Paying the Ferryman by Jane A. Adams

Paying the Ferryman: A Naomi Blake British Mystery (Naomi Blake, #10)Paying the Ferryman: A Naomi Blake British Mystery by Jane A. Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Firstly before saying how entertaining the book was Jane Adams has tackled the thorny issue of domestic abuse / violence. She has painted a horrifying picture of the circle of violence a couple can get into and importantly how it affects their children physically and mentally. If this mirrors reality and I have no reason to doubt it then the message is clear, something has to change.

This is a Naomi Blake mystery but she is only in the background as a consultant. The main character is Inspector Ryan Steel who is charged with investigating the murder of a local family for what appears no apparent reason. As they assemble all the available evidence it is clear there is a link to organised crime families, but is this fallout between the families or some other reason. Excellent and gripping story if not very sad in places. I would recommend this to my friends.
