‘Red Ribbons’ by Louise Phillips. Hachette Books Ireland (2012)


A very well-written crime thriller, this. It certainly travels at a fast pace and holds a

RedRibbonsreader’s interest to the end. A little above the usual too, as regards the psychology of the characters.  Can’t say much more because of the nature of the genre (well, the butler did it). If you liked Kay Scarpetta and Sara Lund, you’ll like this.

Louise gives a fascinating insight into the handling of the investigation by the police ‘behind the scenes’. Also for Irish readers it’s good to see our Garda Siochana and Dublin featuring, instead of New York and LA all the time.
