A Transcript of Susan Krich's 5 Star Review
This was a very enjoyable book.
As I started the second chapter, I was reminded of "Rosewood" a TV show that I used to watch every week.
It is not the same but the forensics lab and some characters are reminiscent of it. Sometimes this can cause a comparison that is unfair but the book did not disappoint me at all.
The story line is interesting and moves right along.
I liked the twists, turns and surprises along the way and at the end.
A Transcript of Miriam Smith's 5 star review.
I was pleasantly surprised at just how good "Moorland Forensics - Bound by Polaris" was, and how much I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
Muriel Jennings, elderly mother and owner of the very successful Jennings Clay Co., has been murdered. She is survived by her children and business partners Stella and Mark Jennings. Can Moorland Forensic Consultants help solve this mysterious and baffling crime. Can a book "The Sinner's Daughter" based on a Dartmoor serial killer from 15 years ago hold all the answers???
This was a really intriguing murder mystery book that kept me guessing till the end and I loved the little interesting paragraphs in between chapters eerily relating to the storyline regarding the serial murders. It turns out there is actually two storylines running alongside each other throughout the story which tie together at the end seamlessly and really keeps your interest going until the conclusion.
James, Fiona and Katie Sinclair are the very intelligent and knowledgeable siblings who own and run Moorland Forensics and are delightfully likeable and engaging characters. The way the author Julie D. Jones incorporated bits of each of their previous private life was very interesting and clever. I can easily see future books delving more into their pasts.
There's a lot of forensic knowledge covered in the plot and the author must have carried out a huge amount of research to able to describe all the technical equipment and processes involved in forensic science.
"Moorland Forensics" really is a smashing crime novel that I'd highly recommend and I truly hope to read more about the intriguing cases the Sinclair siblings are given to assist solving.
