My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thought I’d go for some crime a bit more closer to home in London, The Murder Bag is the first story in the DC Max Wolfe series. It starts off really exciting with Wolfe on a counterterrorism surveillance job, he then gets moved to the murder team just as a banker is found dead over his desk with his throat slit. Soon the banker is not the only victim and it’s soon apparent that the link is a group of friends from a private school.
There were a few holes, like a minor character seeming to escape injury whereas the person who rescues her gets seriously injured and how a lowly DC seems to be doing the lions share of the work, you kind of wonder what the rest of the team is doing but overall it’s pretty good and it tackled some heavy issues. I’ve read other reviews that say that Parsons spends too much time on Wolfe’s family life but I quite liked that and it made him seem more real. I will be reading the next one in the series.
