Killing Sunday Review

Killing Sunday Review
It was March and it was hot in Sydney, Australia when the body of an unidentified young girl washed up to shore in the harbor at Woolwich Baths. Detective Inspector Nick Rimis was in charge of the case, and present at the gruesome scene.

With a double degree in art history and law, twenty-eight-year old new recruit Senior Constable Jill Brennan was in the right spot at the right time to go undercover in an attempt to solve a Sydney art fraud case. Jill’s undercover assignment began when she pretended to be a police officer, and she later was assigned to play a role as the assistant director of the Dunworth Gallery.

During an investigation they thought was straight forward, strong pressure to solve the fraud case from higher up placed the new comer Brennan in a difficult position. Rimis and Brennan also ran into money laundering, drugs, and murder with surprising consequences.

Interested in moving up the chain of command, Senior Constable Brennan wanted to advance to detective as quickly as she could, and hoped this case would do that for her.

Killing Sunday is the second novel in Gina Amos’ new series following Secrets and Lies. Detective Inspector Nick Rimis and Senior Constable Jill Brennan are the main characters, and Amos has seamlessly created a bond between the two whose growing charismatic relationship adds to the story. Readers may want to keep an eye out for a possible romantic edge to their working alliance in future novels.

This novel hits all the right spots. Numerous twists and turns keep readers flipping pages in this intriguing mystery. A fast-paced story line and well-rounded characters, especially the two main characters, will keep readers looking forward to more of this solid series.

The author used description and local flavor to build a world filled with men and women who played an important part in the backdrop of this story.
