Reading matters

Blindsided (The Detective Jane Candiotti Series, #2)Blindsided by Clyde Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Back in March I read "Fall From Grace" by Clyde Phillips with great pleasure. First and foremost it is a scrupulously structured police procedural and it came as no surprise to learn that the writer's background includes stints as executive producer of acclaimed television series. But his stories featuring Jane Candiotti and Kenny Marks stand out, too, for the way that a very credible romance sub-plot is developed without any dilution of the conventions of the fast-paced thriller genre. The Candiotti family angle is managed with a result which can only be called heart-warming and wonderfully sentimental.

All of the foregoing holds good for Jane and Kenny's second outing in "Blindsided".

It is a joy to find myself simply enjoying the reading experience after struggling of late with ebooks which were something of a struggle... on a variety of levels.
