November 2009 Book of the Month. A very human crime novel which concentrates on the detective and her family as much as on the crime she’s solving. It involves computer hacking and theft and sadly I guessed the culprit some five or six chapters before all was unravelled. See if you do too. Comparison: Lisa Gardner, P J Tracy, Tess Gerritsen.
