    Number 3 in the Dr Anya Crichton series.Bit of a misnomer this one as Anya Crichton is completely AWOL here.But that apart, it s a terrific read.Feisty, neurotic D.S Kate Farrer takes the lead in this one.With new partner, D.C Oliver Parke, Kate is given the lead on a case that involves the dead body of a female that appears to have been burnt to death Just as Kate and Oliver are getting their teeth into this one they are told to drop it and take over a new case Safe to say, Kate is no well Number 3 in the Dr Anya Crichton series.Bit of a misnomer this one as Anya Crichton is completely AWOL here.But that apart, it s a terrific read.Feisty, neurotic D.S Kate Farrer takes the lead in this one.With new partner, D.C Oliver Parke, Kate is given the lead on a case that involves the dead body of a female that appears to have been burnt to death Just as Kate and Oliver are getting their teeth into this one they are told to drop it and take over a new case Safe to say, Kate is no well pleased at the sudden change and has no problems letting everyone know how she feelings.As the story evolves it becomes apparent that the two cases are not separate but are, in fact, the same case All the while Kate has her suspicions that her new partner, Oliver, is on the take On the whole he seems to be a competent officer but Kate knows in her gut that there is something no quite right about DC Oliver Parke.This is a good entertaining read with enough twists and turns to keep you turning pages The end was a real what the moment.A 4 star recommended read

    Skin and Bone by Kathryn Fox 3 in the Anya Crichton series.Read from July 13 to 15, 2014I was wondering if this book had been erroneously recorded as being a part of the Anya Crichton series, because she is not in it at all and isn t even referred to except for a bit at the start noting her connection to Kate Farrer Although it does go into Kate s abduction and her being held captive in the previous Anya Crichton novel, and also mentions her relationship to Anya and her young son, so After Skin and Bone by Kathryn Fox 3 in the Anya Crichton series.Read from July 13 to 15, 2014I was wondering if this book had been erroneously recorded as being a part of the Anya Crichton series, because she is not in it at all and isn t even referred to except for a bit at the start noting her connection to Kate Farrer Although it does go into Kate s abduction and her being held captive in the previous Anya Crichton novel, and also mentions her relationship to Anya and her young son, so After reading some of the reviews, I now understand that K Fox appears to be switching between the two main characters which allows her to give us a fuller insight into their distinctive roles and personality traits, which turned out to work quite well as it introduces the different and unique fields of expertise of each character without complicating or cluttering every story.In this way, as we progress through the series we should have a better understanding of each characters individual role and input, without the need to clutter the stories with in depth explanations each time.at least that is how I understand it, and that works well for me.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one and was held in suspense until the end The beauty of reading these so long after the first publication is that I can see how K Fox has improved in her story telling since her first and second books in this series and look forward to continuing with the rest of the series and then others.4 s

    3.5 stars I felt a little jilted that a book in the Anya Crichton series didn t contain any Anya, but once I managed to page back in the main character s involvement in a previous book, I felt better about it The story started very slowly, and seemed to almost drag, until the action exploded with a bang I was so sure I had worked out the mastermind behind everything, that I got a shock at the final reveal Now that I think about it, one small storyline remained unresolved, and there wasn t so 3.5 stars I felt a little jilted that a book in the Anya Crichton series didn t contain any Anya, but once I managed to page back in the main character s involvement in a previous book, I felt better about it The story started very slowly, and seemed to almost drag, until the action exploded with a bang I was so sure I had worked out the mastermind behind everything, that I got a shock at the final reveal Now that I think about it, one small storyline remained unresolved, and there wasn t so much an ending as the book stopped

    Another gripping tale from the remarkable Kathryn Fox This one focuses on Detective Kate Farrer who was abducted in the previous book It concentrates on her return to work after a leave of absence to recover from her ordeal A burned body, a missing baby and corruption in the force makes for an edge of your seat story.

    The protagonist of this 3rd novel by Kathryn Fox was one of the characters in the first novel As the first and second were about Anya Crichton, I expected her to reappear in the 2nd or 3rd chapter of this, but finally realised that Fox had switched I quite like that Kate Farrar this novel s protagonist was mentioned in the second novel Without Consent , and Anya was mentioned in this both very plausibly And as they were friends in the first Malicious Intent A Novel , it seems likely t The protagonist of this 3rd novel by Kathryn Fox was one of the characters in the first novel As the first and second were about Anya Crichton, I expected her to reappear in the 2nd or 3rd chapter of this, but finally realised that Fox had switched I quite like that Kate Farrar this novel s protagonist was mentioned in the second novel Without Consent , and Anya was mentioned in this both very plausibly And as they were friends in the first Malicious Intent A Novel , it seems likely that they ll join together again in the future Or perhaps there ll be 2 series going on, as it were, with each playing a bit part in the other s.I thought this one particularly well done Kate has returned after some months sick leave read Malicious Intent for the reason , and is stsill suffering flashbacks and panic attacks However, both the police need her back working, and she herself needs to be back trying to make a difference to the owrld or at least, her little part of it.Kate has a new partner an interesting guy, with hidden depths and there are the usual personalities to deal with at work The first job they are on is a suspicious fire and a dead body, but then they re taken off it to serach for a missing girl What seems initially to be quite a straightforward, though nuisance, case, becomes a lotcomplicated.Lots of goings on to keep the reader involved Excellent

    I forgot to post this review at the time I wrote itThis was a different Kathryn Fox as it didn t involve Anya Crichton apart from a brief reference I missed Anya I really enjoyed this book although I did keep mixing Detective Kate Farrer up with Detective Ella Marconi from Katherine Howell s series , but I did miss Anya.

    This book is as good as the second one I didn t like or relate to Kate s character at first, but eventually, it was through her new partner, Oliver, that I began to okay Kate, considering she s the main character Good web of a criminal plot Makes a good crime read.

    This is a bit of a spin off as Dr Anya Crichton is mentioned but doesn t appear in this book The main character is Detective Kate Farrer who was in book 1 of the series This had a different feel to the previous books with the focus on the police officers The plot was fairly complex and I came nowhere close to working it all out and had to wait for the reveal.

    yawn this was pretty dull, no suspense, kind of muddled writing like it tried to point you one way, then another, but in a clumsy way and trying too hard dull characters did i miss a book before this there were references to the main character s prior trauma, but nothing in detail , run of the mill mystery, tried for a twist at the end but was just kind of huh wouldn t seek out another book by this author would have given it 1.5 if i could give half stars i ve read worse, so it was a yawn this was pretty dull, no suspense, kind of muddled writing like it tried to point you one way, then another, but in a clumsy way and trying too hard dull characters did i miss a book before this there were references to the main character s prior trauma, but nothing in detail , run of the mill mystery, tried for a twist at the end but was just kind of huh wouldn t seek out another book by this author would have given it 1.5 if i could give half stars i ve read worse, so it was a little better than one
