This is my 71st read for the year
This is the story of Michael Digson who is recruited by the local police to help solve a cold case. He has a natural talent for forensics, so he starts the hunt for a missing boy, and in the process continues to try and solve his own cold case - the one involving the disappearance of his mother. What Digson uncovers is not only the missing boy, but several other people who went missing on the island and uncover a spree killer
This book was fine. It got a lot of 5 star reveiws and my guess is there are not a lot of books that take place in Granada. The color of the island came through nicely in the book - the author writes as the locals speak - and that adds some flavor you don't see in many books. It found it a bit "all over the place" and only mildly entertaining. However- it is a short book, and it checked the box for my Read The World challenge, so we will hang onto it for now.
