I like a good murder/mystery and this one wasn’t too bad. In fact I could see it as a movie or tv series.
Della is a reporter digging around for the next big story, married/divorced/still seeing her ex/husband/now boyfriend (yeah I got confused too!
She’s known Abit for years and counts him as a close and dear friend.
Vesper junior (Abit) or Rabbit as his wife calls him is happily married with kids and plays in a band with his wife and friends. Life might be dull, but Abit likes it that way thank you.
I felt so sorry for Vesper, he got the nickname because his father always called him “a bit slow”, which got shortened over time. I don’t know if I could be called Abit and know it’s nasty and not a cute nickname!
So we have Wallis and Abit bonding over music and using it to track killers, rather ingenious if you ask me.
Della uses her contacts in the paper to dig deeper, hoping to get a story out of it. But wanting to help the FBI (who she shared a sizzling kiss with!)
Reading the cover I did think a ménage. Sadly no, but in a way I’m glad, I don’t think it would have worked out😉
I liked how we came along for the ride, we saw all the thought processes and saw glimpses of their lives.
But it all gets a little too close to home when Abit’s kids get kidnapped by the killer! Will he be able to raise the ransom money in time?
The killer was pretty smart, and catching up with him was good. And a couple of clues might have you guessing who it might be.
I think there we just a few too many characters in this book, not sure we needed all those extra’s. But other than that, they were all pretty solid.
This book worked backwards, we see Abit running away from the killer, we don’t see who it it, we just see him run…..
Told mainly in Della’s and Abit POV. It needed just a little polishing, I felt something was missing. The connection between Abit and Della was good, the connection between Abit and Wallis wasn’t as well felt.
But I’d happily read another book with these characters in. They did make me smile, and at one point I did get a “scooby doo” moment 😉
