The Shining Skull

by Kate Ellis

I think I’ve talked enough about the shortcomings of this series in the past. But I’ll mention something new(ish): this time I thought this was the wrong book to read if you were looking for good police procedure - I can’t believe that this is how anyone would handle a kidnapping.

However I guess the short answer (if there was a question) is that I’m not after pin point accuracy in lieu of a good yarn, and Kate Ellis can spin a decent yarn.

One of the things I like about this series in the thinly disguised version of Devon used for location - a short scene set at “Whitepool Sands” had me remembering my daughter falling in the sea at Blackpool Sands for the rest of the book.

Good entertainment.
