his kill dates from long ago Truth or smokescreen A deadly game of cat and mouse is taking place, but who is playing whom Deftly plotted, with characters into which you can really sink your teeth, view spoiler or slice up with a knife hide spoiler I m becoming a big fan of S.J Bolton It s not that there s anything terribly new here but I like the way this woman thinks and puts a story together Interestingly, I read Dead Scared, the second Lacey Flint outing, first What made me go back and read the first Now You See Me was the excellent interview and talk with the author on The Readers , July 2nd Part of The Readers Summer Reading Club, the first segment was a talk with S.J Bolton, intrigued me to go back and set the Lacey Flint character in my mind I postponed the last segment of the podcast, loaded with spoilers, until after I read the book That I read Dead Scared first didn t hamper my enjoyment of either but I did learn things about Lacey that I didn t know in Now You See Me The character Lacey Flint and her interaction with other members of the London Police is what makes the read for me The mindset of a female policewoman, her means of detection, her working relationship with male staff, and general dealings with the public, are interesting to explore Now You See Me is classed as crime fiction I do like crime but I love it when it has strong psychological themes as well as some good twists and turns One review that I read thought there was nothing original in Now You See Me that this story h Finally It took forever to get my hands on this book and then it took me forever to read it, howver, despite the fact that I never thought of it as a can t put it down page Turner, this was a very solid book.Now You See Me is the first in the Lacey Flint series by S.J Bolton who also publishes under Sarah Bolton Someone in London is copying Jack the Ripper s murders and the MET is called in to investigate The twist is that the murders are not random and DI Flint appears to in the center of it all.The research on the actual Ripper murders was truly excellent As an historian I appreciate this type of accuracy and the documentation at the end notes for additional reading as well Hilton s writing is very good although at times I felt I was given tidbits of information regarding the character s background for shock valu I have read Now You See Me NYSMan embarrassing number of times The superb plotting, fascinating characters and spooky settings keep drawing me back in Of course the problem with re reading this book is that I never have the shivery thrill of the first time I don t care It s still worth it With my first reading, Bolton kept me guessing throughout the book until I figured something out and then realized, no, I had not On subsequent readings I read for the pure pleasure of language, plotting and characterization NYSM preceded all of those Gone Girl Bad on a Train With a Terrible Marriage books apologies to someone outshining all of those supposed twisty turny books Ms Bolton is the James Bond of twisty writers Nobody does it better DC Lacey Flint is the only witness to the death of a woman who dies in her arms
