MISSING PERSONS (DCI Morton # 5.) – Daniel & Sean Campbell

Missing PersonsLongboats on the London waterways – often moving berths to save money, or to avoid people you don’t want to find you – can be a headache to the law when your are trying to locate a murderer. When a girl from DI Rafferty’s past asks for help to find her boyfriend, she doesn’t hesitate to help look for him, as long as she doesn’t annoy her boss, DCI Morton. Until his body turns up in a canal…

Suffice it to say that this Instafreebie top-to-toe is well readable, but the first I’ve read in the DCI Morton Series. It was a decent stand-alone, so if they are all that way, there are more good reads out there waiting. It is an exciting police procedural with a team of varied, mostly believable, characters. It seems to keep up with modern technology and raises again the current debate of just how much surveillance is for our own good and how much is an invasion of privacy.

Campbell, authors

Over-many POVs are inescapable in most crimefiction, currently, especially when there is a team of cops and a handful of suspects, but any possible pruning would be good.

This copy was an Instafreebie selection, chosen by chance. Not all of those selected are chosen for review. Indeed, not all are finished, although most are. Good luck to all Indie authors; please support each other by way of reviews. We all want reviews but are not always prepared to give them in return.
