finished reading

This is an interesting first of a series: the lead is a minor character.  Simon Serrailler doesn't narrate, doesn't feature in the legwork of the procedural, and doesn't interact much with who I consider the main character, Freya Graffam.

The author developed the characters well, each victim's backstory kept me turning pages to discover the why.  I loved learning the workings of Simon Serrailler's family in the community and how they were integral to the story.

I'm curious to read another in the series.

From the publisher:
Having transferred to the small cathedral town of Lafferton from London's "Met," police detective Freya Graffham explores her new community and becomes fascinated by Chief Insp. Simon Serrailler, her enigmatic superior. Though she fits well within the local police force, she finds herself unable to let go what seems like a routine missing persons report on a middle-aged spinster. When yet more townspeople turn up missing, her hunch is verified and a serious police search begins, bringing her into closer proximity with Serrailler at the same time it exposes her to danger.
