About THE GIRL IN THE GLASS
Cove Member Nicole Reviews THE GIRL IN THE GLASS!
Crime thrillers tend to have a certain formula to them that you can rely on. The Girl In The Glass was a fresh departure from that and kept me on my toes throughout the book.
James Hayman is a new-to-me author and I enjoyed his method of storytelling. This book starts quickly with the death of a young female artist back in 1904. We flash forward to current time and learn of her descendent having identical physical features and talents as the original artist who died so many years before and who succumbs to death in an eerily similar way. But who is responsible for this latest death and why are the details so vague about the death back in 1904? Are the murders related to each other? I had to know.
The police on the case are partners who have been together for years and who have an interesting history. They clearly have feelings for each other but the right time just hasn't presented itself to act in those feelings. Yet...
The book was smartly written and there were just enough twists and turns to keep me interested while also having interesting characters throughout the book. The detective and sergeant were the stars of the book and I'm interested in reading the other books in the series to read about their history and see if their relationship develops - if it does.
Great book that I would recommend to others who enjoy crime thrillers. McCabe & Savage - I'll be back!
