Cast Iron by Peter May

Cast Iron (The Enzo Files, #6)Cast Iron by Peter May
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Scottish detective in France is not your everyday crime thriller but Enzo Macleod is making his sixth appearance in this novel. An extreme drought in the west of France has uncovered a skeleton in water reservoir with a bag over its skull. The remain belong to Lucie Martin who disappeared fourteen years earlier. Enzo has been challenged to solve cold cases and this is the sixth. As he starts to dig into the details of the case he finds he has some strange connections which he cannot quite explain. He needs to resolve the case quickly as everyone close to him is in peril. This is a classic detective thriller where the investigator gets too close to the crime for comfort. It is a good recipe for a very entertaining read, it may not be the most riveting book to read but steady and predictable, in that there are twists you did not expect that spice up the action.
