    One thought on “Killers”

    1. This book is smack dab in the middle of a crime series which features Jack Willows and Claire Parker, homicide detectives.Dr. Gerard Roth is a well-respected employee of the Vancouver Public Aquarium. There was nothing he loved more than swimming in the tanks with the sharks. He wasn’t always alone. The sharks were not the meanest thing in the water Dr. Roth was a mean, vicious man.His body is found in the tanks that hold a pair of killer whales.

    3. You can read this independent of the other books in this series and still have a good time. The setting is interesting and the characters well developed. Jack and Clare make a good team. Neatly written. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC- you will like this if you enjoy mysteries with a slight twist. Note that this is a reissue of a book published in 1993 so the technologies etc. of today were not available.

    4. I didn't know this was a series when I started to read the book and found I was a little lost with how the characters interacted with each other. The mystery is good with the right amount of balance to keep readers reading to the end of the story and wanting a little moreC from Netgalley
