The Laughing Policeman - post III

The cases of both the current murder and the previous ones unravel with cars being the key to the later and the occupant of one of the seats near the dead policeman another. With those pieces of the jigsaw the pace quickens and the conclusion draws nearer.

Just like the other books written by this husband and wife team the touches of detail are the things that make it all so believable. Characters that are bit=part players get depth and those that are centre stage like Beck become deeper with his marriage and health both deteriorating again through this book.

The relationships between the police officers are also something that is just right and totally believable with the stress of the case forcing them at each other’s throats.

A review will follow soon…
