Nothing To Hide by James Oswald
About The Book
Suspended from duty after her last case ended in the high-profile arrest of one of Britain’s wealthiest men, DC Constance Fairchild is trying to stay away from the limelight. Fate has other ideas . . .
Coming home to her London flat, Constance stumbles across a young man, bloodied, mutilated and barely alive. She calls it in and is quickly thrown into the middle of a nationwide investigation . . . It seems that the victim is just the latest in a string of similar ritualistic attacks.
No matter that she is off-duty, no matter that there are those in the Met who would gladly see the back of her, Con can’t shake her innate determination to bring the monsters responsible for this brutality to justice.
Trouble always seems to find her, and even if she has nothing to hide, perhaps she has everything to lose . . .
DC Constance Fairchild is not living the best moments in her working life, she uncovers a senior police officer in a disturbing case, so she’s not well seen by her partners. The press doesn’t like her either, she is too “posh”; so her boss wants her to stay out of the public eye for a while. But of course it can not be so easy! She will find a dying man near her house and it seems that is not the only case with similar MO; you can’t expect that she will not stay away from it. 😉
This is my first case of Cons, but I’ll have to say that I really liked her style; perseverant and brave, doesn’t have any doubt to risk her life to discover the truth, of course following all the clues she finds on her investigation. I was a little surprised with the taunt of “paranormal” in the case, it was not too evident, but it was original.
I missed that we really don’t know much about Cons or her thoughts, maybe in the next case we will discover more about her insight perspective and a little bit more of personal life. Because we will meet her family, but her relation is quite special to say the least, we will meet a few of them in a wedding Cons will have to go…
This is a series that I will follow for sure, I liked the main character and I am intrigued with how the author describes the character and creates the plot.
Nothing To Hide has a little bit of everything that any crime lover searches for a book, you have to read it to discover it by yourself!
