Blood in the Water , finally, the last of the December books! I read Danielle's review (actually, it was her second review of this series that caught my interest) a while back and checked with the library, but they didn't have any of Galbraith's books. So I ordered a copy.
I liked Alice Rice and, since Edinburgh is my favorite city, the book has two-fold appeal. Blood in the Water is the first in the series, introducing Alice and her superiors, co-workers, and partner. I would expect all of the characters will be fleshed out further as the series proceeds.
Although I found myself questioning a few details, I liked the novel; I especially like that I began with the first one and have three more in the series to read. This give me the opportunity to watch the way Galbraith develops the series, the characters, and her technique without having to wait a long time for the next book to be published!
