Fourteen J T Ellison

Not sure why I keep trying American crime. It doesn’t do it for me. In this one, our heroine is a homicide detective. She is drop dead gorgeous and wealthy. She is a shot first and ask questions only when necessary type. Her assistant is an FBI profiler who doesn’t do a lot of profiling. But he is drop dead gorgeous and probably wealthy but we aren’t told this. Also in the mix is another profiler. She is drop dead gorgeous and wealthy.
So for a start, give me an honest British crime solver. They are usually not that good looking, have personal problems and drink lots of tea. But at least they are normal humans.
I would hate to write a ‘what is wrong with the plot’ scenario, but it wouldn’t be hard. There is a shit load of co-incidence in the plot. Let the quote tell it all “Tell me again, it’s too fantastic for words.” Sorry to be harsh, but I can see why the Americans are embracing crime from Sweeden etc.
