A new detective series in the style of Prime Suspect from a great new talent from the UK. A series of deaths -- apparent suicides -- of vulnerable young girls is baffling police in London: the bodies are found in the naves of churches after having fallen from a great height. Thanks to a badly-handled leak, the press are all clamoring for a serial killer called The Bridegroom, and amidst the maelstrom of conflicting theories from the media, criminal profilers, politically competitive colleagues and the general circus surrounding a major murder enquiry, the chilling deaths mount up... Elena Forbes writes the kind of creepy and atmospheric crime novel that we love, populated by a cast of fresh and engaging characters: Mark Tartaglia, the Italian-Scottish detective whose good looks get him in to all sorts of trouble, and whose single status is a constant challenge for his sociable sister and extended family; his spiky yet emotionally intelligent colleague Sam Donovan; and his old boss Trevor Clarke, who tries to give Mark good advice while lying in a hospital bed . Together they are piecing together evidence that will lead them to the worst kind of serial killer, one for whom the hunt for a victim and the crime squad's hunting of him are both an equally seductive and irresistible game.

A solid police procedural with 2 interesting MC's, although I got the sense we're being set up for a "will they or won't they" situation in the near future.
I found the middle dragged with long passages of unnecessary info that slowed the pace/intensity of the investigation. Conversely, the ending was rushed & quickly wrapped up with one of the major plot lines disappearing completely.

This is quite good, but drags a bit in parts.

This is avery well written gritty mystery novel. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series Our Lady Of Pain.
