Quite a good mystery, full of potential. Just a shame that the author didn't manage to maximise that potential.A lot of the sub-plots were thrown into the mix and then completely ignored. For instance, why make Edna such a major factor only to ignore her possible connection and guilt in the end? Why bring in the romantic interest and then have him wander off again? The author does bring up an aspect of society and past crimes that are committed and swept under the rug, due to the location of said crimes. Crimes against women and especially women of minority groups have a tendency to be forgotten and get locked into cold case storage. That important aspect was hidden within this fairly tepid crime story.There are some errors and formatting issues within the book, which could do with a quick fix.Other than that it was a pleasant afternoon read.
