Joesbury's interest in Lacey personal or professional Will Lacey cope as the case pushes her into the limelight And does the team have the skill to outwit one of the nastiest serial killers Londoners have fallen prey to since the killer's infamous role model Jack the Ripper From the Trade Paperback edition. I m becoming a big fan of SJ Bolton It s not that there s anything terribly new here but I like the way this woman thinks and puts a story together Interestingly I read Dead Scared the second Lacey Flint outing first What made me go back and read the first Now You See Me was the excellent interview and talk with the author on The Readers July 2nd Part of The Readers Summer Reading Club the first segment was a talk with SJ Bolton intrigued me to go back and set the Lacey Flint character in my mind I postponed the last segment of the podcast loaded with spoilers until after I read the book That I read Dead Scared first didn t hamper my enjoyment of either but I did learn things about Lacey that I didn t know in Now You See Me The character Lacey Flint and her interaction with other members of the London Police is what makes the read for me The mindset of a female policewoman her means of detection her working relationship with male staff and general dealings with the public are interesting to explore Now You See Me is classed as crime fiction I do like crime but I love it when it has strong psychological themes as well as some good twists and turns One review that I read thought there was nothing original in Now You See Me that this story has been told before I think that is true of many books the old how many plots are there uestion Hey there is a murder there is a killer there is a person trying to find the killer and prevent killing This simple story can be new depending on how the author chooses to get you from point to point I think SJ s plotting and writing is excellent and well thought out She herself states that she leads you a bit in Now You See Me and she d be surprised if you could not figure out a few things for yourself Yes I did but this made me think about the character of Lacey comparing her to people in my own life who sometimes make me step back and wonder about who they really are I also loved the back story of the homeless which is termed sleeping rough It almost worries me how well Bolton writes these scenes This worry also relates to the theme of rape and violence to women If this is not enough there s a bit of history regarding Jack the Ripper which should interest fans of this long unsolved case There s also a bit of music running throughout the story and one particular song that will keep sounding in my head as the story fades and I m on to something new One point to ponder Flint states We were taught in training that it s human instinct to turn left rather than right and that with no other motivation people will head to their left Now I always thought that we look left and turn right when entering a venue I wonder if this is due to our different driving habitsBolton says she does not intend to keep Flint going forever Her fans might demand she does I hope she sticks to her guns and maybe does one or two which allows for fleshing out the character and her relationships to a natural end Bolton has written stand alone books I enjoyed Sacrifice and will definitely seek out the others as well as any new ones she writes
