    The crimes in the novel were vicious and the main perpetrator not only vicious but completely insane It was gruesome and the author successfully illustrated this through her writing Although the ending was not completely unexpected it was still exciting.

    A while ago I was searching for crime fiction set in Australia when I discovered an author called Leah Giarratano I eagerly downloaded the first book in this series called Vodka Doesn t Freeze and had it read after just a few sittings It was probably one of the strongest and most enjoyable crime fiction debuts I have read After finishing this, book number two in the Jill Jackson series I ...
