Exciting police procedural.

I enjoyed this book. I wish I had read the other three books first. The characters were well-conceived and believable and the police procedural elements were fantastically written.
I felt the plot was somewhat unbelievable in terms of the motive for the murders, but it was fast paced and well narrated.
I look forward to reading the first three in the series!

Fab police procedural!

The Twisted Web is book 4 in the Detective Hannah Robbins series, and can certainly be read as a standalone, although for fans of a series, you might want to start with book 1, Shallow Waters if you want to enjoy the characters’ progression – and don’t want to find out prematurely about the odd character’s death!

The murder of a real-crime blogger followed by the very public dumping of his body drops the police into their very own social media nightmare, where viral posts can drive public opinion faster than you can say police media liaison officer.
I love Rebecca’s police procedurals – they have the authenticity that being a retired police detective can bring, but her skill in slipping police methodology into the story without it feeling laboured is excellent, and there’s always something new and interesting that I’ve never come across before!

Although we have a good idea who the perpetrator is early on, and through the use of mixed first and third-person narrative we have the jump ion the police in that respect, there is still a great reveal towards the end that I didn’t see coming.
Another fab (and well-paced) book from Rebecca, which is excellently narrated by Colleen Prendergast.

Really enjoyable

I loved this book. The story focuses on the damage that can be inflicted by social media but for me that was just a side show. I loved the main character Hannah, the wonderful combination of writing and narration really brought her to life and I am going to have to read the series.

Very Engaging

My first read by this author Rebecca Bradley in this case, I listen to the audio version and will certainly look out for her books again. Most enjoyable and it's one of the first books that I have read that you know who the culprit is from the very beginning. At the.moment Social Media is all the rage and why if people take offense when they put something on Social Media that somebody has criticized beats me if you can't take criticism don't use it we all have opinions. Prime example.in this story, this poor soul tried to do someone a favour like saving a life and Social Media bloggers only put what they thought would get attention doesn't matter if somebody gets hurt in the process, because that somebody has to do something about it!!! don't they. What he does, does not bear thinking about and here enters D I Hannah Robbins to sort it out and try to find out the causes and reasons behind it all. Will not spoil the story but the police do a great job, lots of thoughts and surmises and she has a good rapport with her staff. Can she get to the bottom and see other points of view. It was very engaging and the narration was superb, but at the same time, I would not like to read too many where you know who the culprit is from the beginning, I do like to use the little grey cells and have a guess.
