NO CORNERS FOR THE DEVIL (Police Procedural-England-Cont) – G+
Olive – Standalone
Constable, 2005- UK Hardcover
Sally Baxter, her husband and three children, have moved to a roundhouse with cottages in a small farming community in Cornwall. The oldest son, Luke, gave his classmate Samantha a ride home one night. The next day, his youngest, and very sensitive brother, Ben, along with his friend Malachi, finds Samantha's body in a tide pool on the beach. Luke is the last know person to see her but it's Sally's husband, Rob, who seems most disturbed. DCI Cannon, whose wife and son were killed in an automobile accident, is in charge of the investigation.
The plot was good and there were enough suspects to keep me going, but the motive was a little weak. What I really liked about the book was the characters. There are a lot of them, but each was unique and interesting in their own right and I really liked the relationships between the characters. I can only hope this is the beginning of a series as I should really like to see how these characters develop over time.
