Maniacal: A Detective Jade Monroe Crime Thriller Book 1 (Volume 1) - C.M. Sutter

Mostly, I only post reviews of books I strongly recommend - 4 stars at least. This partly because I do a lot of DNFing; if a story doesn't grab me pretty quickly, I tend to move on to the next book waiting impatiently in my two ever-growing TBR piles (the paper one and the digital one). Hey, life is short! 


With this one - Maniacal - it was touch and go for the first half of the book - a police procedural which was 90% police procedure. Then it began to liven up and I did, eventually, to my own surprise, actually finish the book and realise it was two o'clock in the morning. 


If you enjoy police procedurals, then this might be just your coffee and doughnut. If you don't, then give it a miss. Oh, and I did like Detective Sergeant Jade Monroe so perhaps I will return for more.
