Inline image OWAPstImg453288As clubbers in Cardiff are targeted by a brutal murderer, the police turn to unconventional means to catch the killer. Amy Lane, a desperately agoraphobic grey-hat hacker, only at peace with her fingers on a keyboard and her eyes on a screen, can peek into virtual corners in ways DI Bryn Hesketh would rather not know about. But he needs her skills, and turns to her for help. Jason, an ex-con looking to go straight, starts as Amy’s cleaner, but soon becomes much more.

                                                                    My Thoughts

Thanks to the brilliant characterisation of Amy and Jason, this book is lifted out of the category of police procedural and really hooks the reader in. It sets the scene beautifully for the subsequent books in the series and introduces the characters, warts and all. I particularly liked the way not everything about them is handed to you on a plate at the beginning. The whole set up is quite intriguing and you see how the friendship between Amy and Jason begins to form. I'm sure there is more to discover about them in the future.
I also enjoyed the pacing of the plot. The reader is led through the story and given just enough information. It feels a little like reading the story in real time. In addition to the investigation, there are some interesting themes within the writing. Amy's mental health issues and how others relate to her is woven into the story. Jason is adjusting to life back in society but recognises that she has particular needs and her police colleagues respect and accept her. There is more to explore within Amy's life.

In short: a great plot and some complicated characters make for a great read.
