Normally I'm a huge fan of Haynes' works (Into the Darkest Corner, Human Remains) - I just love the way she writes about such difficult and often disturbing topics (with brutal honesty). So, I couldn't help but get excited at the prospect of jumping into her new book, Under A Silent Moon. Its the first in a new series she's writing and it deals with a police intelligence analyst (think CSI). From the blurb on the back, it sounded like it was going to be quite an intriguing read. Unfortunately, I never got that far into the book. For some reason, I just could not engage with the story at all. I found it to be somewhat confusing and didn't really enjoy reading the procedural aspect of the investigation. I never connected with DCI Louisa Smith and didn't really care what happened to her. As much as I wanted to enjoy this book, I found that I couldn't. It was a DNF for me.
But don't listen to me. According to other bloggers, this book is a terrific story filled with loads of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end. Check out what else they had to say about Under A Silent Moon here.
