Those We Left Behind by Stuart Neville

Those We Left Behind (DCI Serena Flanagan, #1)Those We Left Behind by Stuart Neville
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A steady and reliable murder mystery crime novel. What does that mean? It is very readable but does not thrill, the story is good but predictable and the ending is not surprising. DCI Flanagan gets involved in an old case she assisted in several years ago. She got to be the only Police person 12 year old Ciaran Devine would talk to after confessing to murdering his foster parent. She believes there is more to his confession than is visible to everyone else. It is now seven years later and Ciaran is being released from lock up. His probation officer Paula Cunningham calls Serena Flanagan to get first hand understanding of her new assignee. As always curiosity is irresistible and his release starts a deadly chain of events.
