Ouldn t be on duty should he Unfortunately this is one of those cases where a is one of those cases where a just didn t work or me It s my irst book in the series but I don t think reading the irst two would have Made Me Like The Fourth Friend Any me like The Fourth Friend any It doesn t have the pacing I like and the characters are hardly described except or Carter There is a character list at the end of the book with details about the characters but I didn t realize it was there until I inished the book so it doesn t really help I think it should be at the beginning of the book I did not connect with any of the characters and I also constantly Torrent of Portyngale: Re-Edited from the Unique Ms. in the Chetham Library, Manchester (Classic Reprint) found my mind wandering while reading the book I just couldn t remain interested The ending is not predictable but it is certainly awful I don t think I ll be revisiting this series This is a 35 star readDare I say it Iound the beginning of this third offering in the Jackman and Evans series uite boring which is almost sacrilegious because I genuinely love anything written by the author I m glad I persevered though as by the time I d reached about a third of the way into the book the pace picked up dramatically and I was riveted by the varied investigations which ended up being connected and were woven together superbly culminating in a shocking revelatory and heart breaking ending This was very much a psychological crime mystery with heavy emphasis on the psychological and was very current with the topic of abuse within relationshipsAn enjoyable entertaining read that galloped home towards the end nevertheless I elt this offering not uite up to par with the author
