In this story, we follow DS Grace Allendale who, along with her colleagues, are investigating the tragic event of a young boy potentially being thrown from a balcony in a block of flats in a community where they keep their own secrets and others in the building for fear of their own lives.  Along with this, you have what seems to be a 'bigger picture' story that I am guessing is building up with every book in this series but I can't comment on that as I have not yet picked up any of the other books in this series but that doesn't spoil this story.  You can easily read this as a stand alone.

For me, the pace of the story was a little slower than what I would have liked but when you get to the main part of the story and DS Grace is interviewing the various 'suspects' around the block of flats I soon got stuck into trying to figure out who was telling the truth and who was lying.  This was more about the different characters, their personalities and what they have or have not got away with or what secrets they are keeping.  That was the best part of this for me.

A good story and one that for sure makes me intrigued to pick up the other books at some point in the future to see what the bigger picture is and learn more about DS Grace and her family connections.
