In an Oyster Shell – Not as amazing as the first Forensics Instincts book I read but it was still pretty good.
The Pearls – As you would come to expect in Kane’s thrillers the mystery was multi-faceted and complicated. There were lots of details and trails that the investigators went over. It kept you guessing as the reader.
It was fun to read the first book. In this book, you get to see the beginning of Forensic Instincts. You get a glimpse into the inner workings of the team. You get to see Claire come onto the team. She was my favorite character in the sixth book A Face To Die For the book that introduced me to the series. You also get to see how their dog comes onto the team.
I like that this book is packed with things to keep you interested in like romance. Casey has a complicated relationship with FBI investigator. As they are both working on the case one as a professional and one as a private investigator there are complications.
The Sand – I didn’t like this book as well as the first book I read but it was still good. I will continue with the series.
