Terrific book with a fascinating protagonist
This is the first book I’ve read in this series and I’m putting the rest on my TBR list right away. Even though events in earlier books are referred to, the book worked fine as a standalone and focused on a new case. Zoe sees the world through numbers and the author does an excellent job of showing us how she sees things, the problems this causes her and the confusion it causes her new partner because he is unaware of it. The plot is an interesting mix of town history, multiple murders and a mentally disturbed killer. The tension ramps up until the end and the mystery kept me guessing. A very well-written book with a nice balance between character development and plot.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
