As The Crow Flies (The DI Nick Dixon Crime Series) - Damien Boyd
Not bad for a first novel in a series, but the main character was not quite 3-dimensional enough for my liking (or to keep me wanting to continue with the series). And then there's the (inevitable?) main-male-character-is-immediately-attracted-to-main-female-character sub-plot despite the fact we can't see why that would be, except for proximity. None of the supporting characters really get fleshed out, at least not on the police side of things.

Could have done with a copy edit too, though I'm probably pickier than most when it comes to dodgy grammar. The perils of teaching English!
