"Our Stolen Pieces" by James Hunt


Great cover and the excellent blurb pulled me in. I liked the building relationship and the development of trust between the two main detective characters. Their backstories were interesting, but Jim seemed too young for his part. Even though his troubled childhood had seasoned him as a person, I'm not sure that correlates with working experience and moving up the ranks. Their case promised to be edgy with the development of the love triangle amongst the victims' parents, but that turned out not to be pertinent to the story. I don't think therapists would volunteer as much information as they did in this book either. The children's' recovery seemed to happen extremely fast. A couple of days. Although, that did make the story move quickly. This book was okay; a quick and easy read with your firm suspension of disbelief.
