    8. My View This is the perfect Australian based in Qld authentic voiced, police procedural I loved this read with its authentic police voice, its gripping narrative, its wonderful strong female protagonists and its Queensland setting The details of policing investigating that the author shares with the reader are intriguing and realistic Too often crime fiction novels or movies TV series based on crime fiction skip a lot of these type of details, giving their protagonists the power to do as they pl [...]

    10. Trigger warnings kidnapping, murder, rape, animal deaths, mentions of a murder victim having been attacked by a dog.For a debut crime novel, this was pretty solid The author is a serving police officer, so the police procedural side of things is definitely on point The pacing was good, I liked Sammi as a character However, there were times when the writing was a little.ical, perhaps It wasn t dry, it was just lacking emotion or tension or something And honestly, I think it might be partly the fa [...]

    13. A thrilling debut by J.M Peace, A Time to Run tells of what happens when a police officer turns victim As a serving police officer, Peace would have many experiences in policing and the challenge was to put all this in a book that engages the reader And it was so furiously engaging, I finished it in a day a long time ago, I could ve said, in one sitting , but with a job 2 little ones a day basically means 1 sitting.Samantha Sammi Willis is a dedicated police officer You would expect that as such [...]

    18. There s a lot of crime fiction out there that is all about the investigator and the protagonist, but A TIME TO RUN tips that right on it s ear, setting up a scenario in which an investigator cop is the next victim of a mad, dangerous man who makes a sport out of hunting down the women he s abducted.So, not a book for those readers that find that concept of the randomly selected victim and the barking mad, vicious killer too much Particularly as this killer is appalling and very clever about it I [...]

    19. Entretenido Tal vez no me sorpendi tanto porque recientemente vi un cap tulo de Archivos del FBI donde se presentaba un caso con el mismo argumento Est muy bien escrito, la trama es gil, directa y sencilla.

    20. Buenobo decir que Lisbeth Salander elev mucho mis est ndares de heroina en la novela negra y por lo tanto la protagonista de esta historia no me conquist completamente.Primero para ser una polic a experimentada, fue muy ingenua.Segundo no creo que Sammi fuera tan tenaz como la quisieron vender, creo que m s bien tuvo much sima suertebuenoella era la convenci n anual de toda la buena suerte del mundo.Tercero fantasmas buenos NOOOO, NOOOO Una historia forzada y a la que le falt m s suspenso, menos [...]

    22. Es el t pico libro que s lo con la portada y la sinopsis, me llama la atenci n inmediatamente Y la verdad es que en general me ha gustado me lo he le do en dos d as Lo peor es que ya sabemos de qu trata desde el comienzo y no hay demasiadas sopresas, por no decir, ninguna As que entretenido pero la verdad es que esperaba alguna vuelta de hoja hacia el final.

    23. El inicio del libro me emocion demasiado, no pude dejar de leer porque quer a saber en qu terminaba toda la tensi n que se estaba desarrollando, pero lamentablemente en el camino la persecuci n fue haci ndose aburrida, predecible y est tica Entretenido, pero nada m s.

    24. I finished this in two nights If it hadn t been so late last night, I might have kept reading, that s how into this book I was.I enjoy crime novels, especially when there s a serial killer to hunt down This one is a bit different because as the book begins, we know in the first chapter who the killer is the Barman at a pub where police officer Sammi is blowing off steam on a night out with the girls We also learn the stakes very quickly as Sammi is drugged and kidnapped, and once the killer has [...]

    28. 3.5.Un thriller que te mantiene en tensi n, la historia se va relatando haciendo saltos entre los distintos personajes, esto contribuye a esa sensaci n continua de querer saber m s , es uno de estos libros que lees casi de un tir n Como contra lo que si que parecio es que falto alg n giro argumental , desde el principio se intuye el final, y alguna interacci n m s entre cazador y presa me falto m s de esto y me sobro tanto detalle que ya conociamos al relatar de nuevo la historia en el encuentro [...]
