will eventually be resolved.
Case in point, this book’s court case wasn’t fully resolved. The characters will never know the true ending, the reader is let in on the plot though. And the assault on the woman? It wasn’t really connected to either case. The crime was resolved by a victim!
So yes, even though some plot points are getting predictable, the books are still enjoyable because there is still enough unpredictability to keep my interest.
