This is a good series from Bryndza. Kate Marshall is a complicated character who you want to like, but you feel her standoffish nature in every chapter. This prickliness does add to her style of investigation and how she interacts with people and suspects. The story jogs along, and there are enough tib bits for you to start piecing the story together, but little bits leave enough doubt and keep you reading. I'll definitely stick with this series.
