The Investigator by Chris Taylor: My Review


Welcome to the New Week! 
Got another review for you...





Set in Australia, the story centers on two main characters: Kate Collins and Detective Riley Munro. Twenty-four-year-old Kate Collins, after running away from home at fourteen years old and then subsequently building a life for herself as an successful art dealer, returns home after finding out that her wheelchair-bound mother has disappeared without a trace. She believes that her well-connected step-father, former Commander of the Watervale Police Department, is responsible. Reluctantly Detective Riley Munro, new to said police department and taken out of his previous prestigious position due to betrayal and scandal within the ranks, takes on the case and the task to investigate Darryl Watson. 

Now, at first, I wasn’t crazy about Riley. To be honest, he really annoyed me. When he first meets Kate, he’s attracted to her and, seemingly because of this, it takes a great deal of prodding and time to get him to do his job and investigate the case to its fullness; general smarts, common sense and all.
“It doesn’t matter what she looks like. IT’S YOUR JOB. DO YOUR JOB.”

But, ultimately, he does do his job and, the further you read in the story, you find the fullness of his character and characteristics. 
And you start to like the guy and root like crazy for him.

In addition, you’ll love the story. It will definitely have you on the edge of your seat. I read this in a day.

I’d give this one four out of five stars!

I’m new to Chris Taylor's works but I’m certain this won’t be my last read from his author.
