Set in areas I know around the Midlands, we re introduced to a new character, DI Jackman A very likable character protagonist who I would want fighting my cause in my corner Not that I want to get into trouble or anything A married detective with one daughter, he has a backstory that is both sad and touching To say would be too much so I ll leave that bit there.

I enjoyed this book in large parts and overall it was a good solid novel but it failed to hold my interest totally and at times I didn t care what happened in the story Maybe I have been spoilt as I have read a few exceptional novels really and this failed to live up to them. I felt that the novel started well but then drifted along and failed to capitalise on the good start Slow at times and certainly drawn out and I even predicted the finish. A good read but not a classic.
My View Jane Isaac is a fabulous writer I enjoyed her last book, The Truth Will Out and found this new release even enjoyable Her characters are the everyday, the people you might casually know or bump into in the supermarket, or at school, or friends or a friend Her writing takes the ordinary every day person and manipulates their life when they are touched by an extraordinary event In this case we have a birthday drinks and an argument between lovers that has dire consequences for several of the characters, their lives will never be the same again There are plenty of opportunities to reflect the what ifs , what if I had turned back and kept walking , what if I had gone back inside what if Life s direction can be changed so quickly, without thought A brilliant op I am against the general public so far with this book, mostly getting five star reviews I think it s because I read a lot of crime with similar themes abduction, kidnapping that I am able to compare and sift the REALLY good from the average This book I put at just above average compared to others I have read that have thrilled me from page oneI am buried alive.

But, as another student vanishes and Min grows ever weaker, time is running out Can Jackman track down the k With The Truth Will Out , Jane established herself as a confident and strong crime writer A writer to look out for She gained a big fan in me I could not wait to get my hands on her latest novel Before It s Too Late. The book introduces us to Detective Inspector Will Jackman, an extremely likeable workaholic copper Jackman is put in charge of a high profile missing person case A Chinese student has disappeared on her way home from the pub in the beautiful Stratford upon Avon, following a row with her boyfriend We see Min Li held captive in a pit, alone and afraid It seems that time is running out for Min, as the search gathers pace and another student goes missing. From the first page, I was completely and utterly fascinated by Min Li I loved the way we got insight into her life in China and her culture, as well a
