Minette Walters – The Breaker

1093107More crime reading for me.  Kate Sumner’s  body is washed up on a deserted beach in Dorset and  her traumatized three-year-old daughter is discovered twenty miles away walking the streets of Poole.

There are no shortage of suspects including the particularly strange sex obsessed Steve and Kate’s loner husband whose alibi looks a bit dodgy.  As the investigation continues Kate emerges as a woman with a complicated past.

This is an enjoyable whodunnit but there seem to be the usual comments on women asking to be raped judging by what they are wearing, and I found it hard to tell if this was the author’s view or just that of the characters.  I loved the Dorset setting and it keeps you reading though, so a great one for next to the pool.
