I received a free ebook of this title, Bramard’s Case, from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
The summary of this book sounded really intriguing, a serial killer who targeted the policeman’s family, the crime going unsolved for years, the policeman living a life of “quiet desperation” basically waiting to die, and a series of clues in the form of letters. Finally, one of the clues gives Corso a break. He picks up the case pursuing the killer with new energy. This is not fast paced or not even what I would call a thriller. A great deal of the book is spent inside Corso’s head, which can be a monotonous place.
I really thought I would like this but I just didn’t connect with it or get drawn in to the story as I would expect to. I found myself skimming rather than reading at times. A disappointing read for me but it might work for someone else.
Well that’s too bad, I like a police mystery. Sometimes I get a book like that and it’s a disappointment.
