If you’ve read any of Galbraith’s work you may have come across DS Alice Rice before, but even if you haven’t this is an easy book to get into.

Prior knowledge of the leading lady is not essential.

Set in Edinburgh - I loved having good knowledge of the city and being able to picture exactly where Galbraith was describing during the action - there’s a real exploration of the police officer’s personal life as well as her day to day career.

The body of a half naked woman is discovered in a park and a murder investigation is launched.

There are few clues to her identity and she’s not been reported missing.

Then when a dead clergyman is found, naked in another Edinburgh park, DS Rice wonders if it’s the work of the same killer.

As the investigation unravels, DS Rice is in search of the connection between the apparently motiveless attacks.

This is a good read if you’re a fan of crime fiction and as a bit of a page turner it won’t be long before you’ve reached the end.
