Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura. Within a week, the DNA lab delivers a stunning verdict.

I will be honest, I took a chance as it was on offer ... Very pleased I did

I have read Steig Larson and Jo Nesbo and enjoyed both, so I thought I would give this author a shot.

The story is well crafted with back story for the characters to add colour. The book runs on two timelines that connects at the end. The victim's story and the detectives'

While it is very serious and grim in parts, humours is also added in the form of the detectives' assistant, Assad, who becomes an unlikely but valuable partner to Karl, the detective

The narration is very good. It is set in Denmark but the narrator cleverly uses regional British dialects to bring the various characters to life.

I would thoroughly recommend it and look forward to reading more from this author

If you are a Jack Reacher fan and haven't read this one yet then add it to your must read wishlist. Reacher gets pulled into a mystery involving some old army friends, when he discovers they have been murdered, he is determined to get to the bottom of it.

Lee Child artfully peels back the layers of the onion bit by bit pulling the reader in, while Reacher and his old buddies trace back the demise of their friends. The dynamic he has with old friends also gives Reacher pause for thought over his lifestyle and rekindles past intimacies.

Reacher employs his usual cold logic to the problem and delivers his own unique form of justice
