Finally nice enough to read outside. Unlike most of North America, we have had cold and yucky weather here so far. Glad this week is supposed to warm up.
So well written, great character development & psychological insight. I thoroughly enjoyed ( if that‘s the word ) this one. This is the first in the Inspector Lynley series .... I have the 2d downloaded already- Payment In Blood. Looking forward to it. Great read
An unknown murder victim in a second-hand dress hits Maigret's soft spot for the downtrodden and unfortunate. Before he can find her killer, he needs to understand the victim and piece together her life. He is aided by a junior inspector, Lognon, known by all as Inspector Hard-Done-By due to the chip on his shoulder. There is a real feeling of sadness in this one, both in the lives of the victim and Lognon, and in the casual workings of fate. 4.5*

I put this audiobook on hold way back in December, and it finally came in a couple weeks ago. It was a suggestion from @LauraJ for #newyearwhodis, hosted by @monalyisha! It was an interesting, but difficult read, as it delves into the gritty details of brutal cases and the minds of serial killers. My only complaint is that Douglas came across as a bit egotistical and I got the impression that he was never wrong about a profile/case. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Finally finished this one! Wow, this was really good although of course upsetting at times. Ann Rule did a really good job.
