Another great installment from Hunt who just seems to keep getting better and better. I really hope she starts to get some recognition internationally soon as she really does deserve it. I feel shes just as good as any Connelly or Billingham book Ive read recently. I do think its a lot tougher for Irish writers to break into the crime genre internationally than any other though as I suppose its easy to imagine London or Washington as the setting but Dublin isnt as familiar to most people.However that does not take from the fact that this book is up there with some of the best crime novels Ive ever read.
The topic of this book was the black market for organs which I have always found interesting as I didnt really understand how something like that would work. She develops the plot in such an interesting way that the story is just gripping. You get to see the real humans on both sides of the donation. These are desperate people who are being played by money hungry, evil humans at the worst time of their lives.I was surprised that Sarah stayed away for the whole book but I was even more surprised by the fact that I didnt really find myself missing her all that much.
John was always my favourite anyway but he outshone himself in this book. I do hope that he finds happiness though so I hope he finds Sarah in the next installment and we some kind of a happy ending!!
