incompetent or corrupt police force that haven t been able to solve the case There s a pushy and politically motivated senior officer And finally, there s the lurking presence of the FBI agent gone bad the vigilante fugitive from law, taking the law into his own hands.THE SECRET FRIEND may appeal to a particular type of reader Fans or believers in CSI s actively investigating cases and those interested in the technical wizardry that goes along with crime scene analysis There are certainly snippets of technical information sprinkled through the book which show the depth of the research or knowledge that went into the writing To help widen the possible appeal, you ve got all these other elements built in the rogue FBI guy with the astounding connections inexplicably one step ahead of the cops and Darby all the way the corrupt cop the serial killer who may just engender sympathy in some readers the lurking presence of the closed down institution where all too many horrible events could have occurred.I wouldn t be at all surprised if this book doesn t appeal to many readers, but for me it was too much Whilst it was competently written, the main sub plot, the rogue ex FBI agent, just didn t work for me and as he gotandfocus, I got less and less interested The serial killer s motivations and behaviour seemed to have some potential, but they don t remain the main focus of the book and kept getting lost in the other sub plots and the snippets of forensic information that were packed in Christopher Cole Chris Mooney is an American journalist, author and academic who focuses

CSI The CSI is Darby McCormick she is the central protagonist She is pulled into the case of Emma Hale and finds there is a lack of evidence or explanation for why somebody would have snatched Emma, kept her alive for months, and then finally killed her.Emma s father is powerful and wealthy and wants answers So much so that he starts his own investigation Then a second student is found dead in

complications due to an FBI agent gone bad who takes the law into his own hands.The Secret Friend will appeal to readers who believe in CSI s active investigation of cases and also those interested in the technical wizardry that goes along with crime scene analysis There are snippets of technical information sprinkled through the book which show the depth of the author s research and knowledge that went into the writing of this book.The book was competently written I enjoyed it and I had not read a similar story before If you are interested in the input of the CSI to criminal cases, I highly recommend this book Malcolm Fletcher makes an appearance in this book and leads Darby and her team on a merry chase Or does he In his character and the way he leads them, I see glimpses of Hannibal playing psychological games with Clarice I don t have to tell you to expect the unexpected this seems to be a given with Chris Mooney I have to say it has been a while since I enjoyed the games an author plays with his readers as much as this Gripping read, that will not give you room to breathe. McCormick kicks butt in this book and while some of it might be a bit far fetched, she s a very likable detective after the truth, doesn t play politics, and can shoot a gun and take care of herself Enjoyed this book so much I went on to read the next in the series. Good on technical stuff, but thin on plot.The characters aren t particularly strong or believable But if you suspend your disbelief the book rockets along at a good pace Fairly gory, and it felt overdone in places.I can t say I d be rushing to pick up another novel by this author, but as it was given to me by a friend, I don t want to be too critical either.
