This book is the 7th in the series. Although I was able to understand it just fine on its own, I wanted a little information about what had happened in previous books so that I could have a deeper understanding of Maeve's character and her actions. There are also one or two past events mentioned which I would've loved to learn more about.
The plot is captivating and this is developed by the many secrets the characters have and the good pace which is maintained the whole way through.
Personally, I thought there were one or two annoying characters, especially Georgia. However, I see this as a positive because it was great writing which got me so involved and caused me to have such a strong emotional response to her. Additionally, there was humour scattered throughout which is one of my absolute favourite things to find in a crime novel as it's rare that I can find books in this genre that actually make me laugh.
There was plenty of drama and tension, plenty of twists and turns and my suspicions were drawn in lots of different directions.
I didn't expect the ending and I found it a satisfying finish.
Whilst I would recommend reading this book, I would also say that I think it would be beneficial to read the other books in the series also, as I think this would give a greater development of the characters. Overall I'd give it 4 out of 5. It's captivating, has an enthralling plot and maintains a great pace throughout.
