by Ridley PearsonI love a good mystery but I'll admit it the murder mystery can wear a bit thin at times.Thankfully, I stumbled across Ridley Pearson's The Pied Piper, which is a solidly crafted mystery that doesn't necessarily rely upon murder as the inciting action.
Instead, the plot follows a team of Seattle detectives who are trying to stop ta serial kidnapper.With short chapters, Pearson not only lets us into the lives of his detective team but also into the lives of the victims' families. It makes for a bit of a slow burn early in the novel but it pays dividends once you reach the mid-point of the novel and frustrations begin to boil over.
If there's a drawback to this novel, it would be that it's the fifth book of a series and I haven't read the four leading up to it.This means that certain storylines don't quite hold as much weight with me early in the story as they might had I read a few of the initial installments.But this one was strong enough that I will seek out other installments of the series and give them a try.
